    I am looking for some 883x coils, the 884x's I have gave me more lift than I was looking for. The 884's have very few miles on them and have been re sprayed over the installation scratches. If you have some 883x's laying around and want to sell them or trade for 884x's let me know.

    Thanks

    Careful with this. 883s have a lower spring rate, it's true, but they are as long a spring as the 885s.

    So you may not get your desired result. Do some spring rate compression calculations before committing here.

    It is my understanding from the charts that the 883 coils are the same spring rate as the 884 and 885 but are shorter by 10mm than the 884. This is from http://www.cruiseroutfitters.com/tech_OME_coils.html . Thanks for the concern and if I am mistaken with this I definitely would like to know.

    I saw a different chart than that at one point.

    It's probably worth a phone call to ARB USA just to double check.

    did you ever trade your coils? Still holding out for a trade or will you consider selling them?

    Did you ever make the swap, what were the results?

    I ended up selling the 884's and bought 883's. I added a trip packer and could have probably added two but the results are just what I wanted. I am right at 1.5" and the ride is great. The 883's are just like the 884's only shorter and worked perfectly. I only have the 4cyl and dont have plans for a plate bumper or winch so this is a good option for me. If you have the 4cyl and want 1.5" or have the 6 and want less this is a perfect option.

    whats a trip packer? What shocks did you end up using. Did you do anything to the rear? Any pictures? Sorry for all the questions but I'm super interested in doing this myself and would love any additional information you can provide.

    Only 1.5" on a 4 cylinder? I would imagine for the V6 double cabs you'd be looking at less than an inch of lift. Might be a good way to get a stronger spring and retain close to stock height.

    I'm pretty sure he meant trim packer, it's basically a plate spacer that, when used on the driver's side will correct for the 'Taco lean' or can be used on both sides to gain a little extra lift (still need to be a little taller on the driver's side to avoid the lean).

    Yes I did mean trim packer. As stated it is a small spacer that goes on the struts below the bottom spring cup to adjust the height a little.

    I used the OME nitrocharger fronts and OME shocks in the rear. I only did a 1.5" AAL (I have the TSB springs) in the rear and it works well for me. My intention was to get about 1.5" front and rear to maintain a little rake unloaded and level loaded. This setup worked really well for that. I think with a V6 the 884's might give a similar lift.

    The ride is very much improved (IMO), stiffer and more controlled. Before the OME the suspension would bottom out easily and didnt feel controlled in corners especially if it was rough. Now the ride is more firm but feels very controled in the corners and over rough terrain. I dont race or abuse my truck but drive in the backcountry often and find that this setup works extremely well. I also dont "wheel" my truck but often am running old roads that some might consider a trail.

    I will try to get pics up a little later when it gets light out.
