Once the install was complete and a few miles were under our belt, we adjusted the Toytec coilovers until we had only a slight rake. We then took it out on the trail for a test run and noticed more control in hillclimbs, fast sections, bumps, and off-camber situations. We gained almost an inch at the same adjustment setting due to the 600-pound spring, and then dialed it in to about a 13⁄4-inch higher lift than it had before the install. With the higher clearance, we also noticed fewer undercarriage and skidplate scraping in the ruts and on the rocks.
