    The max length we recommend is 21" eye to eye. Any further and you will compromise ride quality due to the shock topping out. Those coilover specs show 22.520" at full extension. A longer spring wont help, since the length/height of the coilover is already maxed.
    Is the Truck a TRD?

    2018 double cab trd offroad 4x4

    This is where confusion sets in when other say they can yield 23" hub to fender with this coilover on a mostly stock truck.

    I haven't measured, but when I jack up truck there is plenty of droop. I'm not bottoming out, even with driver coil cranked down another 4 turns, it rides great even with wacky alignment.

    I'm hoping to make alignment adjustments tomorrow night. I will report back if my measurements change.
    Thanks!

    The new discount code is wishlist1000 for $1000 off of purchase over $3500. Not as good as the one i had but something to think about.

    Thanks for sharing! What kind of discount were you getting with the expired code? This site seems to offer some really good deals. What's the catch?

    Exactly as stated.
    I was able to get the front 2.5 resi's with adjusters and the rear 2.0 resi's with adjusters for less than $2000 shipped to my door... Fantastic deal.

    Cheers

    Max droop with the truck on a jack is not representative of actual droop available when the wheels are planted and the truck is moving. It’s close, but there is no way that your front end can get that much travel with both wheels on the ground for many reasons, the primary reasons being friction between the tires and the road, and lack rebound force (bump) available in your springs.

    I'm about to have a friend swap over 14'' 650 springs over onto Fox 2.5 dsc....any rule of thumb on the measurement to get a 2 - 2.25in lift? Contacted Fox, but haven't heard back in a few days.

    I didn't link anything. That's part of the TW algorithm with Amazon and it's not. The picture is not correct. The adjustable is indicated by a -06- in the middle of the part #.

    I ended up fully closed on HS and 1 click from full open on LS for now. The extra caster I added to clear the 275 really has a negative effect on everything.

    I did the CMC last week and am having the truck realigned on Saturday.

    Also picking up a spring compressor tomorrow to mount in my shop so I can experiment with different spring rates.

    That’s what I run when I’m away from home. The streets here are terrible and full of potholes and raised edges from salt and snow plows. If I don’t have the HS dialed all the way up it is a miserable ride.

    I tried that too. Adding just a few clicks low speed makes the ride suck because then the small bumps are harsh also.
