4x4 springs pic request

Does anyone have pics of the 4x4 front springs on the TRD fj? Just curious what the lift would look like with 265 75 16 tires. And for that matter if anyone has 5100s on this same model fj. I get worried about going this route cause I had 5100s on my Tacoma with bfg at's and the ride was uncomfortably rough. You could feel every single bump and crack in the road. E rated tire.

Why not get out your jack and lift the truck up a couple of inches and see for yourself - on your own vehicle - right in front of you?

Because most of the time a .75 inch setting on a 5100 shock is not exactly .75 inches on your vehicle. So on and so forth.

Here's mine. They are for sale if you are interested. I will have the back springs by Saturday.


Edit: Its not off a TRD FJ. Just a regular 4x4

Re: 4x4 springs pic request

Thanks for the pic, but i was looking for a pic of them mounted on a TRD FJ. Possibly interested. How much are you looking to sell them for.

My point is that you cannot really tell how much lift you are actually going to get until you actually put them on your truck. I had 5100's set at .75" on my tacoma prerunner and it was more like a full inch or more of lift. Hence I am looking for a pic to see what kind of lift i will achieve with 4x4 springs. Sure i can get a jack and lift it 1,2,3" into the air, that wont do me any good. Thanks.
