I had Wheelers assemble them before shipping to save some install time.

I'm undecided between the 881 with the top plate spacers or to get the 883 med springs w/ no top plates and also between the AAL or the dakkar leaf pack

Ill post a picture of the rear leafs, they might be sagging a little, need a expert opinion

The 881 is the medium spring. I believe that the 883 is second gen. I think that you will find the ride jarring with the heavier 882 springs.

That is EXACTLY what I am planning on doing once my Bilsteins get here. I already have the OME coils.

Any reason why most people that use the OME coils went with the Bilstein 5100 shocks instead of the OME shocks?
I assume cost was the biggest factor.

IMO the ucas are not necessary. I got them because i liked the boing and well because i am stupid. I was terrified of overextending a ball joint, I since. Discovered that was highly unlikely. They do look nice though.

OME 880s on my 04 gave me 1.25'' of lift now that they have been on for a year. At first they gave close to 2''.

883 springs work on both gens and were designed for both as well. They aren't exacty Cadillac ride worthy on the street if you don't have extra weight up front but I would do it the same way if I had the chance. The 881 springs and 883 springs are the same height but the 883s have about 50-60 lbs heavier spring rate. The 882s are 20mm longer than the 881s but have the same spring rate. Hope this helps

Bilsteins are a stronger monotube design that will resist fading much better than the twin tube design of the nitrochargers
