Re: First FJ and question about Rear Suspension
The lift used on your FJ required cutting out a section of the front structural cross member. With these 5.5 - 6 inch kits, there is no safe way to undue, return to stock or install a smaller lift. You are pretty much stuck with what you have. On a positive note, the Daystar 1.5 inch rear spring spacers can be purchased for around 50 bucks. Easy install that you can do yourself.
If you can find a part number printed on your rear springs you can research and determine the "spring rate" i.e. 600 or 650 lbs. If you are going to add weight to the rear of the vehicle it may be necessary to go with a heavier (Stronger) spring at which time you can purchase the correct length (Lift Height) and not use spacers.
