    I just installed a 3" Toytec Lift and according to my measurements, I obtained 4.5'' of Lift From It? I'm Not Sure If It Is Because It's a Regular Cab Or What, But It Rides Perfect and My CV Angles look Good, So I'm Not Worried About It. I Was Wondering If This Is Common With A Toytec Lift.:cool:

    lets see those CV angles. Also just adjust the preload to get the desired height

    Is it the Coilover kit or is it just the 3" Spacer?

    Lifts take some time to settle in...I'd give it some time.

    I Can't Adjust Them. It Is an Old Man Emu Coil With A Top Plate Spacer. I Did Use The 1" diff. drop and My CV Boots Look Pretty Decent. It Can't Hurt Anything Else Can It?

    Yup, I measured From The Ground To The Bottom Of My Flare Through The Center Of My Hub. My Tires Are Only 265-70-16 In a BFG AT. They are only about 3/4 Of An Inch Bigger Than Stock.

    I Have Drove The Truck About 60 Miles So Far And It Did Settle a little bit. I Want It Settled In Before I Get An Alignment. Who Knows, Maybe It will Settle More.

    Which OME coils did you use? How big is the spacer?

    Im Pretty Sure The Coils Are 884s. Thats What I was Told To Get For A Regular Cab. My Top Plate Spacer Is The 3/4" That Came With The Lift Kit.

    Take that spacer off. ANything over 3" lift, and you have a good chance of busting your CV's.

    Even With The 1" Diff. Drop? Like I Said, My CV Angles Are Pretty Good.:confused:
    What Would Make It Settle More, If Anything?

    That 1" "Diff Drop" only drops the front of the diff 1". The point of the axels is only changed by about 2* or so. So...In a nut shell, Yes.

    I'm 100% On The Tire & Rim Size. I'm Not Sure Why They Look So Big In The Picture. I Agree That They Look more Like 17s.
