    Ya I know another one, but I am looking for anybody who has put an 884 in a double cab RECENTLY and what results they achieved. Chris has helped HUGE and I am close to pulling the trigger on this but am hoping for some results pics.

    My intentions-- 2 inch for the front and the 1.5 tsb aal for the rear/ OME shocks X 4 ---keep stock tires. KEEP rake.

    I have looked at the 5100 eibach set up and still kind of like the OME stuff/ no offence.:eek:

    Want to do this right and only once.

    Lift has been ordered/ post 42

    Yes, I would also like to know about the 884 coils and possibly the 883s.

    I have heard they have changed them over the years and would like to know more recent lift results as well.

    From what I have found (These are approximate lift amounts)
    885 = 3"
    884 = 2"
    883 = 1"

    Why do you only want 2" of lift? Save some money and go with 5100s IMO. Are you looking to improve your ride, because that coil was not desgned to handle weight of double cab.

    The 884 is fine on a double cab. Its the same rate as the 885, just 10mm shorter in length.

    So if you want 3 inches of lift and you buy the 885's do you need a top plate spacer?

    Thats hit or miss. Some are getting the full 3", while others are getting a little less. I would say get the top plate spacers, but only install them if the 3" lift isnt achieved.

    Before I got my front bumper, I had 884s, then eventually 886s. I switched to 886s because the 884s had sagged dramatically. It started to rub in places that it didn't rub before (33" tires), even after trimming.

    I bought the 886s with no intentions of getting a front bumper. In fact, I had the 886s a long time before getting the front bumper. Honestly, I didn't notice any kind of difference in stiffness between the 884s and 886s. 884s and OEM coils? yes there was a difference but not when I upgraded to 886s.

    After lots of help from Chris4x4 (thanks again) I decided on the 884 with 5100 set at 0 in front, TSB rear with 1.5 Toytec AAL & 5100 in rear.

    My goal is to get around 2"-2.25" of lift in front, and then have some rake in the rear for when I haul a trailer.

    That sounds like a decent lift without hurting in the pocket!! I like that!!
    I personally was looking at the complete OME lift but that's just it, I've just been looking at it!!! LOL.....:D
