    It would be more useful to measure from hub center to fender as that measurement is unaffected by tire size. Or, at least include tire size with the ground to fender measurement.

    Sandman, not messing with your thread, but as I read some members mentioned center hub so I included that too.

    Good thinking, Kudos! I was just thinking something uniform.

    Also a picture is a good addition, thanks BryWi.

    I have a real problem with my rear AAL. I started with 34.5 inches from the ground to the fender well. After the AAL I now have 38 inches on both sides,a gain of 3.5 inches. I measured again today and it is not settling at all,this is with my Topper, all ladders and equipment, PLUS 200 pounds of sand over the rear axle. Without the sand it rides like a darn buckboard, any suggestions as to what happened that gave us the extra lift ? Thanks.

    Good morning, I just worked all freaking night, and ended it with a bloody nose.

    Bump, I'm going to re-measure

    Mine has been corrected with the ToyTec 1/4" top plate spacer.

    The Toytec spacer is only applicable if you have their lift, right?

    I have read that some members have handmade spacers to correct their problem.

    If there is a manufactured fix for this with my set up (5100s only) please let me know...

    No, you don't have to have a ToyTec lift to use the spacer. I only have 5100s in the front. I haven't heard of anything handmade. If you already have the 5100s installed, all you have to do is drop the driver side coilover down just enough to drop this spacer on top of the coilover assembly. Viola!

    I made a handfull of spacers to counter the lean on some trucks (mine included). They arent hard to make if you have the tools.
