    So right now I hace a readylift 2.25" spacer up front. It has been flawless, but I got the bug and want to upgrade. I also have the rear tsb.. My question is what should I go with?

    I am thinking of 5100's all the was around, fronts at the bottom setting with OME 885's. And a toytec tsb aal out back.

    What do you think? Sound good? should I add the diff drop kit too?

    I am alos going to weld in a muffler as well!

    Thanks

    If your going with OME 885s then you might be happier with OME n142s struts up front.

    Well I was thinking that too. But I have read that they are to soft. Is that the case? Would I be better suited to just get 5100's and use my stock coils, maybe set them at the third setting?

    sorry to butt in but why dont you just keep the spacers you already have and add the billys too? when you max out the lift on the shocks they will give you a rougher ride

    I too thought of that.. But I think this is a better option. I am still on the fence about keeping the stock coils, or getting 885's

    I just put on the OME 885 with the OME N140S shocks, No way are they too soft. I am really amazed at how well the truck rides now, I highly recommend going this route!

    No. They are perfectly matched to the 885 spring rate.
