I have a fairly easy question, in all my years of owning cars/trucks, I have never upgraded my vehicles with any accessories until I bought my FJ. I added the roof rack, brushguard, brushguard driving lights, stainless steel step bars, & the exhaust tip. This is my question, I would like to raise the rear a little higher, I always like the way a SUV looks when the rear is higher then the front (example: my 2003 Dodge Durango). With that said, what options are available to raise the rear? What would the costs be on parts and labor?
Thanks,
Charlie

usually people would put a lift in the front as well as in the rear, but if you just want the rear lifted you can get some aftermarket OME springs.

Well the rear coils may cost a few hundred dollars, but labor shouldn't anything if you do it your self.:bigthumb:

Very easy really - if you let it be...

Search the Suspension Tech Forum for rear spring upgrades, there are many, and should very easily accomplish what you want to do.

Word of warning though: Doing a rear spring swap will only lead to rear shocks and new front coilovers to finish the job and do it right. Just bite the bullet and do it all...

Rear springs will cost about a $140.00 a pair and there is not a whole lot of labor is involved if you don't want to do it yourself, shop should be able to do it for you for a reasonable amount.

Go to the Toytec website and look at the rear lift stuff, there you will find what you need, instructions and all.
