4x2 lift help

hi all,

I would like to lift my 2wd 2010 fj about 3 inches. I am not sure if I need to change the suspension, get an extra spacer lift, or get a 4x4 axle to put in the front to make it look level and am looking for some direction. I would like to do this purely for cosmetic reasons... I mainly do street driving and don't do much off roading, I would just like to lift it 3 inches to make it look like a 4wd and do not care about performance. Leveling is my main concern. TIA

Put some Bilstein 5100 Adjustable shocks on the front.

Re: 4x2 lift help

A 3" lift and a level are 2 very different things. You would need to figure out exactly which you are wanting and then we can help you spend your money!

I am wanting a lift but because my fj is 2wd the back will be higher than the front end. I am looking for a solution to this so that both ends are even
