For added weight in the front, wouldn't it be better to get stronger/better springs?

Please correct me if I'm wrong...

886s might be too much unless the bumper is an ARB. The guy I got my lift from had a Relentless bumper with winch, BudBuilt skids & Relentless sliders. He put the 886s on when he got the bumper & winch but they were too stiff so he went back to the 885s with a 1/4" spacer.

If that Warn product is all you are adding to the front , you could probably just go OME 885's , and OME Nitrochargers or Bilstein 5100's .

If you do go with the OME 886 coils , go with the OME Nitrocharger shocks , not the 5100's

Why don't you just put on a front receiver and put on the winch when needed? Less $ and time on maintenance, and your winch and cables will last longer.
