Couple questions if anyone can help.
I installed my OME-90004 front shocks in my 881 coils this morning and afterwards noticed I may have gained some lift. I'm 40 in on the drivers side and 41 on the passenger side. I'm not running flares so this is a true measurement from the ground up to the center of the axel and up to the fender. (285/75/16 tires)
Keep in mind I have been running the stock tokico shocks since the day I drove it off the lot in 2002 with 90k on them now.
I certainly dont recall it being that tall before. I thought it was like 37.5 and 38 1/4 before. It's actually more level it seems like now because my rear springs will need replaced soon and I think the measurements are pretty close to 39in on both sides.
PLacebo effect on the front or did I somehow gain a small amount by ditching the 90k tokicos?
The lower shock mount bolts in the front.
I put them in backwards. The nut is now on the back side. Does it matter?
I'm going to be installing my rear OME-60062 shocks in the morning. I thought I read somewhere that they were "side specific". However after talking with Ben at toytec he says no and furthermore claims he's never heard of a "side specific" toyota at different shock lengths except in non lifted applications.
Can anyone shed some light on this for me?
Also since I am needing rear springs, I would like to ditch the Toytec AAL and go with a specific leaf pack that is the equivalent to my 3in 881/90004 setup in the front. Suggestions?
Alcan? toytec? Expedition?
And I would assume since they would be a 3 in lift spring that my OME rear 60062 shocks will still fit/be suited for this application
Thx in advance!!
