    So I'm planning on getting an ARB winch bumper for my Tacoma but I want to maintain the stock height, so would the 886 springs suffice or will they be higher than stock?

    Higher than stock and ride very rough until the bumper is put on.

    Higher than stock by about 2-2.5 inches.

    Dang you guys are fast. Okay well then what kind of springs should I get to compensate for the 200lbs+ of weight on the front end?

    Eibach/Toytec (1.6 inches of lift) coils may be your best bet for retaining stock height as they will sag some. You may still get somewhere in the .5-1 inch range of lift though.

    Okay I appreciate the guidance a lot. My last question now is, can I use the Toytec springs on my stock Tacoma shocks? I have a base 4x4 so I don't have the TRD shocks.

    Yes you can run the Eibach coils on stock shocks, though the ride will not be as good. Pairing the eibach coils with 5100s set at 0 would greatly improve ride quality, but yes stock shocks can be used although most would not recommend it.

    ^ Get the eibachs & 5100s, you'll be happier in the long run if you fork over a little more dough.
