Will those work with the factory trd struts, i.e. just changing out my springs for those, or would I have to pick up a longer set?

According to ARB, extended height coils are supposed to be used with their longer struts. Maybe guys have used them with the TRD stockers but I am not sure.

just for the record u dont need longer struts for teh longer coil. im runnin stock length struts on an ome 882 spring. u dont need it cause ur still only going to get the same amount of travel out of the front end regardless of how tall the spring is. the taller the spring the less down travel you will have but uptravel will be the same. its not like a solid axle truck when u put tall springs on it u need long shocks to accomadate the flex. just thought i would try and help with ur sale.

the coils will be a direct swap for OE coils in '95-04 Tacos
you'll gain about .5" in the average v6 and about an inch with the 2.7.
OE TRD shocks will work fine. OE v6 shocks will work "ok" but not great.
forget trying to use OE 4-banger shocks...not nearly enough dampening power for the 500# OMEs compared to stock 420s.

ride will be a little stiffer but better, IMO, than stock
you can add spacers or trim packers for more lift up to about 1" thick (2" of lift).

X2! The OME 880's will only give roughly an inch lift over stock OE coils, and that's pushing it. You may want to rephrase your sales pitch to say something to the effect that you will NOT need the longer struts with these coils. The stock TRD Bilsteins will work just fine with the 880's.

I would be interested for $80 dollars, however I have a coil spacer lift from Cornbred that gives three inches of lift. 3+1 does not add up well? I have a 4 banger with stock coils.
