Okay, I realize OME recommends their 886 coil for the '05-up DC 4x4 models, but let me explain my train of thought.
I'm looking for a stiffer front suspension, but I don't want to gain much height. I'm running the size tire I want with the stock suspension, but I'd like to firm up the response and add some weight carrying capacity. I'm getting the leaf spring TSB done soon (dealer ordered parts yesterday) so I don't mind lifting the front around 1-1.5", but I really don't want the typical 2.5-3" most people strive for.
If I run the 885 (or possibly even 884) with the N140 front shocks, what do you think my net gain in height would be? Would the 1" shorter length of the 884 put me too far down in the N140's travel range to be safe?
Any real world experience with these non-standard combinations is appreciated!
