Shocks and Springs Selection for Limited

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to ask a quick question (yes, I've conducted a search, but there isn't specified information available): do the 2013 FJ Cruiser OEM Springs (Front and Back) fit the 2013 4Runner Limited?

Going to be doing the XREAS delete and going with some bilstein B8 5100's, but on Ebay someone is selling a pair of FJ Cruise Springs, front and back, for about $500, so I wanted to make use of the infinite knowledge everyone has to confirm these will fit before making the big purchase.

Not looking to do anything but level the truck out. I don't have, nor do I plan to do anything, besides a roof rack, at this time nor in the near future, so no real lift for me.

Also, if anyone has any alternate suggestions to springs comparable, I'm open to ideas. Looking for, as close to, stock ride but don't want to break the bank with the XREAS replacement as all four shocks are leaking and I'll have to replace these soon. Reason I want to replace the springs is because I'm also at 109k and just figure while I'm in there, I might as well. Thank you so much for any information in advance!

I did this on my 4th gen and got about an inch of lift in the front. I don't think the rear springs will do anything.

If you get rid of the XREAS and get the bilstein, I think it should work? Maybe someone with experience on a 5th gen can chime in.

you could always get an aftermarket 1" spring in the front from pretty much every lift company out there. Look for something that has a spring rate of 600 or less

I found some Dobinsons (1" lift in the front, and stock ride height for the rear) for about $200, so I think this is what I'll go with. I was kind of obsessing about the FJ Cruiser OEM springs for no reason, I guess. Seems like these will work and take care of the "rake" by leveling it out a bit with the 1" lift in the front. Thanks for the quick reply!
