    I have been racking my brain trying to decide which lift set-up I want to go with, as I don't want to go cheap and regret it later but at the same time don't want to get to crazy either so I want the most for my money. I think I want to go with the Bilstein 5100's up front set to 2.5" with Light Racing UCA's for alignment purposes. In the back, because I have the stock 3 leaf set-up that sux (when towing a Uhaul earlier this year it caused quite a bit of sag) I'm thinking of getting the new OME Dakar 2.75" lift Leaf Springs & a possible DL carrier bearing drop (not sure about this part yet or if I really need it) to prevent vibrations. Please give me your opinion and whether or not this combination of items would be worth my $1100 or so. THANKS!! Jason

    Not a bad set up, but you should see of you can spend a little more, and opt for the OME 885 coils too.

    I'll definitely consider that, and if I did so I would need to keep the Bilstein's at stock height, correct?? I considered the AAL option in the back, but being that I have the 3 leaf set-up without TSB, decided it would be best to just get the whole new leaf pack while also giving me a nice lift. With the new OME leafs in the back, would I also need to get rear shocks or no?? I have factory bilsteins in the back & was hoping for now that would be alright.

    yeah, You'll need new rear shocks. Set the fronts at 0" with the OME springs. IF....you wanted to pony up a few more bucks, the OME shocks give the best ride with the springs.
