    This pertains to a 2010 Tundra, TRD, 4x4.

    I bought the truck used with 69k. I am trying to go through the truck, figure everything out, figure out mods the previous owner has done, and create a game plan. I am trying to figure out exactly what I have as far as a lift/leveling kit.

    The front is a bolt-on spacer above the stock TRD coilovers, I am planning to go with adjustable coilovers. I have my eyes on Radflo coilovers and JBA UCA's right now.

    The rear is where I have a question, do the 2nd gen 4x4 Tundras come with any sort of block from the factory, or does the leaf pack sit directly on the axle pad? I have a 1" block between the leaf pack and the axle pad (mounting pad welded to axle). I know some other manufacturers come stock from the factory with a 1" or smaller block under the leaf pack.

    I believe what I have right now is a "3-1 lift kit", 3" front 1" rear. I want to confirm this before moving forward.

    You most likely have a block. It's not stock in which case.

    Post a pic so we can tell you for sure.

    Yup, looks like a spacer lift up front with a block in the rear.

    I just went out and looked at mine, a stock 2013 and the spring pack is right on the axle pad. I'd say the P.O. added the block you have.

    Thanks. I wanted the confirmation before I start making plans for the front.

    On the next episode of "DO I HAVE THIS". Is this the spacer for a front diff drop? Do I already have a front diff drop? Trying to get my ducks in a row before I place an order. For reference, this is the passenger side mount for the front diff.

    looks like it. It's a good sign if the P.O. did it.

    Mine came stock with a different drop, or else the shop that installed my lift put one on without mentioning or charging me for it.

    I'd get rid of that block and get yourself a new Leaf PAC looks like there "hyper bowing" or at least flattining out a bit

    Does anyone know for sure if its a diff drop spacer or if this is what it looks like from the factory? To me it looks like a spacer. I don't want to make more work for myself or put an additional spacer in place, causing other problems.

    That is the plan. New leaf pack somewhere in the future. Getting the front sorted first.

    Does anyone else have a pic of their passenger side front diff mount? One that you know for fact either has the diff drop or is stock?

    I need a reference before I dig into the front end of the truck.

    Thanks
