    I want to level out my truck and was wondering if I can use OME 884 springs with stock TRD OFF Road shocks... OME 884's or 885's should give me about 1" of lift which "should" level the truck out... Also which springs would be the best fit for leveling the truck out? 884, 885 or 886?

    Also the other question is, will new springs get rid of the infamous "Taco lean"?

    you're going to get at least 2 inches of lift with those springs. and I don't know exactly, but I wouldn't trust the stock shocks to handle those springs well.

    and as for the taco lean, a 1/4 top plate spacer on the driver side will get rid of it (so I've been told)

    also I put on my lift over two days, I did the front first with 884 springs and no top plate spacer and I was nose high.

    No, springs alone wont get rid of the lean. 1/4" top plate spacer or OME trim packer.

    UGH!

    Front Bilstein 5100's are the same price as pair of ome 883 springs...

    The question is whats better, run 883 with stock shocks or run 5100's with stock springs :confused:
