Re: 1" rear lift springs?

To my knowledge, most kits are designed to level the FJ. What will it be used for if you don't mind me asking?

1" rear lift springs?

I have 2" lift springs now with 285s and feel like I need 305s to fill in the wheel well better orrrrr I could just lower the rear 1" and still use the boss 2.0 rear shocks according to Toytec the shocks are for 1-3" of lift.

Sway-A-Way Rear 1.5" Lift Coils

This is all I've seen, not to say there isn't a 1" coil lift out there though. 4th gen 4runners take the same springs so maybe you can expand your search to there?

Call Deaver spring and ask for Scott. They can custom make you a set of progressive coil springs. I ordered a set of 1.5" progressive coils to match the length of my Fox 2.5 Factory Series DSC shocks.

I'd be interested to know as well. I have the SAW 1.5" springs in the rear and they are a tad bit too tall for my taste. I actually e-mailed ToyTec a while back and asked if they had anything a bit shorter and they said the SAWs are about as low as it gets.

Did you get exactly 1.5"? I'm contemplating going back to stock height in the rear until I get bigger tires. My 285s now are only 32" tall.

I've given a lot of thought about going back to stock rear springs. I have 285/75R16 Duratracs and the front looks perfect (SAW coilovers on lowest setting) but the back has always looked a bit wonky. Stock might be a bit too low but, a 0.75" lift spring would be amazing.
