    I will be ordering my OME Lift pretty soon here. I have decided to go with the 886 coils because I'm planning on putting on the ARB Bull Bar in the near future. I just want to know if I can install the 10mm lift enhancer along with the 886 coils? I heard someone said that ARB don't recommend the 10mm lift enhancer with the 886 coils, but can't confirm it. I will have Dakars in the rear, will you guys think with 886 and 10mm pack in the fronts will make the front higher than the rears? I'd prefer the rear to be a bit higher, about .5" to 1" higher. I need some feedback because I'm ready to push that ORDER button now.

    I have just installed the 886s with the trim packeron the left for the lean, I tried it with a 1/4" top spacer as well cause even with the trim packer and my old 885s I still had the lean.
    Well I did not like it. Too much lift and it felt like my down travel was comprimised.
    I would use the trim packer on the driver side and just go with the springs.
    They add a lot of lift over the 885s and should be about max on the lift

    Are you double-cab V6?

    886 plus 10mm sounds like madness to me. If you're determined to go that path - my advice would be to wait until after you've installed the bumper - or do the bumper at the same time.

    Or budget extra for dental work replacing the fillings that jar loose. :D

    I have the ARB bumper with winch and 886 coils on my 2010 Double Cab and am very satisfied. I have the TSB on the rear and I am about level. Hard to tell exactly because I have about 400 pounds of sand bags in bed.

    I have the double cab long bed. I think I'll just with the trim packer on the driver side and consider the top plate later on when I get the bumper. Can't wait!

    I had 885s with all the extra weight and they were a little soft but O.K.
    After I hacked off the swaybar I wanted a bit more stiffness to counter the lack of a sway bar.
    So I put on the 886s.
    I had the trim packer on and added a 1/4" spacer on top but it was too much so I removed the extra spacer and it is a lot better now.
    I have not made measurements since I removed the spacer but I will soon.

    Post up your measurements and photos. Do you have Dakars in the rear?

    886's with a top spacer seems overkill . 886's on their own are designed to carry an aftermarket bumper and winch .

    If you go that route you may want to stop into your local sports suppy store and buy a mouthgaurd .
