    i currently have a 3" spacer for my front end...didnt really research all the negatives of this lift and now regret it. i do occasional offroading and run the truck pretty hard. i DO NOT have the money for coilovers so dont tell me to do that. i was thinking about replacing the fron spacers with a OME 884 coil and maybe billy 5100s? will this give me the 3" of lift back and not give me any kind of problem off roading? i currently have trailmaster ssv shocks in the back with a 2" block (gonna get new leafs eventually). The OME set up is the best for the money correct?

    or will the spacers be fine for another year or 2 and i should just save for the spindle lift? or could can i put the 4" spindles on along with this OME set up later one down the road?

    so this set up will give me a lot less of a risk of breaking something off road than with a spacer right?

    will a new leaf pack and that 2" block be enough to make the truck not look retarded? and i would have to get what later on? longer break lines, longer steering colum? anything else? would UCAs be neccesary?

    Save your money and buy the full OME lift. Its not that much trust me. Cheaper than spindles and way better than spacers. I'm like you, young and in high school. I have summer job and only get $160 every 2 weeks but I will soon have enough to make the next step. Think about it, its gonna cost around $2000 after lift tires UCA and all that stuff, but thats still feasable
