    I am think about installing OME 885's on my truck. Will I need to buy upgraded control arms for them as well?

    Double cab, probably not.

    Hijack: I really like those Buckshot wheels; thought hard about getting them when I ordered mine, but didn't think they were available in the 17" size.

    For best results, get OME shocks, or Bilstien 5100's. You will need some aftermarket UCAs to get the alignment in check.

    Ya really think? 885s make my std cab 4 cyl 5sp sit high enough that my alignment may be whacked (won't no for sure till after I get it aligned when my new tires & wheels arrive) but he's got a double cab I assume with the V6, - that's at least like 500lbs heavier.

    I was running my 885's on my truck and needed different UCA's to get the alignment back. The 885's will lift between 2.5 and 3". Anything over about 2" and your gonna need new UCA's.

    I'm sure most people will tell you that you need them, but I disagree.

    I ran my Donahoe coilovers at 2" for about 4 years and never had a problem getting the alignment into spec. Now I have them cranked up to about 3" the caster can't be brought into line making the truck wander a bit when driving, most notably on the freeway, but it doesn't bother me. It doesn't affect the wear on the tires at all.

    The guy doing your alignment can make a big difference too. Big chain store tire places can be hit or miss. I happen to use a shop that does everything by hand using plumbs and levels, no computers.

    SO, say you get the 885's. And 5100's. And you add say a RelentlessFab bumper to it to compress the front a bit. Still think you need to CA's? I ask because im going this route eventually. :D

    I'd like to see your print out. I would bet your Caster is way out.
