Stock or not?

Alright so a couple of things was done to the truck before I got it so I am wondering if this is stock or not? drop, blocks etc. It seems to sit lower than a stock tacoma but I could be wrong.

Your leafs are on the bottom of the axel with a block. So yes, its lowered. Easy to fix. Just pull the leafs and put the back on top of the axle where it belongs. Unless you want a lowered truck.


Edit: unless that photo is upside down.

Edit x2. Im a idiot. Ignore this.

Nononononononono NO!!!!!!!!!!!!

The non-Prerunner 2wd is spring-under-axle.
This is the "5-Lug". You can't just "put the springs on top of the axle"

6-Lug Tacomas are all spring-over axle.

But no, the block is not stock... the truck was lowered.

Based on your pic, the back is lowered. It looks like about a 2" lowering block. Have any pics of the front?

Ditto on the front... I'm curious how it's treated.
The truck sits really nice, but it does seem the rear was lowered more than the front (which would be expected since they sit ass-high when stock).

I'm betting it's a 1.5-2" block on the rear and a 1" spacer drop on the front.

so wait, just to clarify, did you think the block was a stock feature? no lol. that is aftermarket. and that looks like a 2" block. unless they custom ordered a 1.5, its 2". you could probably get a 3" block, stiffer shocks, lo pro bump (if you dont already have) and probably some longer u bolts to get another inch of drop witout notching the frame. OR, get a 4wd leaf pack and pull out the middle leaf. which i believe gives you 3" of drop with a better ride than blocks. that would also need shorter shocks and a lo pro bump though. not sure what you have up front, but then again i dont know shit about 2nd gen front suspension.

the only struts for the front that are the stock bilstien XR struts.

you can use this with either a XII 1.75" drop spring, XII Stock Height XR springs or OEM XR Spring.

all the other struts are for lifted/stock applications
