Anyone running the HD OME kit with no steel bumper? I know a few of you here installed the HD but then almost immediately installed the front bumper. I'm talking 5,000 miles later, how does it feel? I'm sure its rough at first but does it calm down at all? I really want the HD kit but my front bumper purchase is a ways out...

your saying your angle's are zero @ the trans & zero @ the pinion?
That is what I am trying to obtain ( 0,0)

Right now I have (0 , 4 )

If by the HD kit you are referring to the 886s, mine didn't settle much of any without weight on the front.

Thanks. But not worried about settling. I'm wondering about ride quality.

-4 at the pinion?

driving down the road the -4 pinion is damn close if not 0.

I think a go pro shot of the pinion is needed as a visual aid for this lesson

Tranny output should be like this

I ( 0 degrees )

Pumpkin output should be like this

I ( 0 degrees )


Drive shaft segments should be within a degree of each other

Mine is like mya : I , / ( 0 , 4 )

How tough is that to follow ?

No I get what you're saying, but I can't find "mya" anywhere, wiki thinks it's a rapper

I did the lift almost a year before I did the bumper and skid plate. The truck sat dead level. It handled a little stiffer, but who really cares? The upside is that it corners like a champ.

I experienced some settling after the bumper and skid were installed, and IMO the springs are compressing as OME designed them to. Keep in mind I'm running the 4 door w/ 6' bed and over 400 lbs of armor, so I've got a lot more weight distributed to the center than the standard cab. I'm also planning on a rear bumper as well.

If you've got back problems or hemorrhoids sell the truck immediately, and certainly don't think about lifting it Very rarely will ride quality improve with height, and if it does it cost you a small fortune to achieve it. That's my $.02
