    Hey guys I got a question.....I'm going to install coilover for 3 inch lift up front....now for the rear I was thinking about the ome/dakar 2.25" leaf pack........I was wondering with that will the rear sit higher then the front cause I want the front a little higher than the rear

    It would probably sit even, if not a little higher in the rear. Depends how high you set your c/o's.

    witht the cilovers set at 3", i personally think the rear would still sit higher with the 2.25" pack in the rear

    message someone here with stock setup and ask them to measure distances and compare!

    well im assuming your talking about an 03 prerunner. if it is a a 5 lug then look at performancelifts.com, they have a fabtech 3" lift spindle. then you can run a better shock / coil combo up front give you 3" and a better ride. talk to other 1gen guys see if anyones running those spindles.

    just checked again. they have em for both 5 lug 2wd and 6lug prerunners. check em out do some research and ask other 1gen guys q's. good luck keep us posted
