Would OME 880 springs fit on a '09?

    Those springs would raise the front about the 1.5 inch I'm looking for and it's a light spring for a smoother ride but I don't know if they would work with an '09 DC.
    If so can the stock TRD Bilstiens or a 5100 at normal setting work with the 880?
    Maybe I'll even even go with OME shocks with a trim packer on the driver's side to level off if the 880 springs works.

    The OME ones wont fit. You could possably just machine your own....if you have access to those sort of tools...

    With my 32's and no top plate spacer, Im just over 38"....about 38.5" or so..

    Oh okay thanks! I actually looked at one of my older threads when I first installed my lift and it was at 39.5"s. It dropped 1/2" and is now at 39"s even. And that's with the top spacer. That about right to you?

    Cool. Man I keep looking at my truck and that 1/2" makes a difference! I'm thinking about maybe going higher but not really sure what route to take and how to do it by keeping on what I have now.:rolleyes:

    I wouldnt go higher being 4x4. You got a FULL 3" out of the OME's. Your CV's might start to suffer if you go higher.

    If you only go to the Mall in your truck, they are fine. Dont use them if you go off road at all.
