Which OME Springs (885s or 886s)?
 
Which OME Springs are best for the setup below?

07 Access Cab
BruteForce Hybrid Front Bumper
9500lb Superwinch

I'm looking for about 2" of lift. I don't want driveline vibs and I don't want to have to buy UCAs. I also want to be able to use the 5100s I have on my truck now.

Thanks everyone!

Winch is 90lbs. Not sure about the bumper.

Well , that would certainly be a deciding factor , perhaps a pm to the vendor is in order

Let's say it weighs 150-170lbs.

I know they suggest the 886s for over 200lbs of weight in the front, but I only want about 2" of lift.

Well , you could go 885's and if they don't provide enough lift you could add some 1/4" or 1/2" top plate spacers

886's will give you 3+ inches, so for that alone you're choice is clear.....

Goo 885's and get spacers if it isnt enough. 886's will not give you 3+ of lift though. I have them on a DCL:B without even the factory bumper on there and barely get 3". With a bumper and winch you wont get 3" with the 886's

I'm slightly over 3 with about 140 lbs on the front between winch and skids.

886

Just the 886 with no weight in the front at all. No alum factory bumper, no skid plate, no plastic bumper cover.

mh.meier 11-22-2012 04:32 PM

886's

krimson 11-22-2012 04:35 PM

886x

For what it's worth, I have zero driveline vibes - although I do have LR UCA's which really make a big difference. My vote would be to do it right and go 886 with that much weight.

I agree LR UCA's are a good way to go , I have them , but they don't factor into driveline vibrations

Not vibes, but not being able to get more than zero degrees caster made freeway driving interesting. LR's make it track like stock again with 2.8 degrees. Definitely a must have IMO.
