    Alright guys, like many others I've searched and I've searched but have failed to find an exact answer. I am looking into an ome 885+5100 combo up front. I don't have the tsp done on my 05 dbl cab. I was going to go with an AAL in the rear to level out that 2.5" lift. My question is...do I get the 1.5" AAL or the 2" AAL? I've noticed others go with a 1.5" AAL with the 884 combos but haven't seen a post on 885's without the tsb. Will that rear lift be too high?? Or will the fact that I don't have the tsb done make the 2" lift a good fit?

    Thx for the help

    Btw when I refer to the 1.5 or 2" AAL I'm referring to toytecs AAL options...

    Oh, and I was at about 3.5" up front but they've settled to a smudge over 3 or right at it anyway

    Is it pretty level or is the rake noticeable?

    no, OME revised the springs a few years back to prevent severe sagging so their a little stiffer...

    how do you compare the ride from the spacers to the 885 coils? i know they are supposed to be sort of stiff, but compared to a spacer, it bet they ride like butter, lol.

    yeah, i'm on the trusty old spacers now, haha. i'll be pulling the trigger on the ome kit this friday when i get this next paycheck. i just wondered how the stiffness compared, but anything will feel better than spacers lol. after seeing that pic, i might leave the top plate spacers off.
