Aww yea 5100's & 885's!

UPS just dropped these off, can't wait to install them tomorrow. I plan on setting them at .85" with the 885's like "usnaclee's" taco, but I also plan to use the 1/4" steel top plate spacers (not the actual coil spring spacers) that came with my REvtek lift. All on stock UCA's (yea I know). Should get just under 4" of lift. Anyone else done this?

You realize you will have NO down travel....right? Good possibility that if you hit a bump, you could break your shocks too.....Which means, you will get the oppertunity to see your truck on a flat bed trailor.

Sounds like someone needs to suggest a 'Plan B' to the OP.

Whoa thanks for the advice my taco brothers but this has been done before (minus the 1/4" top plate spacer). There's a thread on here using the same combo also set .85" without the top plate spacer he got 3.35" of lift and reported good ride quality. Also I have a Prerunner not a 4X4 so CV's aren't a factor. Their should be plenty of shock rebound at this setting vs. a stock spring set at 2.5". The only difference here is that I plan on adding the 1/4" top plate spacer, which does not compress the spring at all, for a little added lift. If anything if something fails it oughta be my balljoints. I'll report back tomorrow after the install.

BTW these springs only give 1.75-2" of lift sans the top plate spacer sold on Toytec. 3" is only achieved with the top plate.

Again I appreciate all the concern. But if anyone else was crazy enough to do this please feel free to chime in.
