    Hye guys i need new leaf packs in the rear and shocks, I blew mine out bad......

    I am debating between the OME 3" lift kit. That has new shocks, coil overs and rear leaf packs for $900 bucks, but i don't off road really ever and don't want do do UCA's


    OR

    a set of 5100's all the way around $369 shipped with the OME rear springs. ($339) with the front 5100's set at 1.75 since the rear OME springs add 3 inches.


    Are the coil overs worth the extra $150? and will I need UCA's I just don't want to get into the lift sand trap and start changing lots of stuff.

    I load it up a lot, and drive to work with it and dont want to go nuts.

    5100's will be fine, i think 2.5 would make it level unless you want the back higher. check out allpro leaf packs as well, alot of people have them and love them, close to the same price.

    You stated you don't off road, thus you probably don't want leaf pack without the overload leaf.

    Other than OME leaf pack, does any other manufacturer make leaf pack with overload leaf. Anyone want to chime in here? Any one with OME leaf pack?

    Your truck would look pretty dumb with that setup. The rear of your truck would be like 4 inches higher than the front. You would damn near be falling out of your seat.
