OME lift kit from Toytec questions...please help a noooob

OK....so my questions are...
1. If I use this kit on my 2009 taco DBLC what is the ball park frt lift height i'll get w/o using the spacers on top (use if 3" wanted) cuz I dont want a full 3"....just using the OME shocks/coils????

2. Can I get away w/ using the 884 springs or do i HAVE to use the 885's???? My idea behind this is to have a smoother ride and prob will never add a winch etc...but may do some occasional true off roading...

I will be using the 1.5" tsb aal since I already had the dealership do the tsb service around year and a half ago..

Thanks for any info/help
Adam

cool...this sounds like what im aiming for....
in your opinion....doing the frt's same as yours w/ the tsb aal 1.5" give me some rake???
also would you recomend using the 884's for cusher ride?

Ive been killing myself over this for entire weekend and was considering just doing 5100's x4 and the 1.5"aal setting the frt at 1.75" but i dont think that will give me the look i want in frt...

asuming i get 2.5" out of the 885's....do i really need to get UCA's?
and if the spring rate is same but coil is 10mm less...then that's approx .25" less lift and may be better for angles...am i correct?

No UCA's needed for 884's as you will only get 2" of lift
