I have 885/895 on my V6. I also have JBA UCAs as well. The ride is nice and smooth for me. I am running Eibach pro-truck shocks though. They are said to ride smoother over rough terrain/roads vs the bilstein, but I cannot say because I have never rode on the bilsteins before.

Also running a 1.25 spacer in the rear left to even it all out.

I am hoping to keep the stock UCAs, which is why I dont want a lift over 2in up front. Will the additional weight of the v8 help with keeping the 885s down? How does the weight even affect the lift?

If using 885s, plan on doing UCAs. Its like a 3-3.5" lift using 5100s and 885s even on the bottom clip for the 5100s. This is what I run currently. I have SPCs that can be purchased under $500 shipped from Battle Born Offroad. If you're spending crazy money on front and rear bumpers what is an extra $500 for a proper suspension component. Your stock UCA is probably worn the heck out anyways.

i've been researching the same type of lift as the OP. i also have the V8. it was recommended to me by a rep at Wheeler to go with 5100s and the 2887 front springs (advertised as 2"-2.25") and the Wheeler T12 springs in the back. haven't pulled the trigger yet as I'm waiting until I need new tires. Just passing along info I got from a rep at Wheeler after asking the same question as OP.

if you go 3" plus in the front you also strain your CV angles upward too...
(reminded after looking at my new lifetime napa axles and how horizontal they are with the 883/895e setup for v6, 2"ish lift)

885s are 5mm longer than 884s. and the bar diameter is .5mm thicker. Spring rate is the same.
It will sit a tad lower with the v8. I got the 885s just in case I get a bumper in the future.
As for CV angles, mine are fine. No diff drop either.
You probably wont need UCAs for anything under 2.5" lift, but its nice to have them if you ever want to go higher and have better caster and no uca rubbing at full droop.

I'm in a similar boat. 5100s and Moog coils on now but have a front bumper enroute and the Moogs didn't quite get me the height I was after.

Based on Momo.75's build, I'm thinking I can get away with 884s (5100s set to zero) and Superflexes? He has his 884s set on the first clip but also has a V8 and DO front bumper (I'll be running the SW with no winch for the foreseeable future).

Might just get the bumper on and see where we net out. Either will move the 5100s up a notch with the Moog springs or swap front/rear entirely. Not against new UCAs but have relatively new CVs that I'd like to get some life out of. Guessing if I went with 885s, UCAs would be mandatory for road manners.

At the end of the day, looking for modest height 2.5" and level rig.

Thoughts?

Yup I've read that too but Momo has run that setup for years. I wouldn't go above the first clip but am trying to avoiding pre-loading a lift spring at all if possible.

And just to clarify, moving the settings on 5100s with OEM springs should be fine.

that is good to know. if i got added weight in front to go to the first one-up setting. then again considering you have to take the suspension off to lift it to that notch i might end up dropping the $150 on proper springs at that point anyway... good luck

Yeah, that's kinda where I'm at, especially with my current lack of free time.

I'm pretty set on Superflexes in back but the conundrum is what to run up front to level me out, avoid preload and support the new SW bumper.

May roll the dice and throw on 884s much to the chagrin of my credit card...
