Hey everyone,

If someone could do this for me, I would be super grateful. If someone with a close to stock weight fj with the B springs that sits fairly level could measure how far from the bottom of the threads to the liking collar, that would be great.

This is just so I have a rough idea of how far to move them up.

Thanks,
Matt

My buddy has a spanner, so we'll see if it works. If not, I'll be ordering one off of Amazon. Just my 35s are going on Friday... lol
Thanks for your help!

I am going to actually have a shop adjust them next Wednesday. I don't know why mine are so stiff but I bent a spanner wrench trying to adjust them. If I could do it over, my feeling is I would get the A rear springs. Even though I hit the front bumpstops over big bumps these are way better than my Toytec lift.

Wow...
Mine moved without too much work when they were good and lubed up.
I'm very jealous of your 35's, lots of pics when you get them mounted.

Looks like I might be able to flip the Duratracs for a nice profit... If so, then I'll get the KO2s. Lol. It is tempting to go back to 33s. 35s just look so good.

When was the last time you actually kept a set of tires on your fj for more than a couple of months?

Hey, I ran the AT3s for 9 months! Decided I'll probably just keep the Duratracs. They just look better than the Ko2s.

Re: Ironman Foamcell Pro Suspension

Good choice. Now, back on topic:
Has anyone combined FCP fronts with the MT long travel rear setup? Is there any advantage/disadvantages to doing this?

I had one customer do that exact setup and loved it.
