    5000 miles on this setup. All street miles and are in like new condition. I've upgraded to Icon coilovers and rears. Bought and installed 6 months ago from Wheelers Offroad. Their prices are shown below to give you an idea of what this stuff costs new. You pay shipping. I'm in Atlanta GA.

    OME N140S Front Shocks 299.90
    OME 885 Springs 153.00
    Assembly 225.00
    Total = 677.90
    Your price = 350.00

    OME N182 NitroCharger Shock Set 168.50
    Your price = 100.00

    My loss = your gain

    How much does this affect the setup? Can it be fixed? How much would something like that cost?

    WOW!!! You would think whoever installed them would have caught that. Not hard to determine how they go on the OME shocks....

    They need to be dissasembled, and re assembled correctly. Cost would be spring compressor rental, and about 2 hours if you DIY, or about $300.00 if you have ashop do it.

    Wheelers installed those upside down?
    or did you take them to a shop to be assembled?
    i would contact Wheelers to fix it if indeed they did the assembly.
    "We can assemble the front shocks and coil springs and ship them to you for easy installation. The assembly cost is 225.00 and includes necessary Toyota factory pieces."

    Guys (and I use that term loosely in this context) you can install the spring collars either way. Installing them down like on my shocks decreases the preload slightly as it compresses the spring ~1/2" less than if the collars are cupped. You will get slightly less lift out of this setup (1.6" vs. 1.75") but with some 1/2" or greater spacers you'll get that back, as well as a bit more plush ride out of the OMEs.

    For those who can't comprehend this just ask someone who actually does offroad their truck, maybe some old crusty Land Rover guys that you've been afraid to talk to because they are over 40.

    On this topic, I'm not going to argue with anyone here just saying my part. Frankly, I have better things to do than sit around achieving the highest post count or analyzing photos.

    Consider the trolls fed.
