I did some height measurements of my 2012 Sport today...

    and the truck stance is one half inch higher than the 2010 SR5 I had.

    I assume this is the 17" sport alloys.

    also the rear stance is 1/2" higher than the post TSB measurements on my SR5.

    I assumed Toyota raised the front to compensate for the higher 4-leaf pack. maybe I'll put 5100's @.85 on the front after all to level the stance.

    and the "taco lean" is still there. about a 1/4".

    wat?
    regardless of the wheel size, the tire size is still pretty even and wouldnt account for any height difference. how many miles on the 2010 when you measured? possibly coil and spring break in for the difference?

    2010 was about one month old when I documented the measurements pre TSB and post TSB.

    this new sport is 1/2" all around higher than the post TSB measurements.

    I figure it was the wheel/tire that made the 1/2"

    2010 had 16" steelies w/ 245's
    2012 has 17" alloys w/ 265's

    bold makes no difference as that is the tire width. the next number is what matters as that tell you the percent of width that makes the sidewall height

    What were the measurements of the 2012? And where are you measuring from (center of hub or ground up)? I am trying to get an accurate gauge on my lift and I forget to pre measure my stock 2012 sport. Thanks.

    interesting

    so, the 17" sport Bridgestones actually have less side wall height then the 16" Dunlaps that were on my SR5? giving almost the same overall diameter fron hub/center?

    Larry, I set my billies at 1.75" on my 2012 and had the same type of lean until the suspension finally settled in. As of right now my difference is less than 1/8"...

    You may want to give it a few weeks/month depending on how much you drive it.

    RF = 20 - 1/2"

    LR = 22 -1/2"
    RR = 22 -1/2"

    I both measuring from the ground or the hub...the the truck sits 1/2" higher than my 2010 did.

    I even have dimensions from the ground to the body (cab) pinch welds...again, 1/2" higher on the 2012.

    welcome

    I thought it was the wheels (1" taller wheel, 1/2" from center...netting a half inch higher stance) but looks like that is not the case.

    maybe the TRD Sport shocks have something to do with it?

    reason I'm going down this road of questions: I figured at 1st look, Toyota had made a front height adjustment since the Sport now comes from factory w/ the 4-leaf rear. apparently not so.

    so, I may add the 5100's @ .85 to the front to level the stance a bit. (especially since I have a set of four 5100's in my garage new in the box)

    thanks

    My '09 Sport came with the 4 leaf pack but had a similar front measurement to what you posted
