looking for a little guidance....

Hey guys,

Been lurking around here for a long time reading a lot. Now its time to ask for help.

I am looking to put a lift on the 09 DC LB sport...was thinking along the lines of the bilestines 5100's or the OME 885's up front.

I am worried about the drive line vibe and I also don't want to sacrfice my ride quality but I also want a cheaper setup like this. Can someone give me feedback on which setup is getting good reviews and give me a breakdown of what needs to be ordered and from where....I am 90% on the pavement with the odd excursion on a offroad trail.....Thanks for the help. I know this topic has been beaten to death.

I'm making an educated guess that the DCLBs are less susceptible to driveline vibes since they have a longer driveline... i would think. Just put some 3* shims on the rear when you lift it, can't hurt anything.

OX-T ,

O.K. thats the exact same truck as mine, how much if you don't mind me asking is the full OME kit ou have installed? and also do you have a link that list all the parts included?

How does the ride feel? I am concerned about ride quality as the roads here have a crap load of pot holes and hey can shake the crap out of you, I wouldn't want it to get any worse.

I really apreciate the help.

Thanks everyone

OX-T , Lol

Here is a link to the Toytec pricing for this OME kit

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

You may find a better price elsewhere , but that will give you an idea what you are up against .

You should also get some aftermarket UCA's to make sure you can get a proper alignment after lifting , I chose the LR UCA's

http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72

If you do not plan on adding an aftermarket steel front bumper and winch , I suggest the 885's for your DCLB , if you are going to add a bumper / winch , go with the 886 coils .

If you do not haul weight in the bed or plan on adding a cap , you would be fine with the AAL option rather than the full OME Dakar leaf pack , which hauls well but is a stiff rear ride when the bed is empty .

I was fortunate to not get the vibes that many have experienced , but I really think that part is a bit of a crap shoot , going with the OME lift will not garauntee you no vibes .

One thing I would strongly suggest if you do go with the Dakars is to add a centre pin collar extension before you install the leaf pack , this will allow you the option of adding axle shims later if you need to use them to correct a driveline vibe .

The centre pin that comes with the Dakars doesn't provide enough length to add shims and have the pin well seated in the axle spring perch .

Good thread on that here
