    Just wondering if anyone knows off hand the stock fender height of a Double cab PreRunner non-TRD.

    Yesterday(with a lot help from TacomaWorld :cheers: ) I added a set of 5100's set to 1.75 and a 2in AAL. However my truck seems like its sitting a lot higher than 1.75-2 inches higher than stock. I completely forgot to take a measurement before hand, but now I'm sitting at ~40inches front and rear with 265-70/16's.

    I'll be able to post some pics in the morning.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yup! IIRC, Thats full droop. Me thinks the 5100's are set wrong, and with the spring seat upside down.

    Yes , this is a more accurate measurement of lift amount , what is the measurement from the centre of your hub to underside of the fender OP ?

    I just did 5100's at 2.5 w/ stock coils and a toytec 2" AAL. I'm at 38.5 front and 40.5 rear as measured from ground to fender. Didn't seem right to me, but the perches are right side up and everything is spot on.

    I just measured the center hub to fender at ~25inches. And I have the perch set at 3rd notch from the bottom. And I'm running stock springs.

    Looks like I got my perches upside down. Guess Its back under the truck this weekend :-(

    But on a side note, My 2 inch AAL is adding way too much lift. Gonna have to sort that one out too.

    Front measure should be at around 22" with the billies @ 1.75"

    Here are a few pics of the mess I have made lol. It surprisingly doesn't ride too bad they way it sits. But now that I've seen it this tall I don't wanna go back. Time to look into a 3in lift.

    Yep you have the spring seat upside down. the bottom rest of the spring (black) is flipped upside down, adding A LOT of preload to your springs. Not a good UCA angle....

    Looks like the coil is actually bending sideways

    You might want to consider spindles if you like that height OP

    Those things are going to blow apart the first time you hit a speed bump.
