Which Rear Springs should I get?

I was thinking about replacing my rear springs. The ones I have on there are toast.

I have been running FJ-60 rear springs because they are a little longer, and I flip the from fron to rear to possition the axle a little further back. I was thinking about ordering the same springs with about 2.5 inches of lift.

Remember, I have an FJ-40 with sprung under portals. I would consider going Coil overs if you know anybody that has some for sale cheap!

Oh, I do get a lot of axle wrap. I have a ladder bar in there now, but would love to hear some good spring options, or suspention designs.


Sorry for not being real specific, and somewhat unclear...it's early for me!

Air Shocks...I think I had heard something about them a while back, but I don't remember any specifics...Anybody running them? What is the advantage, disadvantage to them (besides price). I am assuming that I would set it up as a link system...as if I was going to run coil overs...is this correct so far?

Home brew...I will check out your link. Thanks.

Stock they are around 4,300 LBS, right?

I would say my fenders are the same weight, but my cage adds some, axles add some, and the 350 should be less than the stock 6. Hummer rims....and all the little extra metal on there...I would imagine close to 5,000 lbs???? What do you think?
