    LIke the title says. Do I place it under the top plate above the spring? Or on top with the spacer? I am taking OME stuff to the shop to be built this morning and I want to make sure these guys do it right.

    i am not totally for sure But i think it does not go in the assembly. I think is like the smaller spacer on the spacer lift it just sits on top of the assembly

    It goes inbetween the lower spring seat, and the spring seat mount on the shock. Say your holding the schock, shaft pointing UP. Slide the Trim packer on the shock, then the black spring seat.

    hey chris for the 3 inch lift, looking at the toytec page do i need to order the 885 ciols with the top plate spacers or just the 885 coils. Also does the top plate spacer take palce of the trim packer or is it something different

    The trim packer adds 5mm lift to the driver side (= 10mm) to account for the lean. The top plate spacers are "lift enhancers". FWIW, you may want to order the 885's from Wheelers, as I have heard of some of the OME springs from Toytec sagging. They may have some old stock lying around. But, Yes. The 885's give 2.5 to 3" lift.
