    Thanks for the responses. It was late and when I searched Wheeler's, I didn't realize that greasable bushing set was for 1st gens. I'll look around some more for a 2nd gen set that'll take grease.

    So was thinking again... If I go with 886's will that put my DCLB over 3". I plan on doing a hidden winch up front (and really like the added shackle posts!). That won't be for a little while so would I be ok until I put that on? I know they would be stiff but that doesn't bother me.

    Thanks, BAMF sliders look good too. Did you get the kick outs?
    886s will probably put you over 3" before the winch, you might be OK after the winch. Do the CV boot slide if you put the 886s on before the winch.

    Thanks

    after the winch, would I need top plate spacers to stay at 3"? I want 3" full inches to be able to run 285/70/17's...

    No, but you'll still need to trim for 285s.

    No kickouts, but now i am thinking that i should have. My wheels stick out pretty far so they might stick out farther than the sliders by a hair. I guess i wont know until i get them mounted.

    CV boot slide just stretches out the boots so the fins don't touch as they wear out much quicker. Some do it with washers or clips and some just clamps. Search "CV boot slide" for more details on the how to.

    OK I HAVE A QUESTION!!! I would like to know if the suspension can stay around stock height? I use my truck to work and lifting items higher may become a pain after a few loads. Yes I know man up but Im old and may want to take it easy sometimes. I would like a better set of rear leaf springs that dont sag under light loads. Is this an option???

    Full OME lift 885's with Dakar leaf springs. LR UCA's. ImMrYo relocation bracket.
    How many miles does everyone have on their OME lift? I have about 150...LOL

    But honestly I am curious to see how long someone has ran the OME components.

    Thanks
