    I PM'd DSM about this but i figured i'd ask here to, i'll be getting 881's soon (so i can fit a 265/75/16) and i was wondering about the OME Billy shock difference, is it with it to go with OME over billy?

    IMO the 885's will be way to stiff, and possibly not the right length.

    just talked to wheelers about some coils for my ex cab 2.7 pre runner. im lookng to lift 3'' to match my all-pro 3" lift leafs i just installed and they recommended me to use the 881's to get 2.5" than add a 3/8 spacer on top for a full 3". if the op says 881's will get me around 1.5" that doesn't make sense what the rep at wheelers told me.
    also why couldent i just use 882's and no spacer to get 3"? i know shops dont like to recommend anything but what the factory says but i dont see an issue with that. unless somebody here knows better? will that damage the shock? limit travel?

    I know this is an old thread, I had to go back and see what I posted to remember... anyway. I've been running my 5100's jacked up all the way, with the 881's for over 3 years now with 0 issues. Just FYI. I actually like how it handles too

    So your on the 3rd setting on your 5100's? Did you do that from day 1 or did you move up on them as they sagged? What kind of lift did you get from that?

    By the way how does that handle with all that preload? Has it changed at all in the last 3 years?
