I just put in The ICON Vehicle Dynamics Toyota FJ Cruiser / 4Runner Overland Series Rear Coil Spring Kit. I forgot that I added a 1 inch spacer to the top of the bump stop plate to get rid of ass drag. Now it seems much higher than before an was wondering if I should take that spacer out because the springs are heavy duty

Give it a few days to settle, and if it still looks too high for your taste, take out the spacers.

That's really tall. Are you sure you got the correct ones?

Any comments on getting a new Rear adjustable track bar??
If I am going to upgrade my suspension should I add one to my list?

What does an adjustable track bar buy you? (As in performance)

Adjustable track bars help to center the rear axle to the truck. Most people buy them because they lift their trucks higher than what an FJ is usually lifted. Putting one on an FJ is completely, in my opinion at least, optional. Mostly due to the fact that most people have a 1.5-2inch lift in the rear which only throws out the alignment slightly.

When you go over a bump on a lifted car it can sometimes pull to one side or the other. This is because the trackbar moves in a geometry that it wasn't intended for. Adjustable trackbar can help this or stop it completely if its dialed in correctly.

It's more of a decision of want over need to me. If you like things to be perfect and function as they ought to, go for it, but in my opinion, adjustable trackbars are more important for solid front axles than the rear since your control is fed from the front.
