    After looking at ALL the lifts, I had decided to go with the OME setup. But after talking with the different distributors I got 3 different answers on the lift heights. I want 2.5-3" to fit the tires and wheels I like. So which height should I expect with the full OME setup.

    Make sure you get the top plate spacer to get the full 3".

    885's with no top plate spacer raised my DCLB 4x4 2 1/2" up front , hasn't moved in over a year

    1/4" top plate spacers will get you another 1/2" of lift

    Don't forget to add the 5mm trim packer to the driver's side shock below the coil mount for taco lean

    2.5 is what I would like 3 would be ok. I just couldn't figure why there was 3 different heights on the same parts. This is the first lift I have done and it is for my son. So I want it to be RIGHT. It's a double cab short bed 4x4 with really crappy factory leaf springs. Thats why I had decided to go OME to get the dakars included in the package. And it was HIGHLY recommended by most everyone on the site.

    To much to list...see sig for more...
    Cause all trucks are different so some say 2.5" some say 3" but realistically w/o top plate you prolly won't get a full 3". Plan to get some new UCA at 2.5" and higher lift.
