Hmmm...I'm shackle reversed up front so does it make sense to run a set of these just in the rear? If so I might be interested in a set along with the springs...

I'll be home later tonight if you want to come drive my 40. I like the way they ride.

do these offer any lift or are they just stock height?

I'll have to check...I don't know but I believe they are slightly larger. Here is a cool pic of what they allow the springs to do with the "proper" shackle angle.

Will they fit a 1981 FJ40?

The specs say ‘64-80 so we'll have to figure out what changed in 81.

iirc, it was the spring width...i think they were a tad wider

Yes, that's true. However, I have earlier springs on my '81, with customized shackles to allow this. It's a true bastard child.

Mike, do you run these on the front only, or both front and rear?

I run them front and rear.

Any chance that I can stop by and take a look at your setup? Interested in looking to see if a set will fit the rear of my Patrol!

bushing size and pin diameter also changed. i believe they are basically 60 spring ends after 1980.

That's what I thought too. Might even be right. :)
