Suspension for my '87 Tith 110

I want to get rid of the listing to the left and keep a similar lift. It could be a tad higher but not lower. I was looking at terrafirma suspension kit. Is this a good kit? Medium or heavy duty? Other good options?
Please don't ask me to search because on the iPad with tapia talk it's a pain in the ass

Thank you!

I've been pleased with Old man emu. It also fixed the listing to the left in my case. The models I used are in my registry - and would probably work for you since you also have a cage

That lift is what is just what I was looking for. My truck is at least 1" lower in the front. Love your tires btw. I have same size on Toyos

Pablo, not sure if you saw it on my other post but I just Leveled out my mod 110. Tried Front heavy duty ome 751 but only gave me .5 inch lift. Then used medium 764 and got 2 inches. Sits right now. Running 255's/85, factory mod rear hd springs. Ground to middle of wheel arch.. 36.5" front and 37" rear.

Adam - do you why that is? Seems backwards...I would have assumed that heavy duty would give you a higher lift than medium duty. Are the OME numbers (751/764) length measurements?

No, just part numbers. OME designs their springs for carrying loads on expedition use.

751 is a front spring. 764 is meant to be a rear spring.... So using it in the front gives a big lift and the medium/heavy labels then mean nothing.

Normally front springs run about 2" more compressed than rear springs.

don't want to hijack, but the 751 are aprox 14 " and the 764 were 16" the HD/MD is based on the spring rate not height

More than welcome to come down and take her for a spin, see if the ride/height is what you are looking for

I used new take-offs on all 3 of my exmods. I used driver's side springs on both fronts to level it out side to side. The ride is smooth and sits level even with a winch and bumper. Peters has a few kits left.
