OME 885's with 5100's at .85???

Would it be fine to run 885 OME coils with 5100's set at .85 in the front? I know most people run the 885's without presetting the 5100's at anything, but would setting it at .85 with 885 coils be fine? Are there gonna be any problems? And how much lift would that yield on a DCSB? Thanks

5100s with 885s

it would give you a little over 3" in the front with that setup. I just called downsouth motorsports and ordered that setup for my 12 DC trd. the technician on the phone said i would get a little over 3 inches in the front. I also ordered toytec 2" aal for the rear. i may have to go with a 1" block too but we will see. ill post pics next week if i can get it installed in time.

You should be OK - I know somebody running this setup without issues.

How old are the 885's and are they the old 885s or the new 885X coils? Some people have set their 5100's to .85 mostly due to added weight of a plate bumper and/or winch or because the old 885s would sag over time and they wanted to regain some lift. Brand new, I wouldn't put 885s on 5100's set at .85. I'd look into the top plate spacers instead as that should put you at 3" of lift.

I just put a set of lightly used 885's (I think they are X's) on mine w/ the 5100's at 0. It definately looks like I got about 3" out of them. I had 3" spacers on the stock shocks/coils & it seems to sit about 1/2" higher now.

I put some old OME 885s on my 5100s at the .85 setting and I have about 3 inches of lift.

So yes you will be fine.

I'd advise you to keep them at the "0" setting. If you do not have after market UCA's..

Im installing mine today. Im 1" higher in the rear stock. I just need 3" in the front to go with my 2" aal. My coils are 885x coils so maybe ill try the 0" setting first.

Unhappy

My install was unsuccessful, the coil spring compressor I picked up from auto zone was not strong enough to compress the 885x coils. The compressor was barley strong enough to compress the factory coils back on the stock shocks. Plus I couldn't get the stock spring to fit back into the the rubber washer thing on top of the stock assembly. So I put everything back together and my truck is pulling to the right, and now I'm calling around to get quotes on installation. I spent way to much time on it and I'm tired of jacking with it.

Do it this way. No spring compressor needed. I installed my 885x springs on my stock shocks, then installed 5100s a week later using the same method. Works like a charm. And I had done it using a spring compressor about 4 times in the past on my other Tacoma.

I just did exact combination you are doing. 885x set at zero. I got a hefty 3 inches up front. I had new leafs built for the rear. My alignment numbers were decent but my caster is way out. I do not notice anything driving. But for sure I will notice some wear down the road if I do not replace the UCA
But I think you will get what you need set at zero
I am 4x4 as well

Caster can be out and not affect tire wear. Toe and camber are the 2 that can eat up a set of tires.

Threads a little old but whatever... What about 885's with 5100's at .85 with top plate spacers? Not sure if you considered that or not or if it was implied that you would get them. I want a full 3" and I wouldn't mind a tad over. I'm thinking that would put it well over 3".
