OME 886s and Nitros

So, I recently installed an ARB bumper and M9000 winch on my 09 DCLB Tacoma. Then I had the recommended OME 886 coils and Nitrochargers installed to give the front end the support it needs. Not sure what other people are finding with this set up, but it seems very harsh to me. I drove it offroad today and it was rough, particularly on washboard. I'm also noticing a lot of clunking on small sharp bumps and on the backsides of speedbumps. Sounds like something is loose down there.

Anybody have any suggestions, advice, experiences with this situation. I'm thinking I chose the wrong springs. Anybody running a heavy plate bumper and winch using the 885 coils.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Steve

Mine works fine. I would look in to the steering TSB for the clunk / rattle.

Pugga, I'm running the Deluxe Winch Bumper. I did notice the clunking more on the driver's side. I'll have a look at the TSB.
