Removing my CB drop puts me at :

Difference at rear is 2 degrees

Difference at front is 2.4 degrees

So overall ifference of 0.4 degrees which I think is what you were alluding to strive for

I'll drive it like this for a bit and see how it behaves

so looks like i am going to pull the trigger on the full OME setup, my question; there are plans in the future for a bumper, should i go with the 886's now, or get the 885's and upgrade when i get my bumper.....?

I would get the 885's then upgrade the springs later. Then again, how soon is the "FUTURE"?

Do the 885's then. Or wait a couple weeks and see if you find a setup in the BUY SELL TRADE (Trading Pit) area for a better price. Hell, you might find a KING or ICON setup for the same price used as the OME kit...

I have the 885x with 5100's set at zero and the Toytec top spacer kit installed and it started making a clunk/thud sound from the passenger side going over bumps. Took it to the Truck Shop here in San Diego and they told me that my shocks were maxed out and that's why it made that noise. I had the spacers removed and the noise went away. Could the 5100's be valved differently depending on where you buy them or is it just my truck that can't seem to achieve this lift. I know a lot of people running the same set up with no problem.

Nope. Not done. I have a few hundred # in the bed I need to take out and I am on a hill in the pic so it looks bad still with the spacing.

The skids will balance it out nicely. Once I can afford them...

I got their progressive AAL. Those are the u-bolts and all that I can't use since I have the u-bolt flip.

Ok, I need a picture request. Does anybody have a pic of the OME kit installed without any spacers up front 885's for DCSB and 265/75/16 tires?

I have 885's and 265/75/16's, but I installed the top plate spacers, so this pic is close to what you're looking for...see my pics for more

Not IMHO. If you were running the wrong shocks it could be at full extension, but that isn't any issue if you bought the kit. I didn't run a bumper or heavy skid for a year, but I kept it on the pavement.

^^This. I imagine the ride was a lot harsher without the extra weight.
