Hello People,
Can you recommend a leveling kit for my 2001 FZJ100?
Thanks,

Not sure if that post was sarcastic or not. There is no leveling kit. You can adjust the torsion bars to get the front level if that is all you need. Otherwise you can install a complete suspension if you want more lift.

PS, it is a UZJ100 and not a FZJ100

Christo, aren't there FZJ100's in other markets like AU and the middle east?

Not sure on the designation, but yes there are FZJ100's, but they would be solid axle trucks. Mostly people ask about leveling kits on IFS trucks.

Also known as a 105. But I would find it really strange from to get an international post on this forum.

Thanks Christo. Yes, there was a little sarcasm there. Won't adjusting the torsion bars also stiffen the ride?
Thanks,

Adjusting the t bar will not stiffen the ride. This is a heated topic of discussion. Tightening the t-bar is similar to adding spacers to coil springs. All you have to do is use a floor jack and jackstands to raise the front wheels off the ground. Climb under there and tighen the adjusting bolts. 24-26mm something like that, if I recall. Be sure you get an alignment after as it'll eat through the tires. If you are not running a bumper or winch and don't lift it too much then it's all straight forward and you can use the factory springs(tbars). If you have added a bunch of weight then you may consider a thicker t-bar(higher spring rate). If you want to raise it more than about an 1" then you should think about lowering the diff. It keeps the cv angles within reason. Slee sells a diff drop kit. It lowers the front dif 3/4 of and inch. and allows you to raise the front about 2". There are not too many of us in the club with 100 series. Ask all the questions you want and I'll do my best to bring you up to speed. I did an OME kit and the ride was much better than the factory ride.
