Yes. I mean then were in my truck when I bought them and as far as I can tell they are. I don't think the suspension was messed with before I got it.

you said you drove it around in a parking lot. about how far? after lifting any truck with IFS off the ground the suspension will have to re-settle after. go over a few bumps and drive around a little more than in a parking lot...re-measure after...hopefully that helps

still seems high, but maybe it will settle some more. i now realize i should have probably just left my 885's and drove it around awhile before removing them. i just couldnt believe how high it was and that it would settle that much. what do you guys propose my next plan of attack is?
