OME 885 and 5100s

So I'm ordering that setup soon from toytec, do I need anything else? And how do I mount them?

Thanks

:Sigh:
Are you ordering them pre assembled? You will want a 1/4 top plate spacer for the drivers side to correct taco lean. Try searching, start with the stickies. ill help you out.

Sorry if i come off as being a dick, but try do some research before starting a thread. I have no problems answering your questions but if you literally look at toytecs website for a few minutes you will see that you can have them pre assembled for $100. It will make the install much easier because you dont have to deal with spring compressors. You should also consider UCAs if you are trying to lift a full 3". Read thru some threads and stickies and you will be able to ask more specific questions and more people will be willing to give you advice

Ok I don't need help mounting them and I ask simple questions because when it comes to asking certain specific questions everyone has a bunch of different opinions so it makes it so complicated, I called toytec and asked If all I needed was the coils as shocks and she said yes so Im making sure on here cause there's way more input then 1 lady that sounded like she didn't know, so your not being a dick but I wanted to make sure

Khaos- when are you putting them on?

Try 884x then. All the vendors sell 885x now, you will have to find them used if you want the old 885s

This is from 2010, original post can be found here. http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/toy...5-vs-885x.html. Just trying to make sure you are informed before you purchase anything.

You can probably expect 2.5 inches of lift or more from 885x's. 884x's will be closer to 2-2 1/4"

Thats strange, i might be wrong but you should double check that.
For the shocks/springs follow the stickies is the suspension section to remove the coilover assembly. Chris4x4 an bj moose have good ones. Then take it apart

Safest way- bring the stocks ones and new ones to a shop have them do it.

Safe way- rent, buy, borrow spring compressors. Compress the stock spring, remove the top not nut, take off top plate. Slowly decompress the coils. Pay attention to how it went together, assemble the new ones using the stock top plate in the reverse order using your spring compressor.

Not so safe way- no spring compressor method http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=vkVLB...%3DvkVLBOnAifc
