    How hard is it to adjust the lever under the truck. I don’t know if I should take it to a shop or if it’s something easy. Also does it stay that height after the truck is off

    it’s a 10mm socket to loosen the lever. Slide it up or down w your finger and retighten. Caution it doesn’t have to be cranked down. Just snug. Otherwise you might bend or break off the washer tab.

    also it’s easy. Swivel extension helps.

    Hi guys new to the forums. I just took my new 22 Tundra into the dealership for the harsh ride in any setting with no weight it was going to knock out filling. They said they couldn't raise the truck they had the head mechanic look at it and take pics and sent them to Toyota. While on the phone with Toyota they told them that exact thing to loosen the bolt and slide the arm. No bottoming out had it on the tollway at 70 mph it did feel a tad loose but I can live with it until I get a bedcover.Resized_20220331_121254.jpg Resized_20220331_121254.jpg Resized_20220331_121130.jpg Resized_20220331_133909.jpg

    If we’re able to raise about 2inch with the stock link then the westcott designs link is not needed.

    I am so frustrated, I first posted about this with my 22 Platinum on February 23.
    4 trips to the dealer for a total of 9days and they still will not make the adjustment.
    The field engineer said and I quote " this is a normal characteristic of the vehicle" WHAT! He has lost his mind. and hears is the biggest problem, HE NEVER DROVE THE VEHILCE.
    So now I have been working directly with corporate. Not saying it is getting any better but at least they are talking with my dealer and having them try some fixes.
    Now we are down to waiting for a 1794 to come in so they can be compared.
    WOW just make the adjustment already.

    At this point, why don't you just make the adjustment yourself or perhaps there are some other forum members on here willing to help that might be local to you?

    I am just about there.
    I want to see if the 1794 is doing the same thing, if not I'm going to tell them to set mine up just like the 1794.
    I don't want to make the adjustment while I am still dealing with Toyota.
    You know how they can be about the warranty.

    Hopefully going to pick up my truck in the next few weeks in Texas and drive it back to Florida. Never thought I'd need to pack tools to pick up a new truck, but I'll say I'm definitely packing a 10mm wrench.

    Adjusting the set point for the avs is not going to affect your warranty. It is operating within the normal range of motion.


    The OE setting is nowhere near enough up travel before hitting a solid bumpstop. I’ll bet we will soon be seeing a company like sumo spring make a progressive bumpstop that softens these blows

    Correct, that is my understanding anyway. This is the reply I got from Westcott, "To just level the front end you can do our Front Only kit and simply leave out the top shim plate. This will get your front end pretty close to a leveled stance." Then just adjust the factory lever. I have read that when adjusting the rear lever you should "reset" the system by manually raising the suspension to the high position and then putting it back to N.

    Does anyone know which preference to choose for a Platinum with AVS? Mine is being built in early July so I am trying to get a head start.

    From what I've seen Westcott post...avs equipped trucks come with tokicos but I would wait until you can confirm

    I emailed Westcott with the same Qs, as their web page info seemed a bit confusing for ppl with Platinums.

    Here's their response:
    "OK great [reference to my response that I have black shocks with harness on top in the front], that means you have Tokico shocks in your new Tundra.
    You will want to choose the AVS/Air Ride (Tokico Shock) option on the website for your rig.

    Thanks,

    Westcott Designs"

    Hope it helps.

    Just to verify…there is only one (1) link that needs to be moved, correct? And it’s by the driver’s side rear tire?

    There is one per side. Be sure to measure from floor to fender after adjusting to make sure your adjustments are equal on each side. I just adjusted mine yesterday. It was pretty simple and the truck rides a lot better now! No more hitting the bump stop and rough roads.

    One last question - this can be done without the truck being on a lift, correct?

    Yup. Did mine laying on the floor in my garage. Had to slide partially under my truck to get in position to loosen and adjust the brackets.

    Copy/pasta of my re: in a different thread, but I figured you (OP) will be insterested:

    "In case any one wants to know what a Platinum looks like on a Westcott 3/1 kit (well, they state that AVS/air trucks end up with 2" only in the front and they are correct).

    Anyway,
    2" gain in the front
    1.5" gain in the back
    1.5 rake front to back

    I don’t meant to beat a dead horse, but overall how satisfied are you with the AVS once you made the adjustment? You said it obviously rides better, but do you think it’s still problematic? I realize this is impossible for you to say, but do you think it’s on par with the non-avs trucks?

    I’m worried I made a mistake here. Still haven’t driven my truck so I have no frame of reference.

    There's nothing wrong with AVS and it'll ride better if you do any towing. Look at all the non air ride guys looking for air bags to help with rear sag when towing. Adjust the rear height and enjoy the free lift and better ride.

    Majority of us would say it rides better but then again, ride quality differs from one to another. My advice is to make the adjustment and feel for yourself. If you’re unhappy with it then it’ll be a 10-15minute adjustment back to stock.
