Hmmm did you crank them in the right direction. I mean i guess you must have if at first you got a gain of almost an inch, but that doesnt make sense at all?

I turned the driver side 3 times Iturned the passenger side 4 1/2 only becasue the passenger side stuck out further. I had the same exact height before I drove

I had the truck up about 3 inches off the ground on stands

Before I drove it was right where I wanted it so I could fit the 285's under there
Ill probbaly try again wed. or if I can sooner

Yeah I would try to turn them again, I bet you'll be able too since they settled some.

Where are you measureing from? I hope its not to the ground because that can change, you should be measuring from the center of the wheelwell to the center of the hub so you get actual suspension height and not tire and uneven ground and all other things that could be an issue.

I had mine up for a little while and it gave me an inch or two. Cranked them back down since then and I have a nice smooth ride.
