    Just wondering how much lift you guys are seeing with the 884 ome coils with no top plate spacer? Please specify whether you are a 4wd or prerunner. Thanks

    how much lift did you see? says in your profile you already have the 884s.

    ive got the same question, but am looking more at the 885s

    I have them but they are still in the box. The 885's are giving prerunner's 3" and 4x4's 2.5" so I've heard.

    interesting. are you looking for more concrete lift #s before you do the install? are you trying to get to a certain #? id be interested to see how those 884s work out for you considering we have nearly identical trucks

    I thought Wheelers site was wrong. People are getting close to 3" with the 885's if I am not mistaken.

    ^^^yeah, just tryin to decide whether or not to put these on or sell them and get the 885's? For some reason toytec recommends the 884 for access cabs? So I went ahead and bought them only to find out later that the 885's are the same spring rate only they give a little more lift? I'm just wanting a 3" lift, but I don't wanna use a top plate spacer unless I have to. I want to get as much of the 3" as possible with the coils. Does that make sense?

    that 1.75" hypothetical lift height doesnt specify engine or body style though


    only difference between 884 and 885 is 10 mm in length, spring rates remain the same. this 10mm would translate into nearly .8 inch lift difference if you follow the spacer formula. spacer height x 2 = lift height. dont quote me on this but from what ive read my guess-math should at least be close

    I think your right, the 884 is for the acc cabs and the 885 are for dbl cabs.

    If I am not mistaken, the top plates are needed for a full 3" of lift. If you sell those 884's, let me know. I am in the market for a set.

    well if you want closer to 3" im thinking you should def go with the 885s at a minimum.

    the more i think about it, ill probably go with the 885s. i have sliders which are about 100 pounds, and am putting on a beefier skid plate in the future. i only want ~2 inch lift so i dont have to mess with UCAs or worry about my CV angles. the extra weight of the DC would be equaled out on my AC by the sliders/skids.

    I know chris4x4 said he got a full 3" of lift with his dc prerunner? So me being an access cab 4x4 wouldn't that be about equal?

    i went searching around on customtacos, ttora, and toyota nation and believe i am coming closer to the answer we are looking for.

    AC with 884= 2" lift
    AC with 884+.5"spacer= 3"
    AC with 885=2.5-3" lift

    Measurements on DC from center of wheel to bottom of fender flare (might help us?) if only we could find these same measurements for an AC
    885 no spacer = 23"
    885 w .5" spacer = 24.25"

    now i am leaning more towards the 884s..... i wish it wasnt such a pita to swap out springs or i wouldnt be nearly as indecisive

    If you get your own spring compressor it doesn't seem that bad to do.

    no, its not a difficult job by any means, just a general pain to have to do all the work twice, go get it aligned again, etc

    I measured my 884's and they are 15.25". I think the stock springs are 14"?

    You would think you would see about 2.25 to 2.5 inch's of lift.

    Does anyone know how much more lift a 2.7L would get compared to a 4.0L with 884s? (truck: Access cab 4x4 2.7L)

    I definitely DONT want to end up having over 2.5 inches of lift because of a lighter motor.
