OME/Bilstein settings??

O.K. I recently bought (have not arrived, yet) a set of OME 885's of a member. I also have a new set of 5100's. Since the ad for the 885's say they give 2" of lift, should I set my 5100's at .85" to stay close to my 2.5" of lift?? Or if I should I set the 5100's at 2.5", how do I go about this???

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The OME's will give closer to 3" lift. Leave the shocks on the lower setting.

I was told the OME springs were redesigned a couple of years ago, and they now give the advertised lift.

Seems OME is giveing 2 stories. I was told that they changed the way they manufacture their springs, and that the springs are pre stressed (scragged) to eliminate sagging issues. Another story is that this has not happened, and they are still makeing the springs the same way.
My springs settled in and gave 3" lift. PackerfanXD's springs gave 3"+ lift. (both 885's). Rpoint16's 885's settled and gave him only 1.75" lift......Im thinking that OME HAS changed the way they make their springs, but there are still old stock floating around......
