How much lift?? Does anyone know if the ome 881 coils will fit on stock sized struts? The po put adjustable rancho struts on
I've got OME 880s on a 4cyl. Slightly more than 2.5", but less than 3". I stuck with the 15" wheel for the lower cost and more abundant tires, locally.
The OME coils will fit the struts. It may be a PITA with a spring compressor. I used the 5100s up front but on the lowest (stock) setting. I have plans for a bumper soon and wanted the ability to level out the front without buying more stuff.
You may want to go with a one piece driveshaft in the back. On my crew cab when I went over 2.5 in the back I had bad vibes from the carrier bearing. So a one pc shaft solved the problem. Its a 3.5 x .085w. ran about 400 bucks....might want to factor that into the cost of the lift.
Brake Weight, that was the color of my 98 reg cab wich was my favorite color. nice truck.
Thanks. This one piece driveshaft you speak of, you had that built? I'm experiencing the same thing with a thump underneath and traced it back to that carrier/support bearing having lots of play. I'd compare it to running an impact with an extension, a swivel, and another extension. Autozone has Timiken replacements for $73.
