    Some used Toytech coilovers caught my eye in the for sale section, so I signed up.

    I bought a used 2016 limited 4x4 this month, I love it so far. Can't wait to put some nicer suspension on it.

    Here it is, in all it's stock glory, next to the truck it replaced:

    Are you planning to lift the rear of the truck or crank the coilovers down to about 2"-2.5" lift for a leveled look?

    Hey David and Brian. I installed the suspension today. I will probably avoid lifting the rear as I load motorcycles in the bed regularly.

    I took 3/4 inch of preload off of each coilover. This is pretty dang level, maybe 1/2" of rake. I only have 2.5° caster with -0.1 camber, I'd like to have more caster but the truck actually drives great as it is. I didn't install the diff drop, the CV angles are fine at this height.

    Only complaint is the rear feels a little soft and maybe under damped. More miles will help make up my mind on that.

    509b1074c70636b2851a031573082c2f_7e74f00666b8aa8d10519b2885aa3c78bb2696c1.jpg

    Awesome. Glad you got it installed and dropped the front down a bit.
