    I thought they made a lift one. My bad.

    What size tire do you have? Snap pics of the whole vehicle, as well as a fenderwell shot to see the C/O's. You could always take the spindles off, sell them, use that to buy some 700lb coils so then you wont have to have as much preload to get to that 3" mark.

    Correct!

    Take the fiberglass off or get 35's. Or lower the truck and stay with 33's

    I think the fenders are throwing if off a bit, since they are made to clear a 35". But looking at it, you may be able to just do a 1" shorter spring on there.

    Here is Tom's who has the same setup, but with Icon's and no glass

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...s-2012-prerunner-access-cab-slow-build-3.html

    Icon uses a 13" coil. I don't know 100% but King may use a 14" coil. Your truck looks good and good ground clearance. I Would try to keep the spindles. The only thing i'm not sure off is that if it's the spindle that is getting you that high alone. You have some options though. Tom's site really level, so im thinking the shorter coil may be the way to go.

    If this helps...i'm sitting with about 1 inch of lift/preload on my coils. About 5 threads more on the drivers side for the taco lean. Though today I am adding a D29XL leaf to my Dakars!

    Ill give King a ring in a few min. If they are 14" springs, i would just drop to a 13", or if they are 13" drop to a 12" I would not go any less than a 600lb spring though. You look to be about 1-2" higher in the front.

    But like with Tom's truck, he has 13" 650lb springs and is sitting almost dead level with the same spindles, no glass.

    In theory yes....You may even want to stick to 650lb. When on the vehicle it's a 2:1 ratio with preload. So a 1" shorter spring would tech. mean 2" lower on the vehicle. (which you can then adjust with the preload.

    Just spoke with King, They told me it's a 14" 600lb spring.

    If your okay with black coils, i think the Icon 13" 650lb coils would get you where you need. Or do a 13" King 600lb coil.

    The reason i say Icon is cause Tom's setup above is level and with the same spindle and rear as you so we know that is level. But the 13" King should work in theory as well the same way.

    In the end, your still gonna have the gap in the wheel/fender since the glass is made to fit 35's.

    Ya, even custom length rear's don't add lift. The only thing that adds lift shock wise are coil overs or air shocks.



    And you may need to put a little pre load on it once it sags a bit. I honestly don't know since i have not seen it. In theory you should not have to, but you won't know for sure till it's on.

    King may not make a 13" then. You will be ok with 12" just will have to preload it.

    I only have the Icon 13" 650's or any of the Eiback (grey) coils. But they dont make a 13" either.

    I'm tellin' ya to just lift the rear one more inch. You've got 4" lift spindles up front and 3" lift leaves in the rear. You could probably hit up OMD and have him make us up some 4" lift leaves to match the front, but won't require hundred of pounds in the bed. I think changing coils is just going to effect performance for ya. Your working against the spindles...

    True. But if he doesn't want to touch the rear then no other way really except for ditching the spindles.

    The one thing i was concerned about is that even changing the springs, there is a chance that it may not change it at all if it's the spindles that are just too high. May be the reason TC and Camburg both only do 3-3.5" spindles.

    Yea I was under the impression that lift spindles is a whole different geometry so you can only go up, not down lol. I feel like lowering the truck around lift spindles either just won't work, or will just mess up the geometry as it is....I know for sure you'll be losing alot of Up travel by going down in coil length

    YA, the front wont be able to go lower than 4" without having the alignment all messed up. You just cant tell from the pics if it can go down anymore via the coils. And really you wont know till you try. The back would be a safer way to do things.

    On Tom's truck it's level with the same rear as the OP. But he also has Icon's up front, so there are some differences.

    The coils are your call. In theory it should work, but like I said, you wont know till they are on. and that's a gamble. If it was me, i would address it in the rear by adding a 1" block or something with the shackles/leaf arch.

    Before ordering I would call King and pick their brain if you can, see if a 12" will work and if there are enough threads on the shock body to have the adjuster spun down that much. I do not have a set here to check with.

    Yup! And i have 1" one's here in stock. They are like $65 for the pair. Blocks are not bad as long as your not getting over a 3" one. Then you get back axle hop/wrap and can get sketchy.

    I just added the D29XL leaf to my Dakars about an hour ago. I am now measuring 25 3/4 center of the hub to bottom of the fender. Fronts are at 26 from hub center to bottom of the fender. Couple of pics:

    Not if you cranked the C/O's up to 3" Should be close to level then.
