    Im at 3” right now and it rides pretty good. Only thing is I have the bad batch of toytec eibach coils. So we used the top notch and got 3” up front with some slight driver side lean. Im interested in moving to 3.5”of lift by adding .5 shim on passenger and 2-.5” shims on drivers side. Currently running 2” block in the rear. Will probably put coach builder shackles that give .625” lift to accommodate. Currently gave exactly 1” of rake which i like but i think 1.5” would be perfect so maybe +2 shackles instead of +1? I know .5 is not much but am i losing a lot of travel etc?

    ride was pretty good before the duratracs went on. Hahaha

    Have you contacted @Toytec Lifts about the Eibachs? I would assume you are referring to the issue from about a year ago with the height not being what was advertised?

    Can you just turn down the high side a little?

    Yes i did. To fit the tires we just adjusted the notches and honestly the ride wAs actually ok but once i got the tires got bumpy but that was expected. My question is how many guys have gone pass 3” with just a drop diff spacers? Toytec did respond and offered to send the springs or give a credit. I asked for the credit then they stop responding. Im happy with the ride for now and took it on some good trails. Just wanting alittle more height hahaha

    Trying to gain but Wanting to see if the trade off of height will greatly affect travel/ ride quality

    There’s so little upside to an extra half in of height, but far more downside in ride quality. There is only so much travel available in the suspension arc.

    Tons of people run what you’re asking, but coilovers are adjustable for a reason, stacking spacers above them is hokey.

    I would be worried about down-travel being reduced so much, almost probably dangerous when going over 3" as perhaps a wheel could just come off the pavement if you went around a turn fast, perhaps not, but that would be my concern with such limited down-travel.
