I doubt you'll even get the CO assembled with it at the 2.5 setting with 886's. I would go higher than the .85 setting. It's going to be stiff as hell.

My bad...typo on my part. I mean I wouldn't go higher than .85 on the 5100 with the 886 spring. And what I meant was I think it is going to hard as hell to compress a 3" lift spring and then try to put it on the 5100 2.5" setting. Plus, you will get way more than 3" of lift which is going to create serious problems. Either keep the 5100 at the .85 or lower, or just use the OME shock. I would suggest just using the OME because it is valved for that shock.

so the 886 is a lift spring. wasn't sure on that. no need to adjust the shock at all then right? just need one with the right travel.

Yes, it's a lift spring. The OME or 5100 with both have the right travel.

I would go with the OME shock over the 5100's. OME only recommends using their shocks with their coils. If you do use the 5100's, only set them above the lowest stock notch.
