    I'm too broke to think about that.
    I am trying to decide if I want to get Bilstein's on all 4's with adjustable Coilovers or OME setup. I am going to be putting a heavy bumper on at some point so I know I will need HD springs. Any thoughts?

    OME if your going to be putting on a bumper. 886 springs is what you want. OME will be cheaper and you will get the beffier springs.

    Bilsteins are not adjustable other than acting as a preload spacer. OME is the shock you want and you don't want to preload your stock spring that much. Get 885 until you have a plate bumper and winch... then swap to 886 springs. Get the older OME shocks. The newer Nitrocharger OME are more expensive and ride firmer.
