Narrowing Down my Thuren Choice....
Hey guys - Thuren has been super helpful by email and I've scrolled through 90% of the leveling pictures thread - a lot of different wheel/tire setups too -
So in talking with Thuren support, he said for me with a daily driver he'd recommend the 2" leveling coils, Overlands, and a track bar - If I wanted to do the rear, he said the full Overland system with the 1" rear lift coils will be a great overall ride (he said I could do the 2.75" front coils but I noted that I like a bit of visual rake so I am unsure if I will be unhappy with the final look, and will probably stay with the 2" front coils)
I'm on factory 20" wheels and 285/60/20 tires now - someday I will go up to 35's likely, but for the time being I will be on stock wheels/tires -
I find very few reviews of the guys who did the 1" lift coils in the rear with the new brackets/etc - most people I'm seeing have done leveling kits in the front only and maybe new shocks at all 4 corners.
I also have seen only 1 member who did Thuren's 1" lift coils -
Kings, or going "balls to the wall" is out of the budget for the time being -
Current measurements from center of hub to wheel arch
Front 25 1/4
Rear 27 1/2
Measurements level ground to wheel arch
Front 40 1/2
Rear 43 3/4
One of the members in my searching who did the Thuren 1" FRONT coils noted he got a net 1.5" of lift - which doesnt sound too bad at all and would still give a visual bit of rake.
What I'm having trouble finding is whether the Thuren 1" REAR coils give an actual lift - the only person I can find who installed them, got about 1/4" max if his measurements were right - which if true, would definitely have me choosing 2" front coils as opposed to 2.75" regardless, the 2.75" alone up front give it too much nose high look for me.
I'm just curious if the 1" coils and leaving the rear stock, would maybe be a good happy medium.
For me its basically trying to choose a good OEM+ option to bring the front up a little bit, maintain some visual rake. I have the Bilstein yellows at all 4 corners now from the factory, but would swap them to Fox IFPs (if keeping stock rear coils) or the Thuren Overland shocks at all 4 corners (if I did the 1" life coils)
