Black Diamond Suspension Lift Kits - 1964-74 Toyota FJ-40 Landcruiser 4WD
The Landcruiser features solid axles front and rear suspended by leaf springs positioned below the axles. Black Diamond is world renown for Landcruiser and Jeep lift systems, and it's our leaf spring design that separates us from the herd. The 3" ‘Cruiser leafs feature the same "no compromise" design elements of our CJ leafs. Tapered leaf plates, anti-friction pads, and light spring rates combine to give you full suspension articulation and unbeatable ride quality. Also, double wrapped spring eyes (military wraps) enhance durability and safety.
Two design elements are specifically incorporated to reduce spring stress, which extends service life. First, the tension side of each leaf plate is shot-peened. Secondly, the springs feature a relatively flat seat (where the spring mates to the axle), so the spring pack is not "fighting" the clamping force generated by the U-bolts.
Black Diamond suspension products are specifically designed to perform in the most demanding off road conditions. We also take pride in our products' on road performance and ride characteristics. We ensure an extraordinarily high level of product quality by using computer-modeled lift system brackets and hardware that is first laser cut, then welded-out in CNC machined assembly fixtures. Black Diamond coil and leaf springs are designed with durability and drivability in mind. Most Black Diamond leaf springs feature double wrapped spring eyes (military wraps) and polyurethane eye bushings. Also, polyethylene anti-friction pads positioned between each leaf plate are standard on most applications. With a Black Diamond performance suspension you'll enjoy superior offroad articulation, and a comfortable ride in a suspension package that will last a lifetime... guaranteed.
