Thanks for the info. I'll have to get one.

And was there something about 1/4" spacer for 1/2" of adjustment?

Or am I full of crap on that one, too?

Anyone got a stock truck without the Rear TSB done or heavy ARB on the front? Would be nice to have a base comparison. Hmm, anyone live close to a dealer and wanna go steal some measurements?

no different than preloading them with a spacer . They only give 2.5" of lift alone. Plus, mine are 5 years old so they are well broken in and sagged.

Well then I apologize for my ignorance. I was under the assumption that 885's (some at least) deliver 3" of lift.

They provide 3" with a 1/4" spacer, but even with a spacer they will sag below 3". You'll end up with about 2.75" or even 2.5" after they are broken in.

I thought they changed them so that they didn't sag as much, old 885 new 885x.

How about preloading with a heavy bumper like ARB or Relentless?
