    It depends on a few things, but typically about 1.25" in the front.

    thanks for the quick replies! i'll give it a measure, but it's good to know it should be between 1 and 2 inches

    Window Tint, Sockmonkey bed decals, Eibach 1.6" coils, 5100s front (set @ .85) / rear
    The difference between my front and back is exactly two inches and I have an 07 DC 4x4 OR. I want to level as well and I am thinking of doing the Eibach Springs with 5100s up front set at 0 for 1.6inches of lift. I will place 5100s in the back as well so they all match. Has anyone else went this route????

    I have a 2010 PreRunner Access Cab with the TSB rear springs and 5100s all around. I have the front set at 1.75" which gave it a nice raise but still has a little rake. I decided against the 2.5" setting because of the harsh ride comments I had heard as well as the possibility of not being able to get the alignment within factory specs using the stock UCAs.
