    Alright, when I purchased my truck (couple years ago) it had a spacer lift on it, and I wasn't sure if it was 2.5" or 3". Last year, I decided to go ahead and put an adjustable coilover on, and went with the Toytec adjustable CO kit. Unfortunately, this kit is apparently different from the Ultimate setup, and the measurements (adjustment nut to base) that they specify for 3" of lift turned out to be ~1".

    Since I don't have a baseline measurement, I have no idea where this truck sits stock. I adjusted the CO until I hit where I think is ~3", but it's really a guestimate.

    Here's the new issue.... I put on the 3-Leaf progressive kit from wheeler's, which is supposed to obtain 1.5" in the rear. I've had it on for a couple of months now, and it's certainly settled, and I see now that my rear is ~1/2" lower than the front. So, I'm not sure if the rear has simply sagged below 1" of lift, or if my front is actually 3.5".

    If anyone has a good measurement, I'd love to dial this in closer, or at least figure out where I'm at.

    More likely the rear has sagged. The Toytecs also should already settled. I would just take measurements from ground to fenders and re-adjust the coilovers.

    I think that you're right, I should be completely settled.

    The unsettling thing (pun intended) Is that I had 1" blocks on the rear before going to the 3-leaf progressive kit, and I was level with that setup. If that's the case, this supposed 1.5" rear lift has obtained approximately 1/2" total lift after settling.
