By any chance when swapping with the FJ suspension, I noticed that the toytec body lift is cheaper than the springs. Should I go for the 3 inch body lift and wait to save money. I was thinking about doing the Icon stage 5 suspension with modified high clearance lower control arms.

Just swapped my suspension out this weekend (5100s all around with 07-09 FJC coils)! My question is how long should i wait for everything to settle before i get my truck aligned?

I'd say a day or 2, I wouldn't wait too long afterwards. I'm planning on doing my suspension swap on Saturday with an alignment scheduled for the following Monday morning.

Any pictures with the new FJ suspension?

Got it, Ill see if I can squeeze in somewhere later this week then. Just nervous because I netted a little over 3 (unsettled)in the front, set the strut at 1.75 but it leveled me right out. I think the rear is about 1/4 higher technically, Id have to double check what I got for measurements. Heres a crappy phone pick thoughCompiled: FJ Springs Lift Info for 4th gen-img_4627-jpg

Thanks - I keep going back and forth between setting the front to the second (.85") setting or leaving it on the stock setting and adding a 1/4" top out spacer. I'm not planning on lifting the rear right now so I'd like to keep the lift to around 1.5"-2" total.

Theres a great spreadsheet and thread that was put together that should help you answer that question believe Ark_runner started it

ok, so what needs to be modified on the strut to make a set from a 2010+ work? I found a Toytec Ultimate kit for sale locally, but it's for 10+ 4Runner & 10+ FJ Cruiser...

First page, original post. Not sure if this applies to the ultimate kit though. Toytec could probably clear that up for you.

Just completed the swap over the weekend.

I deleted the XREAS system with 5100s all around. I left the rear springs stock and swapped just the fronts with new OEM 4x4 FJ springs. I set the clip on the bottom/stock setting. As noted from other members, I gained, pretty much, exactly an inch of lift with that combination.

If anyone is interested in doing this swap, I have a used set of front 4x4 FJ springs and a pair of brand new Wheelers 1/4" top out spacers I didn't end up using. Looking to sell to anyone who is interested.
