Just watched the All Pro FJ Cruiser Challenge video and saw the Bellydoc. Got the video with my new leaf springs for the 4Runner.
Any suggestions on best process of replacing front leaf springs on a solid axle 4runner?

When i did mine i put the high lift on my slider and lifted it from there. Undo your 4 nuts on your u bolts, then lift that side of the runner. Then you only have the 2 bolts that hold on the springs. Liberally grease the shackle bolts when you put them back in same with the bushings, you cant use too much grease ( i like to use marine grease). Lower the runner back down so the pin in the middle of the spring goes into the hole on spring perch. Tighten your u bolts and repeat for the other side. Tighten the crap out of your u bolts (i torque mine to 150 to 200 ft lbs). Recheck your torque after 250 miles. I have to work or i would come down. Its easy a little scary when you lift the runner that high but get used to it and the high lift and be safe.
