    That was gonna be my next question. Haha I know it'll be stiffer but I drive A LOT for work so I don't want anything super bouncy and sloppy or like a rock. Is it really that much stiffer than a stock TRD/bilstein setup?

    Any of you guys have the front settle more than the rear? Driving it this morning feels like I have a ton more rake then when it first went on - need to to get to a level surface to measure it again but it just feels different...

    Mine sagged about 3/4" on the first 100 miles. I'm right at 22 3/4 on both sides up front and it hasn't changed in a few thousand miles.

    The rear sagged on mine more than the front... Well, unless you count my coils that were improperly installed and bent at an angle first. But no, the fronts are still in great shape. Minus no powder coating really on them.

    I think mine sagged about the same as 4lo's - anyone running the top plate spacers and if so how do they feel? Really wanted to avoid spacers but thinking about putting some on, the rake is really buggin me.

    Mine are measuring about 22 1/4 on the front :(

    Ordered the 3/4 top plate spacers, hopefully that's as far as they go.

    Had them installed by toytec, came as one piece and just swapped out the old with the new - any way you could put a pic up so I can make sure they put them on mine?

    How many miles do you have on the kit now? How many months has it taken to get there?

    I had 4k on it on my first truck, swapped it over to the new one and I think this has about 10k. So, 14k total after 18 months. Had some hiccups in the beginning but they all worked out.
    Took me a little bit longer than it should have to get to me. Long story, mainly dealing with SierraExpeditions in Arizona who I bought it from and Camelback4x4 in NJ.

    Yep. About 1/2" or something like that? I have them on both sides. I DID ask them to start adding a 1/4" poly to one of the sides to assist in lean, but I don't think they ever did.
