Default FJ55 springs - fit question?

I have a shot at an FJ55 parts truck that has an SOR lift springs on it. Do any FJ55 springs (front or rear) fit an FJ40 of the same era - mid 1970s? I just can't recall from my pig days.

Thanks,

Steve

Front yes, rear no. You'll have to move your hangers in the back to run the rears, but its easy and worth it for the ride quality IMO.

hate to correct you mike, but not necessarily on the fronts. the 55 center pin is centered on their front springs, but they are ofset on the 40 series.

OOPS ! I guess the stock springs off of the front of our 55 were not stock. I flipped them and am running them on my 45.5. My bad.
