I run 755s and 766s on my 3-door 110. When the truck is unladen, the ride is almost unbearable. It actually starts oscillating when you bounce over bumps. But, load the truck down with a the kind of load that you'd carry on a multi-day off-road trip and the suspension is dreamy and doesn't sag, even with a heavy winch+bumper up front and hundreds of pounds of crap in the back. The ride smooths out and the truck is very stable, even cornering at speed on rough dirt double-track.

I mostly use my truck for long trips so it's the perfect setup for me. If this is a daily or even weekly driver, don't bother. Go OEM HD. The OEM HD will sag with a big winch bumper and a heavy load but it's still usable off-road and it won't kill you on-road.

I have recently acquired some OME medium rear 110 springs that I will use with OME HD fronts I had from my NAS 90. Those will sit on the shelf for a little while tho until I get some other things done. I want to finding the interior and see how the extra weight does with the LR HD spring set.
Roger that, I'll probably ask again in a few months once you forget about it again

I have no idea what is under the truck right now, rusted to hell and assuredly lost a bit of memory. For now, I think I'll just swap new shocks, ride it out, see what it needs and address from there.

It's like a new science I didn't know I needed to learn - always fun.
