OME 895E ?'s

I have a 2003 SR5 V6 and I have New 2020 Tacoma TRD offraod suspension up front and 1.5" Daystar spacers in the rear. I have built a drawer system in the rear for my tools (@150lbs loaded) and I also tow a 6x8 trailer w/ 2 quads. I want to get heavy rear springs but want it to be a 1.5" lift with extra weight capacity.
I have been looking at the Old Man Emu 895E rear coils which give a 1.5" lift. But I can not find exact information as to if they are sprung for extra weight and if so what weight? Anybody have answers?
Thanks!

This is the way it sits now with the new wheels and tires. One size so I have even less room now. 275/70/17.
After seeing pics in my post, maybe I could get away with 2" coils in the rear? When I measured the wheel wells in those pics, the front is higher that the rear, but it definitely looks opposite!!

I started out with the 895e but later went with the 1/2" taller 895s to lose the droop when fully loaded. I have a drawer system, sliders, and fuel skid. I prefer a little rake in DD mode which leaves me about level when loaded up.

Do you have any pics of the 895e's and 895's? Also what front lift did you have?

I started at 884/895e. Felt it was reversed raked so went to 883 up front. Final is at 883/895. If I put a bumper up front I would likely put the 884s back on.


This isn't quite level but how we sit now.

I have the OME 895's and they are ok daily driving with full tools and a swing out hitchgate bumper.

When I run a full load out it barely handles all the extras and that is not towing anything. Your spring choice will come down to how much tongue weight your trailer is.

I'm guessing 895 with air bags or the heavier duty springs w/o air bags. I don't think the 895e is a good choice for what you are describing.

I got my 895's for $204 shipped for the pair after some extensive searching.
