I have a 98 2.7L Reg Cab - I want to fit 33s.
Just got a complete OME suspension with 881 coils. I would like to have a full 3" lift or close to it to clear 33s
My understanding is the 881 coils should lift the front approx 2" maybe 2.25" with 4cyl.
The rear dakar leaf springs should lift the approx 2.25".
I was thinking about adding a Top Spacer kit to bring to 3" or close. I have two options:
1. Toytec Top Plate Spacer kit which raises it approx 3/4"
2. Wheelers Off-road Spacer kit for about 1/2"
What about the rear??
1. Add a leaf to raise about 1" for 3.25" Lift in rear - Is that too much? If so, why? My concerns would be will the OME shocks be long enough for that....probably not. Will the drive shaft angles be too much?If I went with that I would go with the Toytec 3/4" Spacer so It is about 3" in Front.
2. Other options for rear?
3. Leave the rear alone and go with Wheelers spacer kit for 2.5-2.75" in front and 2.25" in Rear? (it probably would be 2.75" in front cause it is a 4 cyl) Does anyone have pics with this kind of setup? I personally like a little bit of rake or level. My concern is everyone will say it will be level but I have seen some pics where they say it is level and the front is a bit higher than the rear and it looks stupid.
The truck is a daily driver.....
Thanks for the advice!
