    I have a 2007 Tundra leveled with Bilstein ride height adjustable shocks. I just purchased a Westin HDX Grill guard which weighs 140 lbs. Have not installed it but wondering if it will lower my front end any. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    Doubtful it'll be noticeable. U can always adjust the settings on the shocks if they're adjustable.

    Thank you. I have the shocks at max and really don't want to do anything else to have to level it again. Since it is still packaged, I was thinking about setting it on the hood just to see but sounds like that might not be necessary.

    Prob won't. Your ride might feel a little softer. Just jump on the front and see if it lowers with your body weight.

    That's one heavy grill guard. Guys that install heavy bumpers (around 250 lbs) report as much as 1/2 inch decrease in height. I would guess that it will decrease a small fraction of an inch, probably not enough to worry about.
