Stock TRD vs non-TRD stock springs

Are they different? TRD springs are stiffer? Thanks

I have never seen a chart to tell you what is what but I have a set of non trd springs and the factory TRD springs that are on my truck and they have different colored paint stripes on them.

The voices in my head don't like you.

That's to tell you which is the left and which is the right.

What?

The TRD springs are different colors than the non trd springs.

Do the trd front springs give more lift than the non trd springs? The reason I'm asking is it seams trd spring equipped trucks come stock with 275's and non trd spring equipped trucks come with the 255's????.

Is there any truth to this?

Thanks

He's saying the color indicators are to mark the left and right.
(My left is yellow,blue, red and my right is yellow, yellow, white)

TRD's could have different colors too.

I know what that waterhead is saying. My point is the TRD and the Non TRD are different colors totally.

Are the TRD Off Road progressive and the non TRD springs Linear?

Swapped Springs

I have the ready lift 3/2 with non TRD shocks and springs on my 2012 crew max tundra grade 4x4. The front sits at 40 and 3/8 inches and the rear is 41 and 1/2 inches (ground to wheel well). My brother has the same truck and year just with the TRD package. He went with icon coilovers so I grabbed his front TRD struts and springs. After installing them on my truck I lost 1.5 inches of height on the front but the ride was a bit smoother and controlled. With the struts and springs side by side ( off the truck) they are the exact same length. That kinda threw me for a loop needless to say i put the non TRD springs on the bilstein struts and got my 1.5 inches back. Just thought i would share my findings. Im running stock 18 inch wheels and tires for now.
