lifts

ok so i have 2.5 coil spacer with diff drops.
i need new coils i just put a bumper on my truck so it sags a little in the front due to the weight....
any ideas of what i could do or add to the front to pick it up?
im looking at the coilover lifts from king. the adjustable ones but does that mean i have to take off my spacers and diff drops.
they are up in price as well!

OME 886 coils up front should fix the sag...I think there like 180 bucks or less.


Edit: Heres a link...assuming you have a 2nd gen.

He's looking to eliminate the front sag due to the new front bumper...the 886s would work right?

OME coils have always been known to sag on the 1st gen tacos...

if within financial reach, go for the Kings like you initially said... you can always crank the coils up when need be, and you can revalve them as needed to soften/stiffen the ride....

yes, you would take the whole shock/coil assembly off and replace it with the King coilovers... the Kings are a better ride...

if you pushed it, you could crank up to 3.25" but your kidneys would kill you... 2.5" to 2.75" is comfortable... 3" is doable...
