    Just wondering if I install my OME kit with out the Top plate spacers "885 coils" and put the 1.5" AAL in the rear, will I be level across? I'm looking for around 2.5" BTW it's a DCSB

    How much nose high was it at first, couldn't have been much? I don't mind if it is slightly nose high I just don't want it to look like shit.

    Apparently the new "X" series OME coils don't have the sagging issues of the earlier OME coils

    OZ, seeing that you have the 885's do you think the 1.5 AAL is going to be enough to get me level in the back?

    I'm not OZ, But i think the AAL will level you out. I'm on 885x and 2.0" AAL because i don't have the TSB springs.

    I got 2.5 up front with my 885x on my dcsb and also installed 1.5 aal in the rear. I measured half an inch higher in the back but it pretty much looks level to the eye

    I have the 885x coils and no spacer with a 1.5" aal, and I'm actually a little higher in the back (double cab long bed).

    You'll have rake with it. This is how my truck sits without the top plate spacer... The truck is on a slanted drive way but you can tell the rear is higher

    885x, 2" AAL, no TSB, no spacers.

    Rear is higher an inch or so.
