    Howdy, I finally got the new SAW c/o's settle in and then readjusted the front height to be even with the rear and level out the taco-lean.....

    I got it to within 1/10" all around with a full tank and me not in it.

    BUT I never made measurements beforehand so I'm not really sure exactly how much I lifted it :confused:

    If anyone has a stock 05+ TRD OR could you measure from the center of the wheel hub straight up to the bottom of the fender on the front only?

    Thanks!

    (I did search around a bit but the numbers were inconsistant)

    1/10 " ? , what kind a tape measure you using ? Only place I see tenths is on a rafter square .

    I have a stock front end on my 09 TRD sport 4x4 , would that measurement help ?

    Ha! it was a cunthair less than an 1/8 so I estimated to a tenth. I spent a good 2hrs getting it perfect... i'm sure it will be .5" off tomorrow after more driving. As long as I had it almost perfect once I know it can't get any better and I'll stop looking at my truck from 5 different angles everytime I get in/out of it.

    And thanks for the second post, exactly what I needed. No flashlight for me, I'll compare in the morning.

    Thank you!
