    I’ve seen in various threads all kinds of quotes about stock ride height, as measured from the hub centre to the top of the fender edge. Is there a factory spec for this dimension? Of course, lifted heights vary a lot, as there are so many permutations and combinations for lifting these vehicles. Could we post some stock ride heights here, just to see what the variance is? Thanks!

    Mine is:
    LF 19.25
    RF 19.25
    LR 21.25
    RR 21.25

    However, that’s with a steel rear bumper, steel Front Runner roof rack, Aluminum front bumper/winch, and recovery bag in the cargo area. So it’s a stock suspension but carrying about 300lbs

    All i have extra is a set of RSG sliders, about 100# for the set. I measured before and after slider install, pre-lift, and the measurements didn't change afterward.

    Hey ForRun - you need to take the four cases of beer that are loaded in one side out of the vehicle before measuring.

    My 18 4runner measurements, from the lower rim lip/thru the center of the hub and fender opening.

    Before level lift:
    LF-29.00"
    RF-29.25"
    LR-31.25"
    RR-31.25"

    After level lift:
    LF-30.75"
    RF-30.75"
    LR-31.25"
    RR-31.25"

    Yes most has a front lean down on the driver side.
    If you check out all the 4runner Pro's with the FOX shocks the left shock is set higher than the right side, this is to fix the lean!
    This was the same case with my 08 FJ.
