billy lift alternative maybe?

so with the raising of the price of billys, and the fact that noone can keep them in stock, would it be worth just buying the ome 3" lift kit instead? My plan was billys on all 4, and 885's in the front, diff and carrier drop and shims with a toytec aal.... whats all your opinions? attempt to get some billys and do it, or hit up the ome lift kit?

Well i was able to order up some billys, DSM had some in stock, so I'm committed to the billy 885 lift, which I'm excited for. 1 quick question tho, along with the shims, diff drop, and carrier drop, do i need to relocate the sway bar too? I have also heard on this forum that the carrier drop causes more problems by dropping it, anyone else heard this?

You only need the diff drop if you have vibration issues but yes it can cause more problems. Are you even 4wd?

I have 5100's and 885's. Love it. The 5100's set at .85, but no top spacer.

i thought for this set-up you had to leave your billys set at 0 or else much damage.... how does it ride? what size tires?

Rides smooth, but i'm 2wd so I don't have to worry about cv's and I have aftermarket UCA's so I don't have to worry about ball joints.

My tires a 265/75/16 Hankook MT's.

I had to sway bar relocate with OME shocks and springs. Just barely hit on compression.
