    Why not get the parts designed to do what you want?? You can get Camburg lift spindles that'll get you 4 inches off the bat and then add coilovers/5100s/whatever else you want to that??

    The springs with the preload is asking for something to break imho...Not to mention the problems with shock stroke.

    Wait I just realized that many of you might think I plan on using the actual REvtek spacer that compresses the spring. This IS NOT the case. I'm not that dumb. Instead I plan on using the thin silver spacer that installs on top of the assembly after it's compressed. Just trying to clear up some confusion here.

    HELLO! we are trying to save you from a very very bad mistake! do not set the springs at any other height other than 0". listen to the man with 37000 posts!! he is right!!

    sorry to be mean :(

    cause you do realize after 4" lift there is no more going down for travel its all up!

    I'm not willing to shell out that much $ for an extra 1" of lift. Instead I'm gonna see if I can get there taking this route. At most I may destroy the balljoints and have to buy UCA's which I may end up doing if i can't align it.

    You guys do understand that there will still be plenty of shock travel up and down set at .85". I checked with the salesman at Wheelersoffroad before I bought these, he claims that people are doing this and at .85" it is safe. Only ill effects may be a bit harsher ride. This makes perfect sense if you understand suspension geometry. I just need to know how off camber and caster will be with this setup. As of now with the REvtek lift I'm within spec as far as camber goes and just a bit out with caster.

    My guess is you spent somewhere in the neighbor hood of 400-500 bones for the parts you got- so it would be another 500-600 or so to get the spindles.

    But instead of spending the money to do it the right way...
    You would rather risk an unanticipated catastrophic failure (like a spring seat departing it's perch, a shock bottoming out, or a ball joint crapping out and collapsing) just to see what happens. I hope when your shit does break- It's not too bad and it's cheaper than the money you saved.

    Good luck...It's obvious you are going to do it no matter what anyone tells you...so I'm done wasting my time.

    I'm out...~Peace

    you do realize that your not only getting a lift from only the shocks, but also from the springs then again the top plate spacer? did you mention to the guy that your not using stock springs? he might have just wanted to make a sale lol

    OME springs = 3" lift on PreRunner 4 door +
    Bilstiens set at .85" lift +
    1/4" spacers which give 1/2" lift +
    OEM UCA's = 4" lift.....


    You have been warned about this. Good luck, and I hope it turns out how you like. :)

    Yea this is the most of my worries at this point since I'm pretty much maxed out now with my stock UCA's. But my alignment is liveable and apparently 'usnatclee" http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/suspension/56572-just-installed-my-new-lift.html
    was able to get it aligned set at .85".

    OME springs only give 3" of lift when the top plate is used. Why is no one getting this?

    By getting it "Aligned", I know its not. No way it can be propperly aligned with that much lift on the OEM UCA's....They simply dont have the adjustment. However, if you consider "Aligned" to mean, Getting the truck to drive straight down the road, then Ok.

    how is it that an entire board can argue with you...and youd rather believe 1 other guy and a salesman?

    not only that but umm...the guy youre following said this

    and i think Chris has an idea about 885s since he already has them on his truck

    If you have come to this conclusion, I would assume you know what happens when a ball joint fails, right? Its not very pretty when you're going down the highway..

    Save yourself the trouble and go by some spindles. It takes money to play, going the cheap route will get you cheap results.

    I would listen to Chris. He is probably one of smartest guys on this forum about our trucks. He knows what he is talking about.
