FJ60 SPOA kit?

I have been looking into buying an FJ60. It seems that most people just do a SPOA lift and 35" tires and so on. My question is, is there a kit somewhere for a SPOA that I can buy? What companies make make the best parts? Would you also do a shackle reversal? Someone point me in the right direction. I do not have the fabrication skills to make my own perches and plates etc, but I can bolt on a kit or weld it together as long as I have all the pieces. The type of wheeling I will be doing will be trails and rocks. Rubicon, Hollister and other difficult trails in the Sierras. Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Post some pics of your rig as well because I am looking for ideas.

I can supply the Cut/turn front housing, the perches, shock mounts, spring plates, knuckle rebuild kit, etc.

do you make the parts yourself or do you own a business. What would your recommend I do to fit the 36" Iroks. SOA and shackle reversal? How much lift will I need?

To fit the 36" tires. A basic SOA with stock springs will get you 35's easy enough. Add an aftermarket or rearched spring and 36-37's are cake. As for the shackle reversal, I have done numerous of each... Ford versus Chevy debate there. Each have their pro's and con's.

thats a sweet 60. What leafs would you recommend using. Also, has anyone ever done a 63" chevy spring swap for the rear? Many people are doing this on 4runners with great success.

I'm looking at 60 suspension ideas so I thought I would bring back my old thread. What other spring options are there? Is the stock springs recommended for SPOA or what? Does anybody have any pics of bobbed fj60's. i have seen a coupld but I am looking into doing that and need more ideas. Thanks.

So did you buy the 60?
Do a search on the bobbing a 60 or under my name there are lots. Bobbing a 60 is a fair amount of work but for a trail 60 well worth it and not hard just a lot of time.

i haven't bought the 60 yet. there is one down the street from me that i can get for 2 grand. New paint, 167,000 miles, very very clean. Grandma owned. Is this a good deal? I've seen ur bobbed cruiser and its sweet. A little more extreme than what i was looking for but cool none the less.

If it's in all in good shape, IMHO that's an excellent deal.

Most people just use stock springs. The packs will benifit from an add a leaf or a long junkyard leaf. They tend to flatten or invert over time, but not as bad as say a CJ on stock springs soa. If you want to go bling, then get an Old Man Emu springs, have them de-arched and use those. Or don't get them re-arched and go big!

If you visit www.ih8mud.com and go to the FJ60 board, do a search as there are a few threads with lots of pics of bobbed 60's.

Thanks alot for those links. I really like that white bobbed one, it looks . I have no idea what I am going to do about the fj60 for sale. It is really really nice and clean but I have a suzuki samurai built up and in my garage, I would need to sell that first to fund my next project. What should I do??

Mine is riding on stock leaf springs/axles. Can post up some pics if needed...don't have any online yet. Ride is very nice. Why you calling it junk Mike? Been pulling slivers out of my hands all night....
