Lift Height Question

The more I'm on the site, the more I wonder about the lift on my truck. The PO already had the lift on it when I got it. I had assumed that it was a 2.5", but the more I look, it seems like i'm the only one with a "2.5 in." lift running 315s. There's 7" clearance from top of the tire to bottom of the fenderwell in front, and 8" in the rear. Is there a way to see what springs I have (stamping on the spring)? I know it's OME.

:cheers: ,

My springs came with a white sticker wrapped around a coil at the bottom of the spring (OME 865, or something like that).

I've never heard of OME doing anything other than "2.5," but if you've got 865s and no extra weight, then you'll get something closer to 4 inches.

Oh yeah.
Check for spacers too.

I checked for spacers. there are none. It just has a cheesy brushguard and a yakima roofrack, as far as extra weight goes.

OME's are black. My old Downey's were gold. I don't know what the new ones are. Are the tags still on the springs?

I'll have to check on that after work. I hope so.
