    OME suspension, ARB bumper with a T Max winch
    Has anyone tried using the OME N140S shock with either Tacoma or Tundra TRD springs. I have the 885 springs now and the ride is terrible even with an ARB bumper and 9000lb winch, it rides like it has 1 ton leaf springs.

    You will lose the lift you get from the 885 springs if you go back to the stock springs. I think with that much stuff on it you should have gone with the 886 springs.

    If you over weight the springs you will get a rough ride cause they can not compensate.

    Maybe Chris4x4 will have an idea...

    I would go Bilstein 5100 Adjustables w/ stock "non" TRD springs.

    I just put the 886's on my OME N140S struts and it rides up high and smooth. I have the ARB front bumper with a 10k T-Max Winch. Got them from trdparts4u.com (Toyota of Dallas Texas) I'm in PA. No tax, same shipping cost as if I bought it here in Pa. Must use a standard rate for US. I have 2006 Tacoma 4x4 Dbl Cab Longbed TRD Sport
