Any body know the specs on FJ40 leaf springs

I was curious of the specs on an Fj40 stock leaf spring. Length , width and how many leaves in the spring pack. Length would mean from spring eye to center pin to spring eye. Front and rear if possible.

All free of charge

If I may quote a fellow cruiser:
"this have been a public service announcement"


Dustin,
Did my spring pics help?

Send a message via AIM to Panzer
That reference only answers 1/2 the question.
The distance spring eye to center pin to spring eye is still out there.

I got mine off my other rig today for my SOA. Front spring measurements only though.

My springs, with some arch in them:
Measurments not taking the arc into consideration:
* center of eye to center of eye- 42"
* height from top of military wrap to bottom of spring- 8"
* length from military wrap to center pin- 19"
* pin to the other end- 23"

Total length of spring measurments (if the springs were flat)
* center of eye to center of eye- ~44"
* length from military wrap to center pin- 20"
* pin to the other end- 23.75"
