    So I may be buying this truck and I will want to lift it.... but I'm wondering if anyone can identify the brand of this coil-over so I will know if it is adjustable enough for a 3" lift

    I thought the same about the pre-load, but I wasn't sure. So is it toast? The truck is an 06 TRD Off-road with 57k miles, 4x4, dbl cab 6 spd manual, and he wants 19.5

    they are old coil overs, most likely been only since he bought it.

    They will need a rebuild and most likely new springs. its all easy to replace.. if everything else is good go for it.

    The orig owner says he had 4 wheel parts put them on shortly after he bought it, so you are correct. I just wasn't sure what brand it was.

    Cool. I was thinking of just getting the procomp 3" kit with the coil overs and AAL's... It seems like a lot of you guys have that set up and like it. I'd prefer to go 6", but ya gotta pay to play haha

    I have those same coil overs in my truck SAW 2.0's. Just get them rebuilt and if you want to reduce the preload some new springs and you will have a great front setup.
