Is it true that the 882s are simply taller than 881s, (i.e. more turns of the coil) and that their spring rates are similar?

Yes, but the spring rates are more than similar, they're the same.

I had that once...spent a week in the hospital :(

Actually OME has redesigned their 882 coils lately, according to ARB ;) they had addressed the quick-sag problem. I should have asked Tim if they have changed the spring rate, however.

FWIW, my 881's haven't sagged since the first couple of weeks, which I compensated for by adding a trim packer to each C/O right off the bat.

right, the shorter 881s haven't had any problems and have always held up to what they are rated for or better from what I've seen posted in 2 1/2 years.

the taller 882s, however, tended to sag and sag fast when too many trims pks or other spacers were added, or, if a lot of extra weight was added to the front end. At ARB's own admission the coils did not handle extra preload well nor were they intended to do so. That has now been fixed in an attempt to "idiot-proof" them.

well if 881's and 882's are the same do 882's lift higher than 881's. I was going to buy some till I started reading about trim packers. the nwor progressive rate coils dont have to have these. So thats what I bought and have had them for about 2 yrs and they are great springs. they give 1.5" of lift and give a good ride.

no, not quite the same. they are made of the same wire and have the same spring rate but the 82s are 20mm taller giving about 1" more lift than the 81s.

1.5" sounds about right for the nwor pr coils. I got about 2" out of them but didn't like the ride. Handling, however, was great and the truck cornered like sports car ;) They are no so great for articulation though and tend to limit wheel travel.

Any idea when they changed the coils? I have 882's and I don't think they've sagged much if at all. Mine are about 10 months old.

don't know, I was yacking with Tim today about lockers and getting an update on the air leak problem (I'll post on that later) and asked about the set of coils/shocks I had returned. I think he's out for the rest of the week but you can try one of the other techs and find out ;)

they are sending me out replacements...need and extra set of 882s/N91s? LOL

I'll take'em if all you want is enough to cover shipping :rolleyes: . How about trade for a nearly new ARB compressor? My new one should be here next week.

I have had my 882s for about 2 years now. They have sagged like crazy. My drivers side has sagged at least an inch, if not more. I rub simply backing up with the wheel turned now!
