OME springs and Toytec spacers. I noticed that one front spring was taller than the other. Based on how close to level my FJ was, I put the tall spring on the passenger side and the extra spacer on the driver side.

Before lift: DF 34.5, PF 34.75", DR 36.25", PR 36.5"
Week after: DF 38 3/8", PF 38 3/8", Dr 38 7/8", 38 7/8"

Just ordered AllPro front bumper. I'm stoked for sure.

Looks nice,
not sure about a taller spring, that seems odd but you did put the spacer on the correct side. the truck has a lean to it with the driver and fuel tank on the same side so they compensate that with the trim spacer.

So is that with the OEM/ Bilstein shocks? I am thinking of doing the same thing with my TT... any advantage or disadvantage to using the Bilstein's?
Yes. The Bilsteins work great with OMEs.

If you think you need the extra travel of the Toytec rear springs you will need to replace the rear shocks. Going with all OME/Bilstein allowed me to get a new bumper.

I got the same lift and you will still lean to the driver side a bit.
Only had .25" lean before the lift. Spacer is good for .5". This is why I put the taller spring on the passenger side. It's very level now. If things change I can always switch those springs. I put the taller rear on the driver side. The rears were much closer in size.

Looks great. Are you getting new shoes? If so, what will you run?

Plan was to get lift and bigger tires. The stock tires don't look as small as I thought they would, so I've ordered a bumper and winch instead of tires. Selling parts I took off the Mustang I traded has payed for the mods so far, which keeps thing cool with the wife. I will go to BFG MT2s or just bigger ATs down the road.

I'm getting ready to lift my FJ and I really like your set up.

One thing I am really sensitive to is the ride - I've got various arthitic ailments and replaced parts (I'm worth more in scrap value than I am alive) and don't want to make my FJ ride any rougher than stock. How does your set up ride compared to the stock ride?

Also, can you give me the details of your lift so I can purchase the same parts? Do you have part numbers or other descriptors? Where did you buy it?

Thank you!
