Well I was planning on getting some 886 coils to replace my 884's. But if we are about the same height, i'll just stay.

I was told by toytec that it would correct the sag I am seeing. My truck was level after the lift was installed but now has the factory rake back. I called them a few months after I purchased and was informed that they now reccomend the 886 coils for Double cab trucks, but when I purchased my lift the 884's were thought to be ok. I understand the load bearing concept, but thought lifting the front was called for. Now I think the rear may just be a tad too high.

Maybe your bumper is playing a part in the height?

Our numbers are very similar.

Thats kinda what I was looking into.
Everyone on Tw was saying 885's but toytec said 884's. Then when I called back they said double cabs were 886. I was like wtf. But hey she wheels fine.
