    Soon sir, Very soon, Once I am back to my baleela, i will get them all rigged up. I have them installed with 2" spacers, but they are too close to the rear wheel wells. Need to get the Leafsprings springed up

    This is how they are looking like currently. Suggesstions to fix the rear wheel well space issue?

    What I have been suggested to Far:
    Bro @akifjanjua suggessted to get the Leaf Springs re-worked, that should fix the sagging in the back.

    With Bro @tareen I am also discussing SOA option and taking his guidance.

    A friend suggessted to add body spacers to have a lift of the body on the frame, this could help in getting more space in wheel well.

    One more thing I noted is that the tyres are now not in the center of the wheel well, the rear has moved forward and the front have moved forward as well. I think this is due to the 6" shackles I installed. Any issues here ???

    Your thoughts and expertise is requested please?

    Very nice tyres and wheels. Just for my knowledge, if you raise the one end of the leaf springs, shouldn't there be a corresponding raise at the other (inner) end of the spring as well? For example, if there is an increase of 4 inches on the outer ends should there be increase of 2 inches on the inner ends or may be equal amount of raise? And also what about the overall stability of the vehicle? Is everything will be countered by big wheels/tyres?

    Thanks Adil,

    Logically you are correct, the other end of teh leaf springs should also be extended, but when i talked to friends they say it wont make much of a difference.

    So far I am struggling with tires rubbing the wells at the back end of the rig on turning as there is very little space there, and i have come to KHI so the process is halted currently. Once i am back i need to get the spring leaf raised to manage the sag at the rear end.

    On the tarmac, the ride has actually improved with softer tires and the road noise has increased (very enjoyable), but all in all the stability so far is good. I did some off roading with the shackles in front and rear with steelies and ndcc tires, they worked quiet well and without any stability issues.

    I want to get the leaf springs TARred up so that i can see where we stand, then if needed, i may extend the other side of the shackles and maybe need to move the brackets as well. Lets see what the Kamani expert suggests.

    @sam - to fit 35s you need to cut / shave the rear fender to avoid rubbing, even if you have put in longer shackles. There is not other way to avoid rubbing.

    Brother @machine is very right. I'm just adding a little cosmetics here...

    The forward side of the rear fender can be trimmed from 1-1.5" & backward side can go twice of that size.

    Point taken Sir, would i need to add extended fenders to cover the wells, I saw a few out there. Also does the well needs to be trimmed symetrically ? as you are suggesting that trim more on the back end, then front, in this case, would it look odd ?

    Extended fender will only be required if the tread (not just the sidewall bulge) shows when seen from top with sight aligned to the body wall. Just the sidewall showing out of the fender gives a very solid look. Mud will splatter all over no matter how big the fender flares are ;-)

    Something appropriate in size would look great for sure.

    My New Ride  TLCFJ40 -1162086

    For the trimming of fender in different widths, its is required to accommodate the travel direction of the tire once laden or during articulation i.e. UP & BACK. Original tires travel within the wheel-well but as this one will be in line with the fender sheet, it needs to accommodate the travel.

    The most well-researched FJs (ICONs) get the same treatment to accommodate bigger tires as u must have noticed...
