Trying to see if I'd be nice and level on my '96 or what it will look like. I am about to place the order from DSMS and wondering if I should keep them at 0 or set to 1". Thanks!

I believe the available settings are zero, 1.25, and 2.5.

Are you going to run the OEM coils? Or are you getting aftermarket coils, too?

No, don't have pics. I am zero with mine, and running 881s.

And BTW, don't listen to anything 4WD says. He's running some crazy-ass Tundra Billies that have 5 settings...and they are working great for him...

The pic here shows "1 inch of average lift" in the middle setting for the 1st gen app -

Man, that pic must be new, I don't remember that when I was trying to figure this out, and that's exactly what I was looking for!

I guess the key term is "average." When I asked Dan at Wheeler's he said approx. 1.25 with the Xtra cab V6, and I think I since saw that repeated somewhere else, but I can't recall where exactly. Besides engine and cab types (and winch bumpers, etc.), I guess another factor could be the condition of your coils. If they are sagging more, less lift.

So were you looking at new coils, too?

No new coils. I'm measuring 35.25" from the ground to the bottom of the fender well, I think this is about average for my setup. I only want to level out my truck without messing with the rear leafs.
