    Does anyone know which stock spring goes on what side. One has a blue and white mark and the other has a green and white mark. I forgot to mark which side was what.

    You talking about the coils up front?

    If so it shouldnt matter what side they go on.

    Yes the one up front. Someone told me they were side specific. If get them backwards the taco lean would be worse. They do look to be different lengths.

    I beleave you are correct. Just checked my '11 AC and all I saw was black.
    Try searching suspension For Front coil replacement. Or ask Toytec which side the Taco lean spacer goes on and put the longer coil on that side. If all else fails PM chris4x4.

    Thanks for looking. The paint must be on the inside of the coil. I might send chris4x4 a pm and see if he knows.

    IIRC , the driver's side stock coil should be a bit longer than the passenger side . Do you have them out of the truck ?

    That's what I thought but wasn't sure. I looked into a lift but not ready to do it yet. Searched Taco Lean and every one says driver side so put longer coil on driver side.

    On mine, it looked like there was a blue and white stripe on both sides. Then there's a red stripe below that on the driver side and an orange stripe on the passenger side.

    :notsure:

    I'll have to look at mine again. That sounds like it might be right.

    Not all the time. They can be very close to the same length, but the winds of the spring are slightly different.

    Yes I see what your talking about. The green one seems to be, would you say compressed a little more than the blue one. This all would be the same on a sr5 and a trd? I have a sr5.

    Make sure the green one is the same height, or a tad longer.
