    What front lift do you have George?
    If its adjustable coil overs, crank em up a little.
    If its a set lift like 5100s or ome coils, add a small 1/4" thick top spacer to the strut.

    886 + top plate spacer? wow unless those coils are sagged, I would think that's almost at 4" no?

    This was my truck (granted before armor) with 886s + top plate spacer

    [​IMG]

    busted a CV boot ON ROAD with that set up. I took off the top plate spacer, added a bunch of armor and winch, and I'm still at 3"

    maybe its me but something doesnt seem right about 135 lbs dropping the front of an 886 supported truck. esp when the weight wouldnt be solely on the front end. or am i mistaken?

    I don't know if you notice my picture but I have a lot of weight in the front( ARB bumper with winch and outher stuff). Probably thats why.

    yeah that is why i asked if you added the bumper at the same time. i can easily see the bumper/winch combo bring your lift down a bit, just couldnt see the skids themselves doin that. if they did you would have to kick all passengers out of your truck when you go offroading cuz you would loose all your lift and that would suck.

    btw MJonAgs32 did you paint the coils in that pic?

    I'm running a 700# spring, might change it up. Even with armour and bumper it's a little harsh.

    I use a step bit. They are pricey as a single bit, but well worth the savings in time and aggravation.

    It also helps to know how to use a drill bit! The hotter u get the bit the faster it wears out! Sooooo the slower u drill, the longer the bit will last. Also use a lubricant any chance u get :thumbsup:
