With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

And I'll have measurements in the next few weeks...
The trim packers only fit on the OME shocks.

Price (Each): $299.99

----OME3-05-AL----
Included in kit:
FRONT: (2) OME 884 standard/light load front lift coil springs
Optional med and heavy coils can be selected but require OME N140S shocks sold seperately
Also includes ToyTec Top plate spacers for a full 3" front lift & (6) top plate studs.
REAR: (2) 2" lift ToyTec Add-a-leafs by Alcan spring (a long add-a-leaf for the best ride), w/OEM style anti-friction Pads, & new leaf spring center pins.
