Re: I Wish This Part Existed

Thanks!!!
Iíve searched and searched to no avail.
Toytec couldnít offer any suggestions either.
Stock springs are 14Ē so a 16Ē spring should give me a couple inches lift?

Technically yes, 2" taller might give you around 3" of lift. But I think that is accomplishing the same thing as just adjusting the preload on the 6112's?

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

Can 2014 TTUE TRD 6112ís be preloaded to increase lift? I think the later ones could but I didnít think mine could. I was under the impression that new coil overs, lifting springs or spacers were the only choices I had other than a body lift.

Technically, if they have the same spring rate.

Any spring can give you more lift if you preload them enough. What will suffer will be ride quality, braking distances, early failure of suspension, steering, Axles, and other components, but that's not what you really asked. What exactly are you trying to accomplish besides lifting 3"?

There are many reasons to lift, just curious yours. Also, there's nothing wrong with adding a 1/4" spacer on top of the coilover assembly, which will give you approximately 1/2" at the wheel to compensate. Keep in mind that the higher you go, the more down travel you give up and adding a limiting strap can help the suspension from topping out.

Re: I Wish This Part Existed

Tired of following a vehicle for miles with its turn signal activated?

All cars should be equipped with a turn signal that doubles its clicking volume after 2 minutes (provides enough time to turn at a light or stop sign). That way the person driving is adequately notified that his/her turn signal needs to be turned off. If after another two minutes the driver still hasn't reacted to the blinker, the car should shutdown the radio and all bluetooth devices, and maybe spray water from the center of the steering wheel.

Rant off.

For some seniors, it's called "an eventual turn." Pretty sure it's a legal maneuver in Florida.

You mean an Eventual Left?

This is doable without 3". BMC and wheel back spacing comes to mind, but there are lots of folks running 305s with minimal lift.
