I would assume they are the same as a 40, but I need to make sure before I order the other 500 bucks of my suspension.

FJ-55s take the same size pins, shackles, etc as a 40 correct?

I have a 76 FJ-55.

Plan on adding a 1" over stock shackle to allow more flex from my 4" alcans I ordered.

Sound about right?

Thanks!

sorry to break it to ya bro,....55 pins are bigger <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

but <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">.... if you are going with an aftermarket fj40 shackle, they will more than likely have 5/8 bolts (bigger than 40, smaller than 55). If they are 5/8, You can sleave the 5/8 bolts to fit exactly to the 18mm id 55 bushings. 1/2 thinwall EMT conduit is purrrrfect. the 5/8 is snug, and it fits snugly into the bushing.

I just picked up a full length, I will be more than happy to cut you a bunch of spacers and ship em to ya.

cool, what about greasable parts?

the conduit sleeve would prevent the grease from getting in there would it not?

Anyone have a line on where you can pick up 55 shackles, pins etc?

Thanks again!
