    Hi guys! im getting my 5100 billys tomorrow and just itching to get the ome 885s to pair it with.Im just curious if the travel length of the 5100 set at 0 will be enough to accomodate the longer 885s.also, is there a big ride difference between using 5100s on 885s than OME n140s with 885s?thanks much!

    5100s @ 0 w/ the 885s will be fine, thats what im running.

    I've heard that the OME shocks ride much better than the billys when paired with their coils, but last time I went mobbin in the desert with a buddy, he snapped his OME shock in half :eek:

    edit-- you may even get too much down travel with this setup. My TC arms rub on the 885's when the wheels drop.
