    toytec ome 3" lift,true-flow xdi,grillcraft grill w/"toyota" emblem, flowmaster original 40,
    I recently ordered the toytec 3" front lift with the 886 coils, and noticed that toytec's website says you need to replace the shocks as well with the n140s ome shocks. My question for everyone is do i really need to change the shocks and if so are there other options than the ome n140s. Thanks for the help!

    Ya i just got the same kit and i was wondering the same thing. I called toytec and they said like after 50,000 miles it be a good idea to replace them and put new shocks on the front. They said it was for ride quality. I'm curious to see how they feel.

    You should use the OME shocks with the OME springs as they a valved for the spring rates. Courious, why did you choose the 886's? Are you running a winch, or large bumper?

    Ok, Just makeing sure you are aware that the 886's are VERY stiff. :)
