well, suprise suprise, the 884s are giving me almost the exact same lift as the 885s... they looked identical to me right out of the box.

no i dont. but i know its right. got the 5100 on the 0 setting, all bushings and washers in correct place, coil alligned correctly on the shock bottom plate part. not upsidedown or anything like that.
(and i didn't do install like you, did the other method without coil compressor)

Maybe thats why, you should try to remove it yourself and try the method I did if your having that much trouble and you have time

hmmm i dont really see why that would make a difference. im not going to go rent a coil compressor just to do it that way. that way scares me. i feel much safer doing it this way. so idk man.

OR MAYBE get the coils off and take it to a tire shop and have them assemble the new ones for you. Im just trying to think of ways to help

coils were labled 884x on them. standing side my side the 885x they look the same, therefor giving me about the same lift.

Something has to be wrong in the assembly for you to be getting a full inch more lift than anybody else

The 885's should be 10mm longer than the 884's. You should get 3/4" - 1" more lift from the 885's.
