Bilstein 5100's and OME 885 coils?

I already have the Billy 5100's arriving this week sometime. Got to thinking that I may just upgrade the coils while I am at it. Plan to add the 1/4 spacer to eliminate the taco lean as well. thoughts on this?

Suggestions on the best coil and 5100 combo? I would like to achieve a decent lift, but maintain a decent ride. Anyone running the 885's with Bilstein 5100's? infor appreciated.

thanks in advance-

Well you can and thats what I am running are the 885's with the 5100's. You have to leave the 5100's at the stock height setting since the coils will be doing the lift. I would suggest going with the 886's if you are the long bed though.

Are you running a spacer with that as well like everyone elese seems to be doing or just the 5100 and 885.. Just wondering what height you get without a spacer.
I just ordered 885s for my 5100s and wondering if I should get spacers as well.

Ordered the Eibach Coils

Will run with the Toytec/Eibach coils and the 5100's set at .85. Should prove to be exactly what I am after. I am hoping to stay under the radar an not have to have UCA's for caster and camber.

Also ordered the 1/4" spacer to remove the Tacoma lean. Figured might as well add it while I am having the work done. Thanks to Jen for her help today with my order.

I'm also running 885's with 5100's.. Ive had the setup for about 3 weeks and i'm overall happy with it. It did good off road.

No spacer though. I just set the 5100's at 0" and got close to 3" of lift.

Ditto, that is my setup for 6 mos now and real pleased with the lift/ride on DCLB. Included LR UCA's for alignment ease.

I've got 5100's set at stock height with 885 coils plus a 13mm spacer on both sides and an extra 1/4" on the drivers side. It rides a little rough but its much better then the 5100's set at 2.5". In retrospect I wish i went with all OME stuff right from the beginning

Can you run the 885 coils with the stock uca's? I've heard mixed input on this. This is the setup I am planning on doing within the next couple of weeks and want to make sure it'll work ok.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You can, but your alignment wont be in spec.
