Leveling Kit

I just bought a '14 FJ 4x4. I want to put a leveling kit on it. Do I need to change out the shocks? Thanks!

Re: Leveling Kit

You do not need to replace shocks.

You can get a small spacer for just the front or for a little more money: http://trdparts4u.toyotaofdallas.com...dproduct=-8315

Included in kit:
Front: 3" Front Lift Spacer Kit -- CNC Machined From T-6 6061 Aluminum.

6 longer top plate spacer studs.

Rear: (2) Rear coil spring spacers.

Complete lift kit, nothing else needed for level / lift

Works great with stock shocks

Re: Leveling Kit

all you need is the 5100's on front set on the top notch, spacers are usually crap and the bolts/ studs strip out... good luck with your choice...

Re: Leveling Kit

as far as level goes.. on a stock fj measuring from the center of the wheel up to the fender.. ground ,up, you will get about 39" inches front and rear. the level most are looking for on the fj is the top of the tire to the fender, raising the front will get the level look you are looking for. hope that makes sense..
