    After posting up pictures and asking questions. It is speculated that I have a 3" lift, and it is clearly a spacer. My rear is AAL and the truck sits pretty level. Right now I have 33" tires and I need to maintain the current lift, though going to 4" would be perfect (yet I have no idea how this would be accomplished)

    Here is what I have so far:


    Billstein 5100 fronts with OME 885 (I understand it is 885x now? due to original models sagging?)

    LR UCA's (I currently have alignment problems from the setup this guy has when he sold it to me)


    Billstein 5165 w/ rem res

    NEW leafpack (I need some advice here on best brand to go with)

    Use of truck:

    • towing occasionally, not very heavy, mostly quads/dirtbikes
    • I put dirtbikes in the back, usually 2 of them
    • light to moderate offroad - nothing high speed and I'm not rock crawling. 3" lift and 33" tires will probably mean rubbing though.I have already performed dremel surgery where the rubbing occured and it isn't even noticeable unless you look for it.

    I read that OME 885 is taller than Eibach's by something like 10mm, so I went with OME. If the lift is 3" max, and the coils "sag" eventually, that would be a bad thing.
