    No, ditch the spacer. You can’t stack lifts like that or you’ll break stuff.

    Put mine on finally today. Threw my fabulous spacer lift away. Rides ok but was told break in is anywhere from 5-7 thousand miles. I got 2.75 inches on a 15 access cab 4cyl 5 speed.

    And may I say this thing rides amazing!!! A whole lot better than my factory struts with daystar spacers. Wish I would have done this 100,000 miles ago.

    After 5 years and 100k on my 2013 I finally decided it was time to do this setup. I am really happy with the results and the ride is awesome! Thanks for the help in this thread. OME 885, bilstein 5100's all around (set at 0), Wheeler's 1.5" AAL. I got about ~2.5-3" all around and maintained the factory rake. I am running 265/75/16's but thinking of going a little bigger when I get a new set before winter. Any recommendations? Hoping to avoid doing any shaving.

    What spring should I get just to retain the 2" spacer lift I have on right now? I have an 08 access cab v6 6 speed. I was told 884s?? I have an AAL in the rear.

    I would stay the same size but pick a more aggressive tread. That will transform the look more than just jumping up in size.
    Here's an old pic of my truck, but this is 5100/884 and a 2" AAL in the rear. V6 MT

    Tire size is 255/80r17

    Do not add a lift spring to a spacer lift. Remove the spacer and get the appropriate lift coil. Does that make sense?

    Ya I understand that. I am planning on replacing the spacer with the spring. I just want to know if I should get 884s or 885s
