    HI All!

    Quick question for you 1st gen tundra owners. What is the center to center measurement between 2 of the 3 studs on the top hat of a front strut?

    Planning some things for a 2nd gen taco and wondering if the top hat bolt pattern is the same on a 2nd gen taco vs a 1st gen tundra.

    Thanks!!!

    It's actually an Asymmetric triangle pattern on the 1st gen's, not a perfect centered triangle pattern like it is on the Tacomas

    son of a bitch, you are right... it aint a triangle centered on the shock shaft. but still, how far is each point of the triangle center to center on 2 studs?

    and semantics on the word... yall knew what i was talking about.

    It looks like in my file it's around 3.25". Cut some top spacer shims on my CNC at one point, the holes I had were slotted a little so that may be off +/- a tiny bit
