OME 884 front coils question

Hesitated to ask this question but my mechanical knowledge is limited - bear with me please .

Toytec lift (3") delivered today. Consists of front OME 884 coils and rear Add-A-Leaf, along with Bilstein 5100 shocks for the rear (already have rear TSB leaf upgrade).

Front already has Bilstein 5100's set at 1.75". I understand those should be
set at zero. So are the OME 884 coils longer than stock, thus providing 3'' of front lift?

Thanks for the educating me...I hope.

I assume you're talking about this product here: 3" lift

The 884 coils provide 2" of lift. The kit mentions using the spacers for a full 3" of lift up front, the spacers would be 1/2" but NET a gain of 3" when installed. It sounds like you would set the 5100s to 0, base level and build from there.

I would recommend asking toytec to provide details on what you need to do to install though, they should have final word on how to install their product.

hope that helps.

Spacers included in kit. I printed the install instructions from PDF file - Toytec doesn't include paper instructions.

What you explained in your post is the confirmation I was looking for. Guess I was on the right track after all.

Appreciate you responding - and in language I could understand. THANKS!
