Yea, but I'm only looking for 2" of lift. Going for an overland rig, not rock crawler. Would UCAs be suggested at that amount of lift?

Do add a top plate spacer do you have to breakdown the coil over?

You are in a pickle. I have a brute force, xrc8 and ran 885s with 5100s and it sagged about 7/8" afterwards. Before the weight I had about 2.5" of front lift. I'd go 885s and 1/4" spacers

Thanks large. You're also a DC and I've always read that there is a difference between DC and AC when it has come to lift height. I don't know if it is substantial or not though.

What's the difference between the "1/4" Thick Aluminum Top Spacer" and the "10mm Lift Enhancer Kit" available at wheeler's?

10mm - http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05upometaco.htm
1/4" - http://www.wheelersoffroad.com/05uptacomasuspmisc.htm

One is significantly more expensive and one gives more lift, but how do they differ?

The 10mm spacer kit is a pair and includes longer studs , providing 5/8-3/4" of additional lift

The 1/4" plate is sold as a single , no longer studs ( not needed ) and provides 3/8-1/2" of lift

Okay thanks. And to correct tacoma lean would I buy two 1/4" plates for the driver side? And I would assume that would require longer studs?

Sorry for my ignorance, this is the weird side of TW I don't understand yet.

I think he wants 1/2" on the driver and 1/4" on the passenger. No need to stack two 1/4" spacers, just buy a 1/4" and a 1/2" spacer from Toytec, assuming you have the taco lean (I didn't)

As I said in the original post, I was hoping to use the 5100s I have now. I have heard that you shouldn't use 5100s when running the 886s.

My bad , I didn't go back and look

My point being , with OME shocks , you can correct taco lean with the OME 5mm trim packer that goes on the bottom of the shock , below the coil and then just put 1/4" top plate spacers in both driver and passenger

No , you shouldn't run 5100's with 886's IMO

I'm no forum Nazi. Didn't mean to come off that way if I did.

But, you're saying I can't use that 5mm trim packer with 5100s it sounds like?

No , the 5mm trim packer only works with OME shocks

So going with 885s, would you suggest the 1/4" spacer or the 10mm spacer under these criteria:

-Hybrid bumper - 125-150lbs
-90lb winch
-With a desired 2-2.5" of lift
