    Suggestion to your setup: Use Bilstein 5125 to the rear because they offer more travel and add extended brake lines.

    New shocks means better ride. If you have the $$, go for it. If not, you can always do it later.

    Alright. So if I go with the OME rear shocks would I need to grab the OME leaf set and bushings etc?

    would you rather go with the toytec 3" lift lift OME 885 or would you buy the separate parts?

    I got the TSB done on my rear springs and then used Toytec 2" spacers on the front. It lifted my rig about 2 to 2 1/2 inches/ Rides nice too. Just a thought. Good luck

    I'm gonna stick to the stock bumper, if anything I might add a bull guard but nothing to serious there. Would I be fine with 884 or 885 OME's.

    Upgraded setup for now..
    Rear:
    Bilsteins 5125s or OME N120s
    Also added brake lines. Then I'm fine rght?

    Also with the wheels would I need spacers? I know I'm gonna trim with 285s

    wat?
    $500 for a 3" spacer w/ install is a rip off...u can buy a 3" spacer for less than $100...then the aal or blocks for the rear...its simple stuff to do.

    Here is a better setup:

    Front:5100 Adjustable Coil over (if you can afford it), if not 5100s will do just fine.

    Rear: AAL if you have not had the rear TSB done with 5125s and brake lines.

    With the coil overs you will get lots of lift. I am running mine under 3" but have lots of space to move up if I so choose to. You can click my galley for pics. I think Vege-Taco is running 3" on his rig.

    imma go with the 5125s rears. But I'm not sure where I can get a good deal.

    Btw I can't decide if I should go with the toytec 3" that comes with the 885, aal, spacer (299.99). Or should I buy the parts separate at wheelers for the OME coil set (156), aal (77.50), and spacer? Not sure which one

    FWIW, my 885's gave me right at 3" lift with no spacers after they settled. Im running 5100 rear shocks and seem to have no flex limitations or "topping out" of the rear shocks. Instead of getting a longer rear break line, I reworked the existing braket, and have plenty of slack at full droop. IMHO, the 5100 rear shocks are a perfect match for the OME N140S/885's up front.

    I agree... 3" spacer is going to nothing but destroy your stock suspension compents/coilovers, and ride terrible... You can buy a set of adjustable bilstein's for the front for under 200 bux and keep factory ride, my buddy just put a set on his truck and they ride great. That big of a spacer is nothing but bad news:
    http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=110876

    Oh, and $500 is a complete rip-off! It literally takes 30 minutes to pull your coilovers and reinstall, very simple

    If you pay $500 for spacers for the front, please let me know the next time you are going to buy ANYTHING, not just truck parts. I'll sell it to you for 5x the cost. I need to make a little extra cash.

    dude $500 is a STEAL!!! Labor to install the front coilovers @ my local dealer is $1600, just for one side:D
