Toytech Ultimate Lift Owners
I finished up the 1" body lift this weekend.... I said last time I did a body lift I would never do another one and this time I really mean it.
That was quite a bit of work for 1". Plus mine is a 2012 and the kits are only for 09 and older, so there was some hurdles to over come. The good news is the fan shroud did not need to be cut! But every body mount and pipe spacer did below the frame mount. I had to take 1" out of them to get the bolts to go through. Longer bolts would have been best, but worked just the same. I am also pleased that there are no body gaps in the front or rear bumpers. Front was moved up one set of holes and I added a bracket to bridge the inner hole. The rear moved up with no issues as well.
On to the suspension. I bought the toytech ultimate with LR UCA's. There are several setting in the paper work for the upper control arms, and if I recall correct setting "D" is close to factory. What did you use for your intinal setting before the alignment? I plan to run +/- 400 miles or about a week before alignment and don't want to eat 2000 miles of tread since Discount will give tire trade in credit to the new Nitto's.
Also did you measure and crank yours up to the full 3" or leave at the factory 2 1/2" setting? I know you need measure, install, drive to settle, measure and crank up if desired untill you reach the max of 3". I would like the front even to a little higher then the back.....
