    So I'm in the middle of installing my new 885 springs with top plate spacers onto my 5100's that were originally set at 2.5".... and all I can say is damnnnnnn!!

    Itt looks like I got an additional 2" of down travel. I actually had to change my caster setting my LR UCAs to clear the springs. The new springs are sooo much beefier then stock too. The only thing I learned was that OME trim packers don't work on billy shocks, oh well, just another reason to get OME shocks too.

    I'll post up some pics when I'm on a computer later

    with the 885's you gotta run the 5100's at zero not 2.5
