Ya I will play with the amount of front lift when everything is back on the ground. I personally don't mind a little rake and with the rear leaves that I bought it will be raked somewhat when the bed is unloaded regardless. I have a small truck camper so I need the extra capacity of the Expo's.
Having a couple new problems though. Allpro
didin't give me the metal sleeves that go between the poly bushings and the bolts for the leaf packs. Calling them monday morning but will be waiting a while so I cut some DOM tubing(1/2" inside, 3/4" outside and made some sleeves for a temporary fix, just have to go pick up some 1/2"x5" grade 8 bolts tomorrow.
And now just came inside to look at pics of the Toytec
Ulimate coilovers online to see have they should really look. I was just adjusting the final height after installing the passenger side only to realize that somehow whoever assembled these things at Toytec set them up wrong. From what I can tell the coilover on the drivers side is right but on the one I put on the passenger side set wrong with respect to the spring cup clip position on the Bilstein shock. On the drivers side one I can see 2 of the spring clip grooves above the threaded collar and very little shock body out the bottom. Whereas on the passenger side one I can see almost the entire Bilstein sticker on the bottem of the shock body and no spring clip grooves on the top.
So now because Allpro didn't include those sleeves I have to go buy 4 grade 8 bolts and spend time making new sleeves and then re-do it all when I get the proper stuff. And because Toytec set up my one coil wrong I have to uninstall it and take it to someone with a proper spring compressor and pay them to take ot apart and fix it. FML, I wanted this all done today.
I guess instead of just bitching I should ask a question. I have the threaded collar on the coilover on the drivers side dialed all the way down to the bottom and still have a full 3.5" of lift. I actually have suspension flex now, there was none when i started cause it was so stiff with all the pre-load. I know the passenger side one is set wrong and I assume the drivers side is right but still have lots of lift with no more agjustment. Can someone that has these Ulimate coilovers take a look at theirs and tell me how many of those spring cup clip position grooves can you see above your threaded collar? I know there are 4 in total and I assume these are set on the lowest one. I can see 2 sticking out the top and if someone else can see 3 then maybe evne that one is set up wrong and on the second one from the bottom and that is why so much lift with no more adjustment. Wouldn't even have occured for me to ask if my other one wasn't set on the top one.
