    I need some input from the experts here...

    I just installed the toytec coilovers yesterday. However, they didn't send any instructions in the box, but I installed them anyways. They are already preassembled for a 2.5 inch lift. I had no reference on how to increase them so I guessed and after taking before and after pictures it looks like I increased them to a little over 4 inches.

    Questions? Will I have problems with this 4 inch lift? Is there anything else I need to do to make it a safe ride? Do I need the diff drop spacers, or axle shims?

    I email the guy at toytec for instructions and he said he didnt recommend increasing it more than 1/4'' unless I have more weight in the front (after market bumper or winch)

    He also said I should't go over 3.5 inches.

    Here are the before and after pictures:

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I didn't get the ultimate lift. I only got the adjustable coilovers and the rear blisten shocks. I'm also planning on getting the OME leaf Springs for the rear.

    Thanks for any help,
    Eric

    You need to be at 3" lift. Lower the front a bit.

    I would lower em to 3". That's what I did and they feel a lot better. Less wear and tear down the road! Good luck
