    I know that this has been asked at least a thousand times before but every post I look at seems to say something different. I am looking to lift my 96 tacoma and was planning on going with the OME 883 complete lift with aal for the rear. I have heavy bumper and warn winch on the front which I am sure weighs more than 150 lbs. Is this the lift for me? And if it is how much lift should I expect to gain with it? Please someone with experience in this setup let me know.......Thanks

    Eibach coils will take the weight way better. With the 883s, and all that weight, not much, maybe 2''.

    Is it for you? idk, how much lift you goin for? I have a 96 and i have 3''

    I was hoping for 3 inches because I want to run 33 inch tires.
    What about the 882 coils?

    Go with the 882's. They have the same coil rate but are taller. I have a ARB bumper and winch and it sits pretty level. Take a look at my build and you can see how it sits. Mine is a 2004 so may not sit the same.
