    hey guys I've searched for what my stock highly should be ad couldn't find exactly what it should be I've seen a lot on the lean but that's it. I'm running 265/75/16 with no lift (until tomorrow) I was parked next to a 2015 all stock with the 245/75/16 and noticed that it was sitting higher than mine. I have a 08 trd or with 120k could my springs be sagging? Thanks here are pictures.

    1-passenger front
    2-driver front
    3-driver rear
    4-passenger rear

    Not worried about the rear.

    At stock height, measuring from center of wheel to fender, the front should be @ ~20", and the rear should be @ ~22".

    No problem. The reason everyone goes from the center of the hub, is because it is a true measurement of suspension height, that takes away any variables like tire height.

    I would guess it probably had a lift of some sort.

    What type of lift are you getting?

    The 15 isn't 8 years old, so yes it sits higher.
