My 94 runner

I just put some land cruiser springs on the back and 1.5 in bj spacers up in the front. Trying to get rid of the notorious sag. It sits a little high in the back but I am hoping the springs settle after a bit of driving around. Thanks to this forum I was able to get the info I needed to get this done since I am not a mechanic, just know enough to get me into trouble most of the time. Here is a before and after photo of my truck.

LC coils

If you got them used they wont settle any more because the Land Cruisers are alot heavier. They look good IMO.

Looking good! I don't think those spring will settle but it looks nice and level to me.

This is a nice truck, After you place springs did it work?

Thanks guys, it seems to look good the more I look at it. I am a huge fan of the 2nd gens, this one is my wifes and I really am thinking I better get me one to build instead of seeing what else I can do to hers. She just wants to drive it. She found a sticker she wants to put on it that says lowriders are for guys who can't get it up. I had to laugh.

what kind of coils did you get? were they new or used? I'm looking at doing this but i'm not sure where to get the coils from. I'd like to get them new so i know their condition. But also what shocks do you get for the front/back? (assuming you just add the adjusted height, but i wanna make sure.)

I bought some used LC springs from someone on the forum. They lifted the back about 3.5 inches and that is why I went with the 1.5 inch ball joint spacers. I found those from a guy in Arizona in machines parts for classic 4runners. I also had to get a 4 inch panhard drop bracket, and still had to shim the bracket over about 3/8 of an inch to get the axle back inline. Not sure why that was so difficult for me. I am not much of a mechanic. To get the ball joint spacers in you have to grind some of the arm away. I just bought new CV axles and am going to drop the front diff to take some of the angle out of the CV axles. I just picked up some Warn manual hubs too. I bought just sky jacker shocks for the front and rear, I don't know the part numbers off the top of my head but they seem to work good.
