I believe the struts are the same hight the actual coils are different in hight. Once the TRD coils were on the truck they didn't have as much lift as the stock coils. I would have thought the opposite.

Trd coils resulting in less lift just doesn't sound right at all, and by an 1 1/2"

Are you sure you didn't get the springs swapped around by any chance?

I'm really surprised that no one can give an absolute answer one way or the other. I'm starting to think there isn't any difference between the two coils...just the other items that come along with the trd package....skid plate, better shocks, stickers, etc.

I'm going to swap the coils out again this weekend. The TRD coils have the grey rubber guard on the coils so I know I didn't cross the coils. I will take more measurements and pictures this time around and post.

^^^^ hahaha you have way more time than I do...but man that would be great then everyone would no for sure.

I have a brand new set of trd coils waiting to go on the truck with my toytec level but if I can get more lift out of the non trd coils then why change.

Thanks

Did you end up swapping them and taking measurements/pictures?

Im interested in this. Im surprised that this has only been brought up recently. I do know that the suspension is a bit stiffer. I really don't seem to see a hight difference. They have a bunch of Tundras here on post so when I see one thats a TRD I tend to park as close as I can get to it. But I don't notice any difference. I did though notice yesterday that this other trucks front end was a bit shorter then mine, but he did have different rims and tires (I didn't get to check the size). So this brings me back to wonder what are the hard facts on the entire TRD Suspension on these Tundras....raw numbers

Re: Stock TRD vs non-TRD stock springs

I park my 08 trd next to a guy at work with a non trd and they look to be the same height. His truck is an sr5 mine is limited and we both have the same tire size but different wheels, both are stock wheels trd on mine and sr5 alloys on his. Both are also crewmax. Im pretty sure his is an 07.

As far as the stock tire size question, my 2011 SR5 came with 275's so different size tires than the TRD, no.

My 2012 DC TRD 2WD came with 275 width tires and the 18" alloy wheels. Somewhere in my searching for other accessories or leveling kits I came across TRD off road suspension packages available separately. I can't find them now, but I remember that they noted the TRD suspension reduces the payload capacity to something like 1200lbs. That should mean the TRD springs are softer, right?

Are you referring to Toyota literature on a pickup with the TRD suspension?

I think that the payload is rated a little lower since (I believe) the TRD automatically includes other options, such as the towing package, that increases the pickup's weight and eats into the payload.

No. The note I saw was a site where you could buy the TRD shocks/springs separate.
