    884's are for access cabs. 885's like mine are for double cabs. Unless you will be putting a bumper and or winch in the front get the 884's. 885's will also be stiffer on your truck.

    Yes...You can add a top plate spacer to the 884's. I just ordered 885s for my access cab (planning on skids/sliders and maybe a bumper) and I got 1/2" spacers to go with it just in case.

    You will be much happier if you do it with the right shocks tho...Waiting a bit longer until you do have the money for that might be worth it.

    If you are getting OME springs- Get the OME shocks. They are made to go together.
    Billies are also a good option...The choice between the two should be based on what you want to do with the truck...

    this is what i told another member, and chris corrected me :rolleyes:

    according to chris, these springs will ride the same (they have the same spring rate), the 885's are just a bit taller and will sag to give you about 3" of lift.

    the 885's will give a double cab 3" lift. Not sure what it would give an access cab. 884's are recomended for the access cabs, but many go with the 885's for the extra lift.
