Here at Red Line Land Cruisers, we simply love 40-Series Land Cruisers! We’ve built them mild to wild and have tried all sorts and types of spring and shackle combinations over the years in pursuit of ride quality, “crawl-ability,” U-joint and driveshaft longevity, all with the best possible steering geometry! That is a stacked order for what most people feel is a simple suspension lift.
Maybe you read our blog post: SUSPENSION LIFT WITHOUT AXLE SUCK ON YOUR FJ40 TOYOTA LAND CRUISER! FASHION OR FUNCTION?
Simply put, most FJ40 Lift Kits available on the market are “over-sprung!”
Why? The Toyota Land Cruiser itself was designed to withstand a “working” life. It is a 4X4 vehicle design and built for the rigors of rugged work, on the farm, jungle, woods or deserts across the globe! It is a heavy duty vehicle and most spring packs are designed for heavy duty use! When Red Line Land Cruisers began back in 2007, the small Colorado Springs company started with building wild FJ40 “rock crawlers” “rock rods” yet, these vehicles where street-going machines.
A lot has changed over the years in pursuit of Toyota Land Cruisers from it’s work vehicle origins to weekend play machine! The Red Line team desired a softer solution and after years of “trail-trial-and-error” usage, we’ve arrived at what we feel is the best leaf spring – shackle – shock combination to provide a 2.5″ suspension lift for non-overlanding “heavy loaded” FJ40 / 40-Series Land Cruisers.
In our humble opinion, you won’t find a better FJ40 Lift Kit, more suited for our type of 40-Series enjoyment! Our FJ40 Lift Kit has been field tested and approved by some of the pickiest, snobbiest, most passionate FJ guys out there…
and they all give the Red Line Ultimate Lift Kit – 5X ⭐️👍’s!
