    Anybody running Bilstein 5100 with OME 885's? Any issues or alignment problems? What size tires can I use without tires rubbing? Thanks!

    That's what i am running. Aligns fine with stock UCA's. 275's no rubbing, had to remove small flaps up front though. I am just about done with my 275s and gonna try a 285 next.

    Did you give any consideration on installing the ECGS bushing. Looking to do the same setup. Yours looks great.

    Thanks,No on the EGCS bushing, truck only has 23k miles on it and have had no issues at this time, will address it if i have to though, i have some of the relocation kits for truck but found that i didn't need them, when i brought it to alignment shop they said truck was barley out of align so i take that as a good set up for the Tacoma

    Sounds good. Being on this site for awhile definitely helps, but also can inflate the concerns when lifting. Thanks.

    yea i think for the money the Bilstein set up is hard to beat, and yes this site can scare one out of these lifts but if you take your time and don't beat the lift into place it will serve you right

    That's what I'm running on my prerunner, do I will say I have now realized it would have been betterthou probably to do the 884 which I believe gives about 2.5 and then use maybe like a half inch v spacer, the reason I say this is that the shock doesn't really have much distance to they can travel down before it tops out which is kind of dumb.

    so I'm thinking if I shorten the spring but moved the whole assembly down that'll give it just slightly more downward travel.

    After some time, I'm happy with my 885s. I think I would've been happy with 886 too though. The 885s just needed some top plate spacers to get me the lift I wanted. I do really like the way they ride paired with 5100s. I would like to compare with OME shocks though.
