    sounds like a good deal but for your situation might not work out....if I'm not mistaken the 885s are the heavier coils and are meant for heavy bumpers....someone please chime in if I'm wrong.

    Check what the 5100s are set at. Heck, just ask the guy how it worked for him/what he had on his truck and you'll get a good idea. Definitely sounds like a good deal though, especially if they're in good cond.

    he says they are pretty much brand new and hes going with a different lift. he also says it will give me 3" of lift up front and with the 5100s and the 885s. and 1.5" in the rear to level it. is this right?

    The 885 and the 886 coils were not designed to work with the 5100's. Which is why I did not but them I went with the Eibach springs. I know some people run that set up with the 885/886 coils with the 5100's on here but I would not.

    ^^^that's what I meant!:D

    If they're in good condition I'd still jump on 'em, replace the 885 coils with your stock springs, set it at 2.5, throw in the AAL and you'd be level.

    If the coils are kosher you'd get a decent chuck of change on here for them I bet. I dunno.

    I have a 2010 4X4 Access Cab with the 5100's (set at zero) and the OME 885's and 1/2" spacer and it yielded exactly 3" of lift. I think the ride is slightly stiffer (up front) than stock.

    I have the Toytec 1.5" AAL in the rear and i think it makes the rear a quite a bit stiffer than stock. I don't have a problem with it though, as i am consistently hauling my racebike.

    Are you looking for 3 inches of lift or just more than you have now? Go look at toytecs web site.

    i just re-read your post, and saw you were looking for numbers...

    Before Lift,
    FL:34.5
    FR:35
    RL:37.75
    RR:37.75

    After Lift,
    FL:37.5
    RR:38.25
    RL:39.5
    RR:39.25

    *measurements were from ground to bottom lip of fender flare with stock OR wheels/tires

    BTW, i took these measurements about 150 miles after i installed the lift so things may have settled since then. Hope this helps
