Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

I alway measure from fender lip to center of hub. Front = 27 3/4", Rear = 28". After installation of Thuren 1-1/2" springs up front, 1" coil spacer in the rear. Never did take measurements before doing the work. So, you may want to go with a bigger spacer in the rear for your wants. Cheers. did you...

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

I’m looking to add a spacer to my tear as well to recover some rake post-Thuren. Is there any reason to choose a spacer that sits under the spring (latest Traxda design) vs. those that sit on top of the spring (pretty much every other option, as far as I can tell). i talked to traxda about this and...

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

Picture in first post is pre-lift. It was a few weeks between doing the front and installing the rear spacers. With just the front done it definitely looked low in the rear. Where it's at now looks pretty good to me. Your milage may very. Cheers. ordered the 1.5" rear spacer today as i think it wil...

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

ya its better to measure at hub center rather than the ground. dont know what i was thinking haha. with the 1" rear spacer you only have 1/4" rake ? im assuming thats your truck photo on the first post ? if so, it sure looks like way more than 1/4". looks like 1.5" atleast

Re: Overland 1.5 inch Spring w/King OEM 2.5 Shock

New 2018 PW owner, converted from Tundra. I just received King 2.5 shocks and installed the rears. Can I run the Thuren 1.5 inch Overland spring with these shocks? On my Tundra the front lift (King coil overs) was pretty easy to install (for a first timer). I also swapped out the Tundra upper contr...

tire balance experts

last few sets of tires installed on my vehicles i noticed a red and yellow dot. never researched what they meant until recently. while there may not be a system wide standard, most sources agree the red is the runout high spot. yellow is weight low spot. if the wheel has a runout low spot designated...
