OME 885 and OME Shocks to OME 885 and 5100s

Has anyone switched from OME 885 with Nitrocharger Sports to OME 885 with 5100s?

If you have done this, or the reverse, which had the better ride? complete OME setup or OME + Billie?

Please only reply if you have actually run both of these setups.


thanks

I've heard the OME shocks run better then the 5100's but then again the 885's were meant to go with the OME shocks so thats probably why.

Bump

Also the reason I am asking is because I just installed OME 885 with billies set at zero on my buddy's 4th gen 4runner. The ride felt smoother up front but I know it is not apples to apples.

I have 5100's up front with 885's and I like the ride. Its a little stiffer then stock but not bad at all. Just make sure to set your shocks at 0" height.

I'm not wanting to feel every little bump in the road....I understnad that it's not going to ride like a Cadillac but...I think you get what I'm saying.
What about the notorious "Taco Lean"...what did you do to remedy that?

No your not going to feel every little bump in the road its not that stiff. I didnt remedy the Taco Lean cause it never bugged me and you can barely notice it.

There's probably a reason why the OME shocks cost almost twice as much. I don't think I would make that swap.

I had 5125's and now NitroChargers. I prefer the ride of the NitroChargers.
