    If you have a DC then I'm pretty sure the 885s are recommended so I don't know :-/

    You can try the 884s....Lift might not be quite as much.

    For the DC...885s are the recommended. I'd try the OME shocks over the 5100s if it were me....They are built to go together.

    That's what she said!! Sorry, had to do it...

    I have the 5100s w/ Eibach coils set at stock giving me 1.6" lift up front and notice that the ride is a bit more stiff than stock but I like the confidence of knowing I have a beefier setup over stock.

    885's should only be installed with OME Nitro shocks. 884's can get away with 5100's.

    You didn't set the 5100's to any other setting but zero right?

    Yes.
    I have the same except for the shocks. I can not handle the ride anymore... so last week I ordered the toytec complete lift - 885 coils, ome shocks all around and rear OME springs with U bolts & bushings. hopefully the ride will change for the better a little, not to mention i might actually be able to put some weight in the back now :D

    as soon as i get it in a take a little ride around town I will let you know.

    if you want a cadillac ride I recommend you go back to stock (or buy a cadillac) You could also get LT or something else, but pretty much any 3" suspenson lift is going to ride "stiff" compared to stock
