    I think the OME Coils need OME shocks to work. You also should use the recommended 885 for a Dbl Cab.

    OME recommends you use their shocks, but the Bilstein 5100 and the OME coils will work together. There's a whole thread about that debate... Can't help you with the 883's, I went with Eibach and don't have them installed yet but I'm expecting to be just under the 1.6" they claim.

    Here's the debate, you can draw your own conclusions on compatibility.

    I've got the 885's on my double cab and the ride is pretty good.

    I started out with the 885s on my 5100s (set at 0), and the lift was over 2", and way too stiff, I could feel the bottom drop out when I hit bumps.

    So I put the stock coils back in and set the 5100s to 1.75. The amount of lift is perfect, but ride is not as nice as I'd like it to be (prob. cause the coil is preloaded so much).

    So I was thinking going 5100s (at 0) with Eibachs, but I'd like to know what to expect lift wise (is it really 1.6"?)

    I'll let you know next week once I finally get mine on :D
    I went 5100, Eibach and plate spacer on the driver side. I'm getting them mounted up over Easter weekend. I'll measure before and after but you'll have to keep in mind that I'm doing this to a 2007 that may have settled a bit in the last few years so I may actually show over 1.6" of lift before/after. Others have said they get just shy of 2" with the Eibach coils. They will be stiffer than stock though, they're a higher spring rate and it's to be expected.

    I have 5100's set at 0 with Eibach coils and 1/4" spacer on driver side and got 2" of lift. 34 1/4" before and 36 1/4" after. This is on a prerunner so 4x4 will be less.

    Are you running stock size tires? If you're running larger tires, would you mind measuring from the center of the hub to the fender (or put what size tires you're running and I can do the math).

    That was measured with stock 245/75/16 tires. Now I'm running 265/75/16.

    I'm probably going to go with coilovers and just adjust to what I need -- seems the easiest, although most expensive way to go.
