    Is the leveling kit you have a preload coil spacer? If so I'm not so sure it's a good idea to run that in conjunction with the OME springs.

    OME springs wont work with factory shocks. and unless the spacers you already have are only 1/4 - 1/2" you can use those either

    I asked if the leveling kit was a preload spacer or a top plate spacer. If it's a preload spacer, then I don't think you should. That's stacking lifts.

    Also, Keason is saying your stock struts aren't made to work with the OME springs. You should get OME struts too.

    also I just thought of this on the way to work. There's no way that your stock shocks would be able to accommodate the lift that the springs and spacers would give you combined. you would be topping out the shocks regularly.
