6.7 FX4 Front suspension factory

does anyone have a pic of the wheel well that shows the stock springs and shocks? My buddy just bought a 2011 6.7 FX4 and I think it is already leveled but not sure if there is a spacer in there from the factory. just want to see a pic of someones stock front suspension to confirm. thanks

their stock springs are taller than ours by an inch i think. and their wheel wells sits higher as well. I have stock truck with 35 toyo M/T (2010 FX4) and my buddy is running exact same tire and sits like 2" higher than me. Pisses me off, but it's they way they come stock from what i understand. I've been wrong many times before.

Sorry no pic bud. I if i get around one I will snap a pic and post.

Reason I ask is there is like a 3" polyurethane looking spacer on top of his front springs, so if someone with a 2011 can take a pic of their front spring set up on a stock Fx4 I could compare. Maybe someone put a leveling kit on it.

thanks

There should be a polyurethane spacer with or without a level kit on it. If there is a spacer between the poly spring buffer and the top mount there is a kit in there. Keep in mine it could have bigger springs like I have and to look at it you would not know. You can also put a spacer on the bottom mount as well. If it was a F250 the rear would need a F350 3.5" block or a 4" block or the rear would sag. The stock block is 2".
