Toytec C/Os vs. OME 885s

Im gonna be getting a lift in the next few weeks and i had a question ive never seen addressed here. I notice that OME has different springs (884,885,886) for different amounts of weight on the front of your truck (bumpers, winches). I am leaning towards the Toytec C/Os but I know nothing about the actual springs it comes with. As of now there will be no added weight up front on my truck but in the future I will add an aftermarket bumper and hopefully a winch. Will the Toytec C/Os be able to support the added weight like the 885 or 886s would?

Yes, they can. This nice thing about the coilovers is that they're adjustable! So, you put a heavy bumper and winch on the front, you can just crank your coilovers back up!

But I think the TT coilovers use 650# Eiback springs.

Im thinking bout getting the Toytech C/O's for my truck. I currently have a 6" procomp lift with stock shocks and springs. I just dont want to pay a grand for the procomp ones, and I've heard so much good stuff bout the toytech's. Should I go for it....will it work?

I havent heard much good about Procomp (actually, never), so the Toytec's are probably the way to go for ya.

The OME 886's are 650#, but 1" longer than stock. they should only be used with the OME n140s shocks. If the coilovers are in fact a 650# spring, I would suggest getting them. Many people that have them are really happy with them. Im a huge OME fan, as they have proven their durability with me and on many other trucks, but you cant go wrong either way.

The 885 spring rate is 600#. The 884's are the same, but a 10mm shorter spring.

Hey Chris, I'm not too sure what sprint rate the toytecs run, but they are longer then stock. at least 1" if I recall, probably a little more.

Chris,
So if I install the OEM 885 spring with 5100 billy shocks, what height will I get? How much higher do I need to lift the rear to get it leveled? I'm thinking blocks instead of AAL.

you'll get about 3" of lift out of that setup. But, you will need to set your Billys to the stock setting. Go AAL in the back... blocks are garbage

Which spring will lift the front just about or close to 2.5"?

which aal? 1.5" or 2". Won't AAL stiffen the ride? Compared to blocks, which would keep the original ride?
