    I’m looking to install a lift here soon but have come to a stand still with which front springs to get.

    I’m stuck between 885s, 886s, and 887s. I’m more than likely adding a slimline front bumper to have some recovery points and for a winch in the future.

    Will the 885s hold the 70 extra lbs of the bumper okay? Thought about 886s but I feel like without a winch, skids etc right now the ride will still be stiff as a board.

    Then I thought about 887s to still have height with the weight but am curious if I would have to install new ucas because of the increased ride height?

    If anyone has any opinions or thoughts just let me know. Thanks!

    Only problem is budget. Don’t have an endless amount of money and only have the money from parts off my tacoma I’ve sold. One income and fiancé is in school so saving isn’t really an option.

    How much was it to ship these over from Oz, if you don't mind me asking?

    I like that they have the kdss lean coils but I have a guy I can get 885 OME coils from for only $50 so it saves me a little money.

    Oh, nice! Thanks!

    The prices on the website are in AUD, correct? I'm assuming a set of front coils is somewhere around $175 USD? Am I in the ballpark?

    Google took me to the Australian site. Should have used your link to begin with.
