Ok, I know I could read this whole thread and find my answer... And I probably will later tonight. But for now, I'm looking at suspension setups for my 03. I was thinking full OME kit with 881s and Dakars (I'm doing the suspension upgrade because my stock leafsprings are so bad they look like they're installed upside down). But I really would prefer to have 5100s instead. So... What are the rules on using the 5100s with OME coils? How does 5100s set at 0" with 881s compare to 881s with the Nitrochargers? Can you set the 5100s higher than 0" with OME coils?

why not get the OME in the front and then get the 5100s for the rear?

Because I'm OCD and can't have mismatched shocks on my rig. Plus, that yellow is fucking ugly.

The coils look the same regardless. Having yellow shocks up front with silver shocks in the back is what would drive me insane. Coils are black regardless.

I think that is a dumb reason. Function>form. You'll never notice once they get dirty. Here is what ome from, 5100 rears looks like

Just go full ome. Worth the money. I've been very impressed with my front suspension.

I think it's a dumb reason too. But like I said, I'm OCD and that's the way it is. I haven't ruled out going full OME I was just asking how the Bilsteins with 881s set at different heights compare with the OME Nitrochargers as far as lifted height.

I have no experience with it but I have talked to a couple people who have paired ome coils with 5100s. They say it rides on the rough side. But how a truck rides is subjective. With no weight up front you should see ~2" of lift out of the 881s on nitrochargers. I'm running 883 and the older shocks so it rides great on the road and soaks up bumps very very well but it doesn't flex out very easily.

If your gonna go OME in the front just go full ome don't mix it up trust me. Ome are made to work with each other there not built for 5100. Rather go full ome in front or get a set of sway aways or icons for the front with dakars in the rear

I have an 01 4x4 double cab v6. I do plan on adding an off road bumper in the future. But not right away. One big purchase at a time here...

Is there a standard in which people seem to go with in terms of 881's, 882's and 883's for this type of truck? I'd like to achieve somewhere around 2.5-3 inches of lift.

From what I've read, full OME seems to be the way to go. Any advice or suggestions?

It's funny, in 09 when I first joined getting the 5100 fronts paired with OME coils was THE THING to do. Now that consensus seems to be no more. I wanted 5100 fronts but they were sold out when I bought them so... I guess I'm glad I went with the nitrocharger but.
