I think you said you started with 3-3.5 inches of lift and then it settled after a few months.
Thanks for the thread, it's given me so many plans. My wallet is getting a beating.
Hey, thanks for the kind words. I just recently swapped the OME for a set of Icons, but not becuase the OME had any issues, but becuae a friend practically gave me the Icons. the OME was a GREAT susp setup and I still suggest it to ANYONE. I was running 255/85 with mine which are a skinny tire. With this setup I did NOT need new UCA. I am still running stock UCA to this day and have no issues. The only rubbung was some slight rubbing on the mud flaps (I trimmed my original flaps before going to the previous generation mud flap).
The orifinal lift right after install was high (higher than i wanted) around 3-3.5", but it did eventually settle to a nice comfy 2.75"ish. Also remember, I am currently pushing 6,150 lbs, so my truck is a HEAVY beast, and they held up just fine to that.
Hope that helps
