    anywayssss. So i think im going to order up those 884's. You guys recommend i dont put up my 885's for sale until i get my new ones in?

    What do you guys think about some 1.25 wheel spacers? i am liking the stance these give on trucks =)

    a lot of people run spacers on the site..I say throw'em on and see how it sits with the 885's... YOu may like how it sits and it will save you time and money in selling the 885 and buying 884's... JMO.

    I have some 884's that I am going to install to see what kind of lift they give me on my 03 Tundra. They might be for sale or trade for your 885s??

    Yes...the Tacoma coil will work on the Tundra if a Tacoma spring isolator is used...

    LOL.. Spacers won't raise the height or suspension of your truck it will just push the wheels out a little bit and the height/stance of the truck may look okay when you do that.. I say put them on and put some pics up.. :cool:

    Well finally got the 884s. It's funny, taking them out of the box, they look almost identical to the 885s. I can't even tell a height difference. Installed them but have hadn't a chance to measure yet I see the difference in right height yet.

    no i dont. but i know its right. got the 5100 on the 0 setting, all bushings and washers in correct place, coil alligned correctly on the shock bottom plate part. not upsidedown or anything like that.
    (and i didn't do install like you, did the other method without coil compressor)

    hmmm i dont really see why that would make a difference. im not going to go rent a coil compressor just to do it that way. that way scares me. i feel much safer doing it this way. so idk man.

    coils were labled 884x on them. standing side my side the 885x they look the same, therefor giving me about the same lift.

    Something has to be wrong in the assembly for you to be getting a full inch more lift than anybody else

    The 885's should be 10mm longer than the 884's. You should get 3/4" - 1" more lift from the 885's.

    Truth.

    I'm at 22.5" with stock coils on Billies @ 1.75. What are the Part #'s on your 5100's?
