Toytec Ultimate Lift Kit (ULK) Measurements

Hey guys,

I have a quick question or two:

I recently installed a Toytec ULK and add-a-leaf to a 2013, 4wd (TRD OR), double cab, short bed. However, I forgot to take measurements before I got started. I am wondering what the measurements from hub to center is for a stock truck like mine, and what the measurements should be after the lift is installed. I adjusted the front to be similar to the rear measurements, but feel like I may have raised it too far (collar is approximately in the middle of threads) because the ride seems very stiff. Example: when going over a speed bump slowly the front suspension seems to really slam hard on the other side. Any help would be appreciated. I installed the shims in the rear, sway bar relocator, and differential drop. I searched the forum for measurements and found some results, but kind of wanted to explain my whole situation.

Thanks,
Joe

Closer to 24" on the front and 25" on the rear. How's your ride?

Toytec ULK has an adjustable coil seat so the amount of lift would vary from person to person. That's the whole idea behind buying an adjustable coilover.

Yeah, I understand that Mike, but was wondering what the measurement would be for 3" of lift from stock, or what the stock ride height was. I did not measure my starting height.

I was at 24 when I first set them up, it had to much preload and was skipping along the road on the flats, but the bumps were OK. I set it down to 23.2 or so and it rides much better, no more skipping.
