    i preciate it yall, it is a toytec 3" with the 884 coils and aal. it rides better than stock to me. I got the lift for 330 something shipped, and the tires for 680 from a buddy of mine here in town. I was gonna go with nitto terra grapplers but i think these look way better on the truck.

    well i dont know to much about it but i was reading on the site and it said the 885s were for more weight on the front. i figured the 884s would be more of a better ride.

    The 884's will have a softer ride, they are better for non-DC tacos..The 885's are good for AC tacos w/ weight in front, or for double cabs. 886's are good for DC tacos w/ extra weight in front. You may have also gained more lift in the front w/ the 885's - but this way you dont have to worry about crap rubbin! Here is a pic of mine after installing the 885's:

    Now, about 6 months later, the coils have settled and lowered a little..


    The 884's may work just fine for ya, depending on what you do with the truck. If you decide you want stiffer coils down the road, im sure you can find someone with an AC taco to buy 885's and trade, or somethin of the sort...

    Just so you guys know, the 884's and 885's are the same spring rate, 590#. The 885's are only about 1" longer.
