    I currently have 885 coils with the top plate spacers on my truck with 5100's set at 0 to get 3" of lift. I have the toytec AAL and TSB in the back .

    I have a pro-comp 6" lift on the way.

    Im not sure I know where my stock coils are....is this bad? Would we be able to use the coils and ditch the spacer? Also...for the rear...how will i play this out? leave the AAL and install the kit....or remove the AAL and install the kit with my TSB...I am confused on what exactly I need to do?

    I was thinking if I cant find my stocks and the 885's have to get combined with the lift...wont my cv angles be no different than they are now at 3"?? ...what about for the rear??

    i think the stage 1 procomp comes with a 1-2" spring isolator and a big 4-5" spacer for the front. so if u dont use the isolator but use the spacer, u should get 7-8" in the front. there was a thread a while back about a guy who had the lift installed without the isolator and it had an extreme nose-down rake

    what exactly is an isolator? the spacers in the kit are just temporary until i get more funds down the road to swap out for c/o . :cool:

    the isolator goes in between the coil and the strut mount, compressing the spring for additional lift. looks like theyre made of polyurethane

    gotcha...hmmm..

    im wondering if im screwed if i dont find the stock coils...I think i read the 885's lift about 1.75" .....so that would be about 7.75 in the front if I use the coils....now for the rear, i am thinking i might be able to just get rid of the toytec AAL thats for the TSB, and maybe be about even ??
