    Bilstein 5100's all the way around, fronts @2.5" (highest) setting. Rear leaf springs from a '91 pickup (1.5" lift). Firestone airbag spring helpers. Doug Thorley ceramic coated Tri-Y header. K&N air filter. Tubular steel front bumper.Much more planned!!!
    I have recently installed an 80lb steel bumper on my 95 extended cab 2.7L with billie 5100s cranked all the way up. I have lost some ride height after the addition and I would like to regain it, if possible.
    It seems that the OME 883 has a stiffer spring rate (103N/mm) than the 880-882 springs (88N/mm), but it is 20mm ( a little less than an inch) shorter than the 882. Which one will give me more lift???
    I plan on mounting a wench when finances permit and I am not afraid of a stiff ride.
    Any input would be appreciated.

    Do you realize how funny your spelling error is? "Mounting a wench" means mounting a prostitute.:p

    I think you meant "mounting a winch". Biiiggg difference.

    As for your question. I would trust what OME states about the springs. At least for the 2nd gens, they are very descriptive about what situation each spring choice works best in as well as how much lift you can expect.

    Your a 4 banger access cab so I would expect the lift numbers to be a little higher for you. You can also get a 10mm top plate spacer to get up to that 3" mark.

    I have seen them for this application, though at first I was under the impression they were specificly for 4runners

    http://eastsidecustomtruck.com/i-1827252-tacoma-front-ome-coils-toytec.html

    Maybe I meant "I dont mind a stiff ride...(when)mounting a wench"... but that would be another forum...

    this forum seems only to add to my confusion instead of bring any sort of clarity... I think I maybe better off just reading old posts compared to asking specific questions...

    All the info I have is they are the same size and spring rate as the 884, and 885 springs, just shorter. They are made for the FJ, 4Runner, and fit the second gen Tacoma. I think that link is a typo, as I see no where else stating they fit the first gen Tacomas.
