Im still waiting on the Fab shop to cut my parts. :-? However, I have started the process to add a Rear Spring setup to the mix that will complement the front System. The goal will be to provide a Lift, Softer Ride and Performance to the rear of a FSJ. The questions that need answered are: How much Arch, How many Leaves, Sliders or Shackles... This process is So fun. :D

So, I have struggled and struggled to get the materials needed. First, I received the new Brackets and they were wrong-again. After several more weeks, I finally received a good set and Im now building the Gigs etc to assemble the Sliders. I expect to have the Sliders done this weekend along with Installation instructions. Second, I will assemble several kits and get them on the Website: Rocklaurence Vintage Auto Parts.com.

OK, this is the Universal Heavy Duty Slider Boxes that I have listed on my store. The one for the FSJs will be the same with the addition of a side plate to locate the brackets via the two lower transmission crossmember bolts. Ill be putting that together soon. https://rocklaurencevintageautoparts.co ... de-springs

Finally, I was able to get around to installing the new Slider boxes in place of the Proto-types. I'm very happy with them and the FSSR Long Spring suspension provides plenty of room for 35" tires-maybe 37"
