ome 885 install

Ok so i just received my ome 885s and top plate spacer, just curious as to how hard the install is. I currently am running the bilsteins 5100's.

It's fairly easy as far as the off/on goes, only 8 nuts to deal with + lug nuts. Your only variable will be getting the new springs/spacer on the billies whether you do it or have someone else do it. IMO spring compressors aren't fun but if you get a beefy one and be safe it's pretty straight forward.

I recently saw a real good thread on here with pictures: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...mtrdsport.html. I also did a written step by step how I do it here starting at post #43: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/sus...igh-low-3.html . It's kind of rediculous but I tried to write from the perspective that installer knows very little about how to do this, install for dummies.

If I can give you some advice, I would hold off on the top plate spacer until you see how much lift the 885's alone give you.

Also, it is pretty simple, if you are comfortable with disassembling your truck then you can just take the stock coilovers off and take them down to a shop and have them assembled, its what I did. Took about an hour.

I just put my 885's and top spacer on this weekend along with LR UCA. I highly recommend to take the struts to a shop for the spring compressor. The ones you rent looked like it was about to snap in half.
