Currently have 5100s set at .85 to clear the 265/70/17 tires but I want to do a full suspension upgrade for both the front and rear. my stock leafs are nearly flat and bottom out over speed bumps or when under load, and id like a more long term option in the front. Due to minimal off roading besides the standard rough WV roads, I figured the OME kit would be the best option.
Looking to get about 2-2.5 inches in the front (i will be getting LR UCA regardless, just want this height to avoid vibes) and roughly 1.5-2" in the rear. After thorough research, I figure that the 884 coils w/ nitros would net me the desired lift in the front with my DCSB but my concern is the rear. Since the stock leafs are so shot, an AAL is not an option. The Dakars seem like the consensus to be better anyways, but I'm concerned that even w/ the third leaf removed, ill still have a massive amount of rake. I've searched as much as I can but it seems there aren't many people who took out the third leaf so the first hand accounts are limited.
Does everyone think that I would keep the rake to a reseanable amount w/ 884s, trim packer, and dakars with third leaf removed?
