First I have searched and searched and searched again. Wow, there is lot of info on this site!

I want to slightly lower the truck abit. It seems that people going from 2WD springs to 4 WD springs gain ~1"-1.5"? So I should lose the same amount.?

I want to change over my Non-TRD 4wd springs to TRD 2WD springs with the RED/BLUE TRD shocks.(TRD part number 00602-48500-101)

Any precautions?

My goal is better ride, better handling. I ride 99.9% on pavement, the only time I go off road is fishing or to the range. (4wd in the snow)

Feedback appreciated.

Thanks

you can try just switching from 4wd TRD to 4wd NON TRD. not sure if it will make a different in height wise, but maybe it will ride softer?

hdtech, hey there instead of spring, try "lowering shackles" #6700 ( I can not remember the brand, do a search on lower shackles)for a Chevy, you have to grind the bushings a little on both sides and they fit right in, should drop an 1- 1 1/2" and only cost about $70......I did my 4wd 05 DC and it rides just fine. good luck, CSM-H

I already have the 4wd non TRD springs on my vehicle.
7009
I am not comfortable "tying" down my springs. Besides I need new shocks and can use OEM parts.

I have 3 different "TRD" springs for the vehicle using the www.toyodiy.com website.
They list:
48131-AF090/100 4wd TRD at 14.626"
48131-AF0230/240 2wd limited at 14.14"
48131-AF170/180 2wd limited at 13.39"

So thanks for the input though.

How were you able to tell the difference between the 2wd and 4wd springs? Also the TRD springs? I looked at the site, but I did not see a way to tell the difference between the different springs listed.

I had to go back to the 2002.
ToyoDIY.com

I know from T/S and using the part#s on the Toyodiy.com. Then I used an online Toyota parts vendor Champion ToyotaWorld
and "punched" in the numbers and got references for the parts.

Also on Toyodiy there are listings to "Bilstein" for the springs. I would correlate that to the OEM TRD package. (thin,yet possible)

Also the I know that the:
TRD 4X4 coils
- drivers: yellow-yellow 48131-AF100
- passengers: blue-yellow 48131-AF090
is 100% correct.
So they too are listed at BILSTEIN, L=371.5


Also I found a fellow T/S who confirmed his 2WD TRD has these springs.
TRD 4X2 coils
-drivers: red-yellow
-passengers: purple-yellow

He just needs to verify the part from his VIN and punch it in Toyodiy.com.


Did I over explain that? :blah:

The search continues.....
