    Anyone have this setup? Trying to get an idea if there will be enough shock travel (more than 1") if I install the OME 885's with TRD stock Bilstein's? I know that using these shocks with their springs would be ideal but I'm broke right now and want a suspension lift.

    Thanks^^. Looks like I may want to get the shocks too. I like the idea "usnatclee" had with pairing OME's with 5100's. Just need to make sure he can align everything with his stock UCA's.

    Good to hear. You would most definately be happier with the ride if you get the shocks as well. Check with WWFirefighter. He also has the 5100s with OME springs (885?) I'm pretty sure. He's told me multiple times the ride quality is good.

    After a ton of reading it looks like stock shock valving isn't sufficient enough for these heavy duty springs. I oughta do it right the first time and get good shocks and springs. I wonder if pairing 5100's with eibachs set at 1.75 will work? Anyone done this yet?
