Re: The Factory OE Spring Rate?
Get king Coilovers for the front if you want to experience what a nice suspension will feel like. They're are expensive, but the high end stuff is really worth the money. Try to see if you can snatch a used set somewhere if you want to save some buckos. They come with 550lbs springs, so if you're not adding weight to the front, they'll offer a super plush ride anywhere you want to run them in or out of the road, if you add weight, your option is to increase spring rate, 600lbs is not really bad, I have 650lbs currently, and I wouldn't want to run anything lighter, but I do have more weight than stock everywhere.
According to the OME 2013 PDF guide, the stock spring rate for the FJ in the front is 500lbs.
