    Well heres the deal, i'm not getting a lift anytime soon but i would like to have some questions answered. My Truck already has bilsteins 5100s all around and i dont think it has anything else. i would like to add the front eibach coils and rear aal but which size 884,885,886? I'm thinking 885 but it says if i get that i have to get the OME 90000 shocks also? is this true? i would like to keep my bilsteins if possible. also do i get the 2" aals or the tsb 1 1/2" aals?

    ANY ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! THANKS!

    The picture sure looks like you already have the bilsteins set at 2.5" and have an aal out back. I would suggest double checking what is on your truck already.

    3" Lift with OME 885's, 5100's front and rear, alcan add-a-leaf. Banks Monster Exhaust, on the way: MM951C 17X9 and 285 MT/R's...
    X2, you don't want to put lift coils on your 5100's if they are set any higher than the lowest (0 LIFT) SETTING. Just look at the front coil/ shock assembly, if you cn see any grooved rings below the coil seat, then dont add coils. As far as add-a- leafs go, it looks like you already have something back there. When choosing an add-a-leaf, check to see if your truck has had the rear leaf TSB done before buying.

    I ran 885's with 5100's at "0" and was sitting just a touch over 3" of lift. They rode super nice. I had the TSB springs with a toytec AAL. The whole set up was awesome.

    well i know i have either 4 or 5 leafs at the moment.. whats the stock amount? also i dont think the coils are stock but i can't be sure about anything. if i do have the bilsteins set at 2.5, is there a chance of fitting 33x12.50x20 on my truck with little or no rubbing? im looking at getting wrangler duratracs
