I remember having the 884s + top plate spacer, and test drove someone's truck who had the 886s (same OME nitros as me also), and it felt the exact same as mine, except his didn't sag like how my 884s did. It was a no brainer for me.
Thanks for your help. Like you, I also installed the 886 and top plate (learn the hard way). I still have my stock bumper on and just tore my CV boot. I ran the 886 and top plate for about 7 months without a problem until now. I didnt mind the ride/stiffness.
So now my truck is sitting in my garage with the torn CV boot. I'm asking all these questions so I can decide if I only need to take the top spacer out and be done or if I need to replace the entire coil all together (for an 885). This means-to-an-end is to not tear my CV again.
I would prefer to not have to replace the 886 coil for the 885 if I don't need to. A lot less work if I could just remove the top plate spacer and be done. I just wasn't sure if the CV would tear again if I kept the 886 on. The goal is to not tear the CV again.
