OME Coils v.s. 5100's

Would I get a better ride from OME 885 coils on my 5100's up front rather than just cranking them up to 2.5? Also if I did get 885 coils what would I need to put in the back to make it sit level?

I would think it would ride better. I have OME coils on 5100's set at 0 and it rides great. You could get a 2" aal for the rear to level.

885s all day

no, the 5100 rear shocks are designed to work with up to 3" of lift.

5100 in the rear will ride fine...

OME coils will ride a lot better than the billies alone...btw I have OME 885 for salw

How would this look riding on my stock terrible rugged trail tires for a while until I can get new tires?

Do you have over 100 pounds of weight on the front of your truck and normally keep it fully loaded with 4 passengers? If not get the 884's. You can crank the Bilsteins up to .84 if its not enough lift for you.
