    Replacement springs will be much better than spacers.

    +1 on the springs, will give you a better ride than the coil spacers.

    I went with option 2 and it is definitely a more harsh ride. I would love to know what the new coils feel like, but.... Anyway, regardless of the rough ride, it has helped big time off road.

    Any time a lift is being installed, and the spring rates are being altered, new shocks are in order. The OEM TRD Bilstiens are only valved for the stock spring rate, and are not up to the task of dampening preloaded springs, or springs of a higher rate. For a better ride, consder swapping out to the 5100's. OME shocks have a spring rate that is matched to their springs, and the Tacoma.

    will the 5100s work with the 885s?

    Of course they will, anything will "work". Here is my advise: Save your money and do it right the first time.

    I'd would go with the first kit (OME coils) and some OME struts up front. That combination would match best.
