I was wondering the same thing and found this on some random site


---------Front Spring---------Rear Spring
FJ-40--1070mm--42.13in----1070mm--42.13in
FJ-55--1071mm--42.17in----1155mm--45.47in
FJ-60--1058mm--41.65in----1160mm--45.67in

Not sure if those are correct or not. 40 springs have an offset center pin, but 55 and 60 springs are centered correct?
I already have my rear 40 springs flipped so would it be worth it to swap in 55 or 60 springs?
I also tried to find the length of xj springs because I know a few people use those but had no luck.

The 60 rear springs do not have centered pin, they are offset. The long end of the 60 spring is a little longer than the long end of the 40 spring. the rest of the added lenght is in the short end of the spring.

I wish I could help you out with some specs right now but I'm away from my cruiser. I won't see it until thanksgiving . Hopefully you'll get the correct info you need before then.

Also, be aware that the spring wraps and eyes are bigger than 40/55 series springs - different bushings and spring pins are necessary - you will need larger spring brackets on the frame.

Andy

PS: The military wrap is on the "short" side of the spring just like a 40 series.

what have you guys been doing for the spring pins with these 60 springs I think that the stock ones are 18mm and am having a hard time finding bolts for this i think i might have to use 5/8 bolts just cause i cant get what i need locally

i used 5/8' bolts on mine..

I used 60 springs on the rear of my 40. Flipped them.. I ended up 5" back from Stock..


they flex good, and are easier to source than the 55's

So using a 55 spring will give you about the same WB as a flipped 40 spring and a flipped 60 spring will give you an inch or two more than that?

Yup. The 60 springs are about the same lenght as 55 springs, just with an offset pin.
