    Hi all,

    Quick question about my front and rear leafs on my 1977 FJ40. I'm trying to determine if it has any sort of lift (the person I bought it from did not know). It looks like it might have about 2", but I have no way to tell for sure so I figured I'd start with trying to figure out if I have stock leafs. The shackles are definitely stock. I just seem to have a lot of fender and wheel well clearance compared to most of the stock 40's I see posted on the web. So my question is how many leafs are in the stock springs. Mine have 7.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    my 79 had 7 in the front and six in the back.
    If your cruiser sits level it probably has been changed or possibly an add a leaf in the back.

    Thanks for checking on those leafs all of you. I'll just have to assume that mine are stock and they're not as beat up and sagging as I expected. This is good.
