Front Shackle Reversal-bolt on kit

After listening to all the interest in regard to a front Spring Shackle Reversal (SSR) for FSJ's, I took the time to developed a bolt on kit. First, the kit replaces the front shackle with a fixed 41/2" spring mount and relocates the shackle to the rear of the spring. The additional height of the mount corrects the caster of the front axle and provides 2" of suspension lift. Second, it is 100% bolt in, no welding is required. All that's needed is basic tools to cut out the old front brackets, drive out the old rivets and bolt in the new brackets. Lastly, you can purchase rear lift blocks to level your vehicle (I have those also) to mount larger tires and experience a softer ride. You can see these and other items at http://stores.ebay.com/RockLaurence-...p2047675.l2563
This picture shows the SSR and the optional front receiver hitch.




Rear Lift Blocks and U-bolts with FSSR $259

I just posted the rear lift blocks along with U-bolts. Now, you can have an affordable lift kit for $259 that doesn't require new shocks, drive shaft modifications (in most cases) or rides like a Covered Wagon from the cowboy days You can save on buying the FSSR, front receiver and rear lift blocks as a complete kit. PM on what you want.

Tires are 32" on 17 inch Hummer II wheels and the spring pack has 1 Ford Explorer leaf for 1" of lift. Also, note that it has a 2" body lift for a total of approximately 5" of lift. I want to step up to 35's soon.

Ive been waiting for something like this, but I already have 4" springs. Have you installed it with such yet?

I have 1" lift shackles already, so I would be getting approx 1.5" more lift, I would think. Maybe remove a spring to get it down a little?

You'd gain approx' 2" of lift from the kit. Taking a leaf or two from the pac' would lower the vehicle and possibly improve (soften) the ride--both on and off road.

No, the earliest FSJ had a post type mount for the springs. They will fit from '74 on.

In regard to the install and other changes, no other changes are required for normal driving. The original shocks etc will limit wheel travel preventing issues with steering clearance and the front drive shaft. However, to maximize the potential of the FSSR you can add longer shocks and dropped bump-stops. Which allows the front axle to droop more and will require a longer splined front drive shaft and extended brake lines. The FSSR is intended to provide a moderate lift with greater ride comfort but is also the beginning of a PERFORMANCE suspension. Lastly, you will need Red thread locker, cut off tools, 1.25" hole saw, drill and other tools for the install.

RockLaurence VAP has sold 16 FSSR kits and now has customers in Germany and Brazil!
