Help with 98' Yota

I just bought this 98, any ideas if this has any lift or why the ass end is sticking up so high?http://i1123.photobucket.com/albums/...o/DSCN2040.jpg

The second pic shows the underside. Looks stock to me I guess I just need to figure out what the next step is. Looks like I will just replace suspension all the way around.

Are the shackles stock? Looks like the springs have been re-arched to me.

Stock shackles.

1. Either you have major spring sag up front(looks like it) and re-arched rear springs
2. Or those are air shocks in the rear but I didnt see any air npts

truck 4500, parts cart at various outfitters is going up faster than the stock market is down, so much for just hauling trash in it , wifee not so happy but You gotta love a toyota ,regret selling my first 98 in 01

so the overload spring is on bottom but usually flipped the other way?

Just talked to the previous owner , he did flip that leaf over to pull a welder. Well guess I'll undo that first and go ahead and change shocks while i'm at it

We have a winner !!!! Yep that monster overload has been flipped, it must ride like shit...........those OL's are just too thick to "give" any kind of decent ride, but will give you a def. lift in the rear.. the upside of it though is yhat fucker will NEVER sag....

Can't say for sure about the front need better view but with that overload flipped that alone results in about a 3" lift for the rear (maybe even a little more) so its going to be hard to evaluate, but if it drives straight & doesn't feel like a pile of mush driving thru a corner then you might be alright for the time being, there again if you have the $$$$ I'd opt for new susp. ( shocks/struts & coils for the front )

thought maybe i would go with flipping the overload back over then going 5100's all the way around and removing the spacer. my duratracs 31x10.50 15's will be here tomorrow.
