Anyone with 5th gen springs and 5100s?

Trying to figure out what I would need in the rear spacer wise if I threw some 5th gen springs in with 5100's at 1.75 setting or are these basically like the FJ's?

If anyone is running something like this post up because FJ springs are hard to find these days!

I知 running this. I think you値l be level if you run it. The 5th gen springs will give you about an inch of lift. I知 at at 0.85 setting on the front and happy with the rake I have. If you run 1.75 you値l probably be level but any significant weight in the rear or towing and you値l be squatting in the back

Which 5th gen springs did you use? Are they all the same?

Any pics? I was looking to add a spacer in the rear either way. I have a drawer system that stays in and is full of gear + two bikes so nothing too crazy weight wise. I can find 5th gen springs for cheap all day locally but can't nail find FJ's anywhere.

Should be all the same with exception of the TRD PRO's

You'll want to add a 1.5 rear spacer to avoid negative rake. 5th gen springs have an extra coil than the 4th gens but are the same height (when new).

There's really no reason to use FJ rear springs over 5th gen. 5th gen springs are slightly taller, and slightly stiffer.

Okay cool... so I can add Moog FJ fronts and 5th gen rears+ 1.5"spacer or just 5th gen all the way around + 1.5 spacer and either way it should come out to be around the same look/performance. I'm looking for just a small rake.

The sliders make it seem like there is less lift than there is. You get a better idea in the photo without the sliders
