    I am stuck between a few choices. I currently am running a spacer lift and the rear TSB with an ARB bumper and 285 Duratracs. I hate the spacer lift and it sagged pretty bad after the ARB was installed. Now the 285's rub pretty bad on the back of the fender. I do moderate off roading (nothing to extreme). I don't know if I should save and get fox/icon coilovers, not save as long and buy toytec coilovers , buy toytec coilovers with 5100's that uses the factory toyota top plate now , or buy OME 886 with 5100's now.

    I am looking for my truck to be level agian or at 2.5 inches of lift in the front with the ARB installed. I also may add a winch to the bumper in the future.

    I am also trying to obtain a better ride than the spacer lift has given me.

    Thanks

    Do 886's with OME shocks. They're valved for the specific application of the OME springs and the Tacoma.

    The cheaper way out is 885's w/no winch, or 886's w/ winch and OME Nitro front struts. I much prefer Adjustable coil-overs. If i had not bit the bullet and bought adjustable coil-overs I would probably be on lift kit number 5 by now.
