Stock brake lines are fine, and you shouldnt need to do anything with the sway bar.

Yes, +1. You will not have to move the sway bar with the OME kit but will have to with the 5100 coil overs because the lower sleeve will hit the sway bar. This is why the 5100 kits come with sway bar relocation brackets. Oh the OME kit is front adjustable with a trim packer.

One of these is included in the OME kit.

Its a "Trim Packer". It adds a bit of preload to the driver side spring to account for the extra weight from the fuel tank, battery, driver, etc.,

Are UCA's necessary for a 3'' lift?

I'm pretty sure that with Billy's set at 2.5 that UCA's wouldn't be necessary, am I correct?

Sorry,

Thanks for the reply, Nuebs. Would there be any decent UCA's for under $500? I have seen the TC UCA's and they're a bit expensive. Could you recommend me some decent one's for a good price? Thanks again.

To add, Camburg has an UCA that uses Ball joints as opposed to Uniballs, and I belive it is under $400.00.

The spring pearch is the black "Cup" in which the spring resides. So....You have the shock, and the shock has the "lip" that holds the pearch. The Trim Packer goes inbetween the "lip" and the "Pearch".

By "Spacer" you mean the 10 mm lift enhancer?
