    The older posts I've seen through searching says to get 885s+3/4in spacer to make 3", but several recent posts by chris4x4 have mentioned that they no longer need the extra spacers and deliver a full 3" without spacers.
    Anyone get 885's recently and not need a spacer?

    my 885 did not give 3" of lift... it was about 2.25" - 2.5" I put the spacer on and now I have a little over 3"

    From my understanding the coils were sagging a lot, so they redid them. Now they dont sag nearly as much as they used to. It gives some 3", gives others less.

    I got about 2-2.5 out of 885's and 90000's, installed all of 2 days ago. The stock front end was super low, so these really helped make it look like a truck that could at least start to live up to the stickers on the bed.

    I have some Toytec spacers on order that I may add later if they settle much lower (with an AAL).

    The 885's from Wheelers, and the 885 "x" from Toytech have given 3" lift on the vehicles I have installed them on....

    FWIW, I recomend installing them without the spacers FIRST, then seeing how much lift you get. If 2.5", then install the spacers. Going over 3" is not a good idea, as you are left with only 1" down travel, unless after market UCA's are used.

    I have 885 w/ spacer with billies set at 0 and LR uca and I have just a tad over 3"

    I had them w/o the spacers for a bit and it wasn't 3" somewhere between 2.25" and 2.5"

    initially it rode kinda rough... but now after they settled they are fine... I am looking to upgrade to ICONs or something else unless I go 6"
