Best option is just going to a SOA setup. It will net you arround 5" of lift, and even with stock springs will flex excellent. I know OME makes a lift for them, but i think its only arround 2".

I know there are a few others out there, but i will have to dig them up.

There are several lifts avail. Check the above link, and check the vendors listed in the Landcruiser section.

Also, check out Steve's FJ62:

SOA can be costly, but worth it from what I have heard. However, check out...

Depending on your expertise, SOA is the way to go.

SOA will get you around 6" and allow you to fit bigger tyres (37's easily) which helps with your under-diff clearance as well as other things.

If your truck is straight, it will look awesome too!

Have a look at mine

Hey guys,

This is a little off topic so sorry to hijack the thread. Where can I find differential ID info for the FJ60? I am probably going ot buy one soon and would like to know what kind of axles I have. I know of the sites for trucks, tacomas and 4Runners but don't know where I can get info on land cruisers.

Thanks in advance!

They have a separate section for each type cruiser

FJ60 uses the same diff size as FJ40, but are 3.73 gears. FJ62 went back to 4.11 gears

So i just checked it out and those are just shackles. Is there a way to put the axle on the bottom of the leaf springs? What would be a cheaper simple lift? I looked at the hell for stout website and it really didnt have what i,was looking for.
