Could I put on Billies set at 2.5" with my 884 coils?

or would that make my front end super high? What would I have to do to just have 2.5" of lift in the front if I got Billies? Would I just simply take off the 884's? Thanks.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Don't stack lifts! Anything that gets you over 3" of lift (without a drop bracket or SAS) will destroy your ball joints and/or make the ride unbearably rough and/or top out and damage your shocks.

Set the billes @ 0 with the 884's & get 2" of lift or remove the 884's & set the billies @ 2.5". May be able to set billies @ .75 & run the 884's not sure on that... PM Chris 4X4 that guy knows everything. Good luck!

Get some stockers should't be hard to find on here with all the lifts people are running.

If I remove the 884's and set the billies at 2.5, don't I still need coils to go with them?

Yes, he meant remove the 884's and use your stock coils if you want to set the Billies at 2.5.

Don't set the billies at .85 and run 884 coils! It's a really bad idea. If you set the 5100s at 2.5 id be REALLY interested in the 884s!

Got it. Thanks for the help. I'm going to keep my 884's for a while. I'm just thinking ahead.

Just stay with the 884's and the billes at zero, you get ~2" of lift yet keep the full movement of the shock. I bet you will be very happy with that setup. Anymore lift and you step up into another price range completely.

That's a good point, you will need new UCA's to get a decent alignment if you go above 2.5" also. If the 1st offer falls threw I'll take those coils.
