OME Kit what else do I need??

Jesus tap dancing Christ ARBs wep page sucks. My buddy owns a shop and one of his suppliers carries ARB so I am going to order this kit:
http://store.arbusa.com/2-Inch-05+Ta...LK-P21031.aspx

So I have that SKU that I can use, OMETAC05LK

Someone please answer for me these questions. Do I need additional bushings for the dakkars? If so, what part number? Does this kit come complete with the diff drop, U-bolts and other unknown whatnots that I need? We're blocking off a day to do all this stuff in his shop and what i don't want is to be held up by the lack of some $5 part that I could have easily ordered. Do I NEED to lengthen my brake lines??? If so, could someone recommend a part number and supplier for that please?

Last question- i am going to risk running it on stock UCAs for a while. Its my daily driver. Is that a terrible idea? What is the likelihood that I will need new UCAs? If the consensus is 100 percent likely, I will just order them right now.

Took a quick look at that link, there two items on there that say x1, im guessing one is the trim packet for the driver side coilover and the other is the carrier bearing drop so you should be good, except...you will need 4 new shackle bushings to make the install of the rear leaf springs easier, toyota part number 90389-A0003. Or wheelers sells replacement, you might want to look into new aftermarket upper control arms to prevent alignment issues.
Edit: looks like you will need u-bolts also, im kinda drunk so i suggest do more research, dont depend on my answer lol

That kit includes :

885 ( coils )
N140S ( front shocks )
CS047R (Dakar leaf packs )
N182 ( rear shocks )
OMEU53A ( U bolts )
FK-29 ( Carrier bearing drop )


You will need 4 bushings for the Dakars

I would recommend the 5mm OME trim packer for the driver's side to correct for taco lean

I would also suggest centre pin collars for your leaf packs in case you need to add axle shims later

I have this exact kit and got 2 1/2" of lift on my DCLB 4x4 , I installed LR UCA's as well

^here's the expert. So 2885x1 means 2 885 coils? Makes sense i guess...kinda. OP, light racing UCAs by spc are a pretty affordable aftermarket upper control arm that will correct any alignment issues caused by the lift, since your truck is a daily driver you should look into a set of these. Some people say you wont need UCAs unless you go over 2.5 inches, i decided to play it safe and spend the extra money. New UCAs will help the suspension perform better also.

5mm OME trim packer

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

Also , you don't NEED to get longer brake lines but if you flex it out they would be a good investment

Popular opinion here is that Diff Drops are ineffective on 2nd Gens

Thanks a lot. What are center pin collars and where do I get them? I install them when installing the leaf in case I need them later? Are you happy with the ride? Do you ever wish you got the 9000 sport shocks instead?

Sorry , I should have specified that my kit came with the 90000 shocks , the ride is stiffer than stock , hauling loads is a dream with the Dakars

Yes the centre pin collars go on the pins to extend the head long enough that if you need to add axle shims later the pin is still long enough to fully engage the axle location hole

So do I buy multiple degrees of shims or is 3 degree what I'm going to need? Very glad I asked these questions.

You may or may not need shims. People add shims to get rid of vibrations which you may or may not have. Adding the center pin collars like oz suggested will make it much easier to install shims down the road if you need them. If you do need them 2 or 3 degrees should be plenty from what i have read.

This is true , but with the " through pin " shims you need to add the shims to the leaf pack when it is off the truck , with the collars and " slide in " style shims you can add the shims without removing the leafs again

Looks like you got your questions answered. You're going to love the OME lift.
I got a full 3" up front from 885s on my 4Banger AC & am running stock UCAs with no problems. Castor is not in spec but no bump steer or high speed wander. Full 3" in rear from the Dakars (with shell) no axle shims & no vibes.
