Do you have a link to the lift? Are you talking about the adjustable toytec coilovers?

This is the best way to get an accurate measurement. ^
Drive around the block to settle the suspension, park on level ground, and measure straight up from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender.

I think OP was referring to the shock setting

This is how I interpreted it as well.

I don't know which lift kit you are talking about, but I assume it is the adjustable kit with the 5100's and if so, click here for some instructions that another member posted up.

Hope that helps.

To minimize the lift you get? I guess I don't understand your question?

Some may use the .85" setting to level their stock truck front to rear.

I love the lift. It is what I expected for the price. The ride is firmer than stock but not harsh, and it greatly reduced brake diving and body roll through turns.

It took me 4 hours to complete, including taking the shocks to a shop to swap the springs. I changed my UCA's while I waited for the shocks.

and the 1/4" spacer on the passenger side.

My fender to hub is 23"
I have that setup. It works well for me. I'm slightly under 23 inches with my winch.

Yes if you want the truck to drive well with a 3" lift, especially on the highway. I notice a lot of people say that their alignment is fine with stock UCA's on a 3" lift. I don't believe them. I think they just "tolerate" the driving characteristics. If you install new UCA's, I highly doubt you will regret it. Light Racing makes the most affordable/adjustable UCA's, that is what I use and I am very pleased with them.
