    Hey guys, I have a 2001 DoubleCab with a 6" Fabtech Suspension lift. I've been riding on my bump stops for a while and it was explained to me that my front coils are very worn. He also told me that a good replacement would be Old Man Emu 882s. I trust the guy that told me this, he's on the board here, but just wanted to see what some other options were. Thanks for the advice

    882's are a lift coil.....not sure you should use them in conjunction with the 6" lift. May want to try the 881's, or the 880's.

    Thanks Chris, I've never replaced coils before, is it difficult?

    Not really....If you have some basic mechanical knowlege, and a spring compressor, you should be fine.

    okay so I'm looking at 880s and 881s now, and they are both listed as providing lift also, if I were to get a set of either and shackles for the rear, would that lift go along with the fabtech? sorry for the questions, just don't want to mess up

    Get the 880's. I think they give about 1" lift. Yes, longer shackles will lift the rear. No worries on the questions. Thats what this board is for...Amongst other things. :)
