Need help

I bought the toytec lift and need to know how far to turn the adjuster up inorder to get 3" of lift. I also have a half inch top plate and was wondering if I should bother using them or just go with the coilovers. Thanks for any help

Just use the coilovers and leave the top plate spacers out. There isn't a exact adjustment for 3 inchs of lift on the coilover since every vehicle will have a slightly different weight which will affect the lift height. They are preset to ~2.5 inches of lift. The only accurate way to ensure you get 3 inches of lift is to measure the height of the truck before you install the lift and compare it to the measurement after you install.

Thanks for the reply Dylan. When you preset them for 2.5" how much thread is showing on the bottom. That will give me a starting point.
