Will my toytec coilovers settle?

I have just ordered some toytec coilovers. I have a 4cyl so im guessing its because of the engine weight difference is why i got way more than 2.5"s of lift out of them when i installed them. I got 4.5"s of lift at first. I then adjusted them. Right now im at about 3.5"s of lift. I left them at 3.5 because i figured they would settle a little. My question is will the settle? and about how much?

They will settle but how much depends on the alignment of the stars. I think everyone is a little different.

question. these measurements you speak of, are they a 'before and after' measurements?

If they were, you have to realize that you probably had some front-end sagging prior to installation. Even tho you got 4.5 inches over what your suspension was sitting out, doesn't mean you got 4.5 inches of lift over stock. See the difference?

The springs do settle some, but not a ton.

What lifting option do you have in the back?

Do you have a side profile photo of the truck with the kit on?

Mine did but not a lot. Nothing you can't fix with a slight adjustment.

I realize what you are saying. This is from before and after measurements. But i also measured from the center of the hub and that was 24.5"s. I believe before lift it is about 20"s. If some one with stock suspension can verify that would be great. i adjusted them a little and now they are at 23.5"s from the center of hub to the fender. I believe I am at about 3.5"s of lift now. And i dont think i had that much sagging. My truck is a 2007 regular cab with 30,000k on it.
And ill make sure to get some pictures of the side of the truck on level ground by tomorrow. Thanks for the help, Mike

see how level it is?
your probably sitting at exactly 3 inches of lift up front.

To level the front with the back, you need just 3 inches up front.

If the front was raked high, then you would be more likely at 3.5 or 4.

I think so.
there is no way the AAL can give you more than 2 inches of lift so, yeah, I think your fine.
