FJ40 front springs what to use?

Postby jsobey » Mon Oct 24, 2016 6:38 pm

so my fj bush truck has had a slip slop slap of a coil over axle set up on the front.
over the years the springs as sagged.

im going to chop them out and replacing them.


what springs have people used?
what could be a good option to use?

i have been thinking of using safari standard springs as they arent to badly priced but not sure about weight on them, sag and what not.

if your going to pull the coilovers out and go to standard coil springs you can pretty much use whatever you want and weld the new mounts onto the chassis at the point that gives you the desired ride height your wanting

Hi Guys,
Been a long while since I last visited...
I’m wanting to put some longer leaf springs in the rear of my 1975 FJ40 to move the shackles angle back rather than verticle. I recall there was a Falcon spring mod that had the same 15mm ID bushing size. Does anyone remember what model and year falcon spring I need to look for? Or have a better suggestion? Thanks
