    Guys, I'm installing my ToyTec coilovers. Now usually, I know everything. In this instance I will ask for help though.:D
    The only suspension modifications I have is the rear spring TSB. What I'd like input on are what settings are recommended to level the truck out. i.e. how much thread should be showing on the adjustment? I have the full assembly from ToyTec.

    Thanks a million.

    about an inch and a 1/4 should get you about level. depends on exactly the condition of the rear springs.

    Thanks for the response. I ended up with about an inch of threads showing. What resulted was a slightly nose high attitude. Maybe they will settle a little. It seemed as though the new rear springs did, although I never measured before and after to confirm this.

    Front or back? I've now adjusted the right side down even more. Right side now has about 5/8 thread showing, left has 1 inch to get it to even out. I have had no problem adjusting with out removing them. Just jack the truck up yank the wheel and use the handy dandy tools ToyTec sent. I am going to let it all settle out a little before I have an alignment done. Hope I don't chew my tires up in the meantime. It is pretty clear I need an alignment job, and I don't need tool to see that.
