    I am installing king 2.5 extended travel shocks (650lbs springs) on my 2012 Tacoma with Deaver U402 stage one leaf packs. I would like the truck level. Is there anyone else running this same setup (shocks and leaf) pack and can tell me the thread count for preload you have for the front shocks to make the truck level? I have no additional weight on the truck.

    Thanks in advance.

    650lbs is pretty stiff for stock weight, whatever it comes out of the box with should be plenty, usually like 2-2.5 threads or so.

    like previous people said, if you don't have a front metal bumper or extra weight, 650lbs springs are too stiff. i had them on my Bilstein 6112 and hated the ride. installed the 600lbs springs and it made a big difference once they settled in. much more livable daily driving and off roading. don't have to deflate the tires as often when i do short off road trips.
