3" to 6" Lift

I just purchased everything needed for a 3" lift. All OME to enclude 9000 shocks, 885 coils with 3" spacers, OME shocks in rear to enclude AAL from Toytec. I also purchased LR UCA's. My question is, if I wanted to go to a 6" lift, what would I need to add to what I have already purchased for the 3" lift.

That is all you need. Don't get a body lift.

No not going with a body lift. I really like the looks of the 6" lift and was just wondering how much more stuff I needed to get to that hight.

Not sure been doing a lot of reading on TW so that is where I'm getting most of my information. I am new to this so I need suggestions. I don't know and have not read about drop bracket. Is that the one to go with considerding what I already have.

a 6" lift is a bit of a different setup, and besides looks, it gives you no more performance gain on the trail..It actually reduces it due to the front drop bracket

$0.02

Got the LR UCA's from a group buy on TW for $375.00 from Metaltec, free shipping Total=$375.00. I am going to have the OME setup installed I like the 4 to 4 1/2" look also. I don't think the OME even with the 3" spacers will make it but we will see.

I don't see how you can get 4.5" out of the OME. They are struts and not adjustable.

I think he meant having the 1/4 trim pack from OME to get the full 3" out of the lift. You should NEVER install a 3" spacer on an aftermarket strut

Thumbs up

If you end up getting a 6" kit, you will be able to use the 885's (if you get the stage 1) and the UCA's you already bought. Everything else you will have to sell or get rid of. The 6" kit includes everything you will need to install in go. The difference in the stage 1 and stage 2 kits for both Pro Comp and Fabtech lifts is coilovers or no coilovers. The stage 1 utilizes a 6" spacer that is installed on top of the front strut assembly. The stage 2 utilizes a complete 6" coilover that you replace your entire front assembly with. This is true for both brands/companies. Of course, stage 2 kits are about $1500 more than the stage 1 kits. Many, many guys (my self included with two trucks) run the stage 1 with no problems. I have had a stage 1 pro comp kit installed on my truck since early 2005, close to 148K miles with ZERO (O) problems. Just my 2 cents, hope it helps.
