Matching front OME coils to rear

Iím having a hard time figuring out which Old Man Emu front coils to match to the rears. I have a 1999 and I want to keep it somewhat similar to stock. I got a set of 4 Bilstein 4600s, and I am looking at the OME 2890 springs for the rear. But what I canít figure out is which front springs would be the right match. 2880s?

I was leaning towards 2880s until I saw Wheelers Offroad has a set with 2890 rears and 2882s for the front. Iím not sure why they paired them that way - it doesnít seem like the right match but I could be wrong. Is there a chart somewhere? Iíve searched and havenít found one.

Thanks for your help.

Hereís what Wheelers says about the rear 2890s:

* Provides a slightly firmer than stock ride, with approx 2.5" of lift for '96-'02 4Runner
* Great for maintaining ride height and load stability while hauling up to 200-300lbs of extra weight

Do you have a stock front end?
-If you do then that will rule in 880 & 881 for OME.

How much rake do you want?
-If you want the rear to sit about 1" higher then 880.
-If you want the rear to sit about .5" higher then 881.

Do you have height adjustable shocks?
-Gives the ability to fine tune your ride height.


Wheeler's is correct. 890s gave me about 2.5" rear lift (22.5" center hub to fender) & about 2.75" with no cargo load.

So I called Wheelers and they recommended the 2881s. Also, thank you for the info re: the difference in height of the 2880 and 2881. That helped me visualize it better.

I did go ahead and order the 881s for the front. How do you like yours?

If you're asking me, they are OK, but I know a lot more abpout mountain bike suspension than trucks, I'm afraid. It feels a bit 'stiff' for lack of better term. I will eventually be adding a plate bumper, so I think it will easily support that. I don't know what shocks you are running, but that will have a lot to do with your outcome. I'm on the standard 5100s on the bottom perch (about 2" lift). My whole rig sounds like a "skeleton in a filing cabinet" (stolen from another poster here) going down the trail, so I'm usually not paying attention to the nuances of front spring travel.......LOL. It handles what I need it to in terms of obstacles just fine.....

Thanks - yeah it sounds like they should be fine for me. Definitely less expensive than OEM too
