OME 890, 891, 890 w/ air bags....861??

I currently have 890s and am wanting more lift. I have a 99, so I only ended up getting around 2''. I also plan to add a rear tire carrier bumper with a full size (285/75/16) spare very soon, and definitely don't want any sagging.

Should I just add spacers? I already have a 10mm spacer on each side. Should I get air bags? Should I move to another spring? Maybe Toytec Superflex?

Who has done something similar -- and what are your words of wisdom?

Bumper will (most likely) be a True North Fab w/ the full swingout.

Do you know how much lift you have compared to stock?

my OME 2891s give me 3" of lift with a rear bumper (no swingout)

Upon further investigation, I think I've already ruled out 861s. It looks like there's quite a bit of extra stuff ($$$) involved and I'm not wanting to do that much just for a little more lift.

I forgot what I measured stock, but rear measures 23" (driver) and 23.5" (passenger). These measurements are also from 6-7 months ago so I will remeasure soon.

I prefer Airbags. You can air up a bit to increase the spring rate to match your load. I always felt like the Heavy Duty springs were overkill unless you have an extra 500lbs on the back of your rig all the time.

I think that might be what I am leaning towards! Any recommendations?

However, I also want it to be a little taller, and air bags do NOT give lift, right?

I literally read the entire thread and I definitely think that coil will be the way to go for me! Thank you so much.
