I'm kinda going through the same thing, I just picked up some 265s, now I wanna lift my truck a little. Personally I think going all the way and getting upper control arms is the way to go if you are lifting the front of your truck significantly. I like that both kits offer add-a-leafs, I'm not a fan of lift blocks. Personally if you are dead set against upper control arms, I would go with Bilstein. I like that Bilstein is adjustable, also I feel Bilstein is a better brand.

both are great lifts, from what ive been researching. i hear people have had the ome coils sag a bit early (though there isnt much evidence of this), and you dont get the option of adjustment. from what ive seen, neither have a really significant downfall (except the ome's require a spacer to achieve the full lift). people on here have had tremendous experiences with both. get UCA's with either, though.

What was that tire size again?

No one should recommend a lift without knowing how you plan to use your truck.

Sweetest ride on a prerunner is a spindle lift.

Of the two, if you're not going to wheel the piss out of it, I'd say bilstein.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Why not the OME shocks with the OME coils ?
