    I have a 98 4x4. I just replaced the rear shocks with the 5100's and gettting ready to install a Skyjacker TRC25S 2.5" leaf pack. I have the adjustable 5100's for the front and I know my spring's are shot. I have been looking at the Old man emu springs b/c they are in my budget. I plan on getting a brush guard or bull bar eventually on the front end. Should I get the the 880 881 or 882's? Also once you suggest one please let me know what to set the billy at when I install everything to achieve a level look.
    Thanks in advance!!

    You should leave them at the 0" seting, unless they sag. The 882's are designed to give lift, with a heavy bumper.

    Oops.....You said Bull Bar,...They are not heavy. You could go with the 881's if you wanted

    getting there....
    i run 881's on my 04 double cab...gave me 2 inches in the front...bilstein 5100's set at stock height(bottom clip)........and i have a brush guard(cheap kind)....now if you are getting a plate bumper..that'll make a difference....get the 882's for the weight of the bumper.
