    I'm leveling out my truck and need some quick help. Do I move the adjustment collar on the toytec coil overs up or down to lower the ride height? I just turned the pass side a full turn and I don't think it lowered the height any. Its 100 deg out and I'm on tw on my phone :p

    Pretty sure you want the collar to come up if you want it lowered

    Down. The adjuster is on the bottom of the shock, so it has to be moved down to lower.

    Thanks for the help guys! Lol I cranked them way up and the truck definitely had the lean to it. So back down it came.

    I know that fender to center of the hub is the normal measurement but I just wanted to even up so I measured from the top of rim to fender. The edge of the rim is a fixed point like the hub so I figured it was ok. I got 14.25" on the driver's side, 14.5" on the passenger side. Before I did it I had 15" on the passenger side. I can live with a half-inch difference.

    The whole point of leveling the ride was to keep the inner CV joint boot fins from touching each other, which was done!
