Toytec or OME 3" lift

So I'm looking at getting a 3" lift and I have narrowed it down to 2 different lift kits the ultimate lift from toytec and the OME 3" lift kit also put out by toytec.
-Is there anything that should be purchased along with the OME kit to make it better?
-Why does the Ultimate kit come with shims and sway bar relocates and new u bolts and the OME doesn't?
-Would it be better to do an AAL or buy the complete OME springs?
-What makes up the price difference?
****which kit would you buy and why?****
please include any other info that might help me out

thanks

True, I just thought I would ask because there were some q's I had that I wasn't able to find or need more clarification on. Thanks though

-UCAs should be purchased with either to ensure proper travel and alignment.
-The coilover adjustment threads rub the sway bar on the Ultimate Kit- The shocks in the OME kit are smaller so there is no rubbing.
-The complete springs would be better in any situation. They are a bit easier to install imo and the OME springs maintain load capacity and improve flex.
-Not sure what makes the price difference- The shocks are different. and there are more parts that require fabrication in the ultimate kit.

I'd buy OME again without a doubt. I like the ride and the lift performance. "Easy" to install.
