    I have heard that 5100's and OME springs are not recommended... Why not? If you set the 5100's at 0 there shouldn't be an issue right?

    There is no issue with them. people have even been running there 5100s at .85" with the 885s without an issue, even though it says somewhere it isn't recommended.

    Not recommended by the manufacturers of each because they want you to pair their coil with their strut. They do work together just fine. If you're going for the 886's you should probably get OME's struts but 884's and 885's would be fine, just keep them at the 0 setting. The OME coils are tall and it's not a great idea to preload them. Set them at 0 and order the correct coil length to adjust the lift.

    I'd like to know how much lift too. I was thinking 886's and 5100's. I'd like a full 3 1/2"s up front.

    its about 2.5" without the spacers. i set my 5100s at .85 and its about three inches. ride is awesome. i will probably put the 5100s back down to 0.0" though cause i am a little worried bout my cv angles. they currently at 17 degrees and two of the fins are touching each other on the upper boot.

    If I run the 886's for the bumper, what should I set the 5100's to?

    0.0"

    i believe the 885 and 886s are the same length, just different spring ratings to make up for the heavier weight up front.

    Can you spec a length when ordering OME"s?

    885's and 886's are NOT the same length...

    884's are 385 mm at 588 lb/in
    885's are 395 mm at 588 lb/in
    886's are 402 mm at 656 lb/in

    Fox and Icon are in a different league than the Bilstein 5100's in my opinion. They're a much better set-up which is why they're double the cost if not more. You should decide what your usage is and set a price point to narrow your search. Icon and Fox is much more high performance and rebuildable.
