    Flip them around and your good. That top spacer should be flat up top so it can fit in.

    ok so I reinstalled it and got everything back together, but the weird thing is Im sitting at 5 inches of lift:eek: and spring coming contact with the UCA

    Should I take out the factory preload on the shock or is there something im missing completely. This is the correct shock for the truck right?

    i've seen coilovers cranked down a lot more that dont sit like that. did you measure that right after you took it off the jack? if so, it will sit a little high untile it settles, but i dont think it would sit THAT high. your cv's look like there sittin at a bad angle also.

    you would think, but no I actually drove around trying to get them to settle some. Ill take the preload out tonight, but I just dont know if they are the right coilovers. Ill call the guy I bought them from tomorrow.

    Were they hard to fit in? I would think that if they are that high they would have been a bitch to put in.

    Did the shocks come off a long traveled Toyota? They seem extended for a long travel setup.

    Something is DEFINITELY not right. Those CV angles are fucked.

    Start by double-checking the model # and make sure you have the right CO for your vehicle.

    I bought them from this guy

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...0642885624&ssPageName=ADME:X:eRTM:MOTORS:1123

    I met him in person he is 10 minutes away from my house.

    the part numbers on the ebay say 980-99-362-A/ 980-99-361-A



    I have no idea how to get the top collar loose, its so tight the spanner wrench i ordered is the wrong size and Ive broken 2 drill bits.

    EDIT: the truck was on jack stands when I tried to get it loose.

    Can you measure how much shaft is showing with the shock drooped out? If it measures 8" they are LT coilovers. Also I had fox coilovers once and they had a different top hat than those, but maybe it's different now. Do the springs have any numbers on them? Weird deal for sure.

    Im going to meet up with him tomorrow to figure it out, but i dont see how I could fit that in without grinding out the coilbucket a little bit
