Hi all, I'm trying to "edumacate" myself some more on rear lifts because I have learned a lot about front lifts since joining but for some reason never really focused on things about rear lifts. I've been searching on Google/TW for a while now but I still have some questions.
For a leaf pack like the OME Dakars, do you need anything else with them (to run them safely) when installing besides extended rear shocks? Are longer bump stops required with a leaf pack like this? Are extended rear brake lines really needed with Dakars / All-Pros unless you are doing some serious flexing?
Also, I have heard things about centering pins and shims, and have a general idea of what they are but I don't really understand how shims fix driveline vibes if they raising the leaf pack more?
For something like a U-Bolt Flip Kit, how do the bump stops need to be adapted/fixed? Do they actually come off completely when you do a flip kit and need to be re-welded or how do they go back on?
I may come up with some more questions later , but hopefully some people can help me and this can also be a resource for others trying to learn more.
