    Okee Dokee!!! Finally ordering my lift kit pay day (15th)

    Here's what I've come up with and want to make sure it's going to work :confused:

    Bilstien 5100's all the way around
    OME 885 Coils
    AAL in the rear
    Toytec 3/4" top plate spacers

    That should give me a nice even stance (I'm hoping!!!) and clear my 33" BFG Mud Terrains & MT Classic Locks I'm ordering next month.

    Is my thinking correct to use these parts & leave the 5100's at stock setting? Or should I use the Bilstein's for lift & skip the coils?

    Thanks!! I feel like a kid getting new toys! :D

    Stick with the 885's, and set the 5100's at the stock setting. :)

    thats a good plan. Leave the 5100s at 1.75. the toytec spacer, i dont know if that is needed, someone will chime in on this. I would think with the 885's and aal you would sit nice and level.

    Thats the exact same setup I have!!!! Good choice!!:thumbsup: And yes, you will clear the 33"s with some minor trimming.

    Was it all a pain in the ass to install? I'm guessing put the springs/shocks/spacers together then just swap them out......then do the AAL & rear shocks.
