    Does anyone know if the coil spring rates on a 4cyl prerunner and a V6 prerunner are the same? Are the stock coils exactly the same on both trucks?

    Found out my coils are pretty much shot, that's why I'm lower than redraider, yet we both have spindles. Just trying to see if an extra set of coils a buddy of mine has at home will work.

    Not sure if it matters or if you care, but TRD Off Road coils are different than TRD Sport and SR5 coils. The Off Road coils are progressive rate where the others are linear rate. It wouldn't make a difference as far as being able to swap coils. Any coil from a 6 lugger would be interchangable with any other 6 lugger, just throwing it out there.
