    I just installed the full 3" OME Suspension lift last week.

    The front sits a bit higher than the rear - which I don't really like.

    To get it where I like it I would need another 1/2" on the rear.

    Any suggestions of the easiest way to achieve this without going too high in the back?

    Thanks

    Add the D29XL add-a-leaf in the back...it puts the rear at the perfect height for the full 3" front setup. You will be left with about 1" of rake. ...my two cents.

    Yeah, different resellers have different meanings for what the "full" OME suspension consists of. Did you add any top-plate spacers?

    Which parts did you put on, and what's the configuration of your Taco? (std/access/extended, 4x4/pre runner, heavy options such as bumpers, etc...)

    What kind of leaf springs do you have on the back? AAL? Dakars?
