    Old Man Emu makes the 885 coils. Not Toytec.

    Search around and look thru the other threads regarding this topic, and some member vehicles, and how they use their trucks. You should be able to get a very educated idea of what route you want to take.

    Well.....Honestly $400 bucks isnt enough to do it up right. IMHO, You're better off saving a bit more money.

    I say you go with OME coils and OME shocks up front. Do the rear later.

    If he gets the 884, it should be about level. Throw in another $80 and get an AAL if going for the 885. Besides, Bro's are in the 909 and 951.
