    I am interested in a small lift, 1-2 inches. I do a lot of serious driving off road, but not rock crawling. I also do not really care what it looks like. I am about to put on an ARB bumper and want to recover the sag in the front end that will cause, plus want to add a small amount of lift for ground clearance.

    Ride quality and handling over rough roads and terrain are my chief concerns, not cost. What are options that I should investigate?

    The OME kits look like they provide 3 inches of lift, not sure I want that much.

    The 5100's seem to commonly get stiffer over time and I am not interested in crappy ride quality.

    Any info appreciated.

    OME 886 plus 5100s set at 0 and an AAL would be my vote. For every unhappy 5100 owner there are 20 happy ones.

    Buy yourself a whole coilover setup and have it valved for your needs. I know with King and Fox you can get different spring rates to help with sag due to added weight in the front end... thats my only suggestion.
