Is my T30 Exy lifted already? (aka measurements)


Just a quick one hopefully as I can't find measurements anywhere on the site.

The Pedders UK site lists dimensions from the bottom of a 16in factory wheel which is sorta stupid as any measurement should be from the centre of the axle, as different wheels will give you different measurements using the Pedders method.

My 2004 Exy I've had for two weeks now, I dont think it's lifted but it seems higher than others in the shopping mall car park? From the centre of the wheel hub to top of wheel arch is 440mm and its got stock worn out 215/65/16 road tyres. Using Pedders method, my measurement is 660mm, which leads me to beleive this car is not lifted?

And while I have read a lot about Kings, Pedders, and other heavy duty lift springs can anyone recommend a really soft cushy spring for a plush ride on rough terrain. Not really interested in road handling manners, want soft plush off-road to compliment the 70/75 series A/T tyres I'll be putting on soon. The strut spacers and standard springs on Bilstein adjustable struts set to soft is one option I'm considering. Looking for other suggestions....

Thank you posting the information I could not find, it has answered my enquiry that this vehicle is not currently lifted, and I can see now why it is such an issue. My enquiry was also due to the current suspension level of my vehicle which has the driveshafts and CV's already at a considerable angle, certainly much more than my Pathfinder, which made me wonder if the vehicle was already lifted.

But you didn't "save me for looking for them" because I already searched for all the terms I could think of (T30 + suspension + height [or] measurement[s] + standard [or] stock) and nothing came up....that's why I wrote: "I can't find measurements anywhere on the site." I found the T30 lift thread, but after reading 14 pages, all I found was the height you can lift, concern about driveshafts/CV joints, strut spacers vs lifted springs, coil types, costs at various suppliers, etc.

If the measurement information is in the thread, could I suggest the simplest thing to do would be to post a link to the message(s) where it is in the thread, as it could be given I am either having trouble with my browser, or the search tool if the terms above are not finding the information you state is there.

I realise there are a lot of people who just post a thread without looking, but I am not one of them. The fact I posted the UK Pedders graphic and my own vehicle measurement information (rather than nothing at all but a request for information) plus the statement, "I cannot find", should show I did look already in various places before posting, (and not just this forum), and considered to include the information people would need to assist me with my enquiry easily. emoticon

Re:


No need to stress mate, I have been around this forum for over 13+ years plus and that's why I know where most of the information is located, it also takes a bit of time and patience going through a number of pages on an existing thread to locate what you're after. You got upto page 14, so you had quite a bit reading still to do emoticon

In any case, HERE is the post with the information you need in that thread.
