OME 882 vs 883

I have recently installed an 80lb steel bumper on my 95 extended cab 2.7L with billie 5100s cranked all the way up. I have lost some ride height after the addition and I would like to regain it, if possible.
It seems that the OME 883 has a stiffer spring rate (103N/mm) than the 880-882 springs (88N/mm), but it is 20mm ( a little less than an inch) shorter than the 882. Which one will give me more lift???
I plan on mounting a wench when finances permit and I am not afraid of a stiff ride.
Any input would be appreciated.

Do you realize how funny your spelling error is? "Mounting a wench" means mounting a prostitute.

I think you meant "mounting a winch". Biiiggg difference.

As for your question. I would trust what OME states about the springs. At least for the 2nd gens, they are very descriptive about what situation each spring choice works best in as well as how much lift you can expect.

Your a 4 banger access cab so I would expect the lift numbers to be a little higher for you. You can also get a 10mm top plate spacer to get up to that 3" mark.

I have seen them for this application, though at first I was under the impression they were specificly for 4runners

http://eastsidecustomtruck.com/i-182...ls-toytec.html

Maybe I meant "I dont mind a stiff ride...(when)mounting a wench"... but that would be another forum...

this forum seems only to add to my confusion instead of bring any sort of clarity... I think I maybe better off just reading old posts compared to asking specific questions...

All the info I have is they are the same size and spring rate as the 884, and 885 springs, just shorter. They are made for the FJ, 4Runner, and fit the second gen Tacoma. I think that link is a typo, as I see no where else stating they fit the first gen Tacomas.

Okay, back to tech here. I ran in the back of the shop and did some experimentation. The 880-881-882 are one family of coils for the '95-'04 Tacoma & '96-'02 4Runner, this family of vehicles takes the N91S or N91SC front shocks. The 883-884-885-886 are a different family of coils for the '05-'09 Tacoma, '03-'09 4Runner, and '07-'09 FJ Cruiser, this family of vehicles takes the N140S front shock. I successfully slipped an 884 coil spring over an N91S shock, so theoretically this setup could work. However, I will put this out there ARB USA will not warranty this setup at all, so if you run this and it tears stuff up your SOL. They're on to you're shenanigans....

My main concern here is with the varying spring rates between the two families of coils. The 880-881-882 coils all have a spring rate of 500 lbf/in, and they all have varying free heights (unloaded). The 883-884-885 group has a spring rate of 590 lbf/in and the 886 has a spring rate of 660 lbf/in. Again, all of these coils have varying spring heights to deal with loads.

With this information I have doubts about the N91S shock designed to hold a coil with the spring rate of 500 lbf/in could hold a spring with a rate of 590 lbf/in without tearing something up. I'm not saying that it's not possible, I'm just saying why chance it. At best it will shorten the life of the shock, at worst it will tear the shock apart by topping it out all the time.

Hopefully this helps. Let me know if you need more details. I'll do what I can.
