Thanks for the input man. I think that's what I'm leaving towards!

If you're not happy with what they gave you... talk to them. They may be able to send you different stuff in exchange. They were very helpful for me when I ended up with the wrong rear shocks... even after I installed them.

Confused

Alright guys, I've got a little predicament about my 5100's and 885's. I've searched everywhere and can't find an answer. I ordered and received yesterday my lift-5100's, eibach 885 coils, top plate spacer, and Icon UCA'S. I keep reading that the eibachs, even with the 5100's set at .85, will not give me a full 3"s of lift. I need this to continue running my 33's. do I need to buy OME 885's and sell my eibach coils? Or can I get the lift I need out of the eibachs?

Check this thread bud. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ease-help.html. 5100 at .85 with eibach will put you at 2.5 and more than likely be a stiffer ride but thats just from my research

Well who feels like a fucking dumbass? THIS GUY!!!!!

I thought I had ordered OME coils but in the box I got there was a cardboard divider that said "eibach". Without even thinking, I assumed I had ordered the eibach. I started looking at my order and I actually did order the OME. So I don't know why Toytec put that cardboard that says eibach but whatever. The sticker on the coil says "OME 885x" so everything is good.

a lot of people run spacers on the site..I say throw'em on and see how it sits with the 885's... YOu may like how it sits and it will save you time and money in selling the 885 and buying 884's... JMO.

I have some 884's that I am going to install to see what kind of lift they give me on my 03 Tundra. They might be for sale or trade for your 885s??

Spacers with my 885? No it's already too high, 884 would give me less lift then 885

LOL.. Spacers won't raise the height or suspension of your truck it will just push the wheels out a little bit and the height/stance of the truck may look okay when you do that.. I say put them on and put some pics up..

Well finally got the 884s. It's funny, taking them out of the box, they look almost identical to the 885s. I can't even tell a height difference. Installed them but have hadn't a chance to measure yet I see the difference in right height yet.
