Just measured my bog standard '10 build 2WD SR extra cab - 750mm approx from guard lip (no flares!) to ground.

Cheers.

By compressed do you mean sagged?
The alloy bullbar might have something to do with it.
I initially thought they might have been cut down but they're not.

He got one side done this arvo but reported only a 30mm height increase. See what happens when he does the other side but it' still very low.

Bit of an inconclusive final update to this thread.
The young bloke fitted the remaining front spring one Friday arvo in early Sept. and then went to town for the weekend before I got a chance to measure the height increase. He reported that it was a lot better to drive, didn't bottom out, but thought it needed more. I saw it briefly and it looked to only have lifted about an inch in the front.
Hasn't come back yet......

What i do know is that you can fit a 255/40R 20" under a 4x2 without worrying about clearances, i also had ample room under the guards without the 20" rims looking too small.

hope that helps..


is that approx 28" total rolling diameter?
