    And how is sits as of yesterday

    The front is no where near as high as I would have hoped. I think a spacer is needed of maybe something stiffer than 886 upfront. Out back every thing is great! I am thinking of getting the AAL for it. Has any one found a way to stop the squeaking from the rear leafs?

    Looks awesome! Nice wheel combination!

    Yeah, mine dropped down in the front with a plate bumper and skid. Thinking spacer as well.

    There are a lot of threads discussing the squeak. I think the general consensus is clean them and the lube them. I think others have used cut up pieces of bicycle tubes in between them too.

    edit: looks like pond liner instead of bicycle tubes

    Noob question. I've gone through this thread and am still not sure of the answer. If I were to have a full OME kit installed (leaf pack, shocks, and springs), what else will I need or is recommend? Thanks!

    71 pages of OME talk is a lot. I went with the springs and shocks, no AAL or spacers for a solid 2" of lift. I recommend you install the carrier bearing spacer if you have a DCLB/DCSB. Its not necessary to install a diff drop, but I did for shits and giggles (plus, I dont have any vibes). It's also a good idea to upgrade to a slightly longer brake lines (SS braided are the best). I've read a lot about the Taco lean, but I'm not sure what lifts/lift packages result in that situation. OZ seems to be the OME bible, so hopefully he'll chime in with some advice for ya! Edit: look at there, there he is!

    Either 883 or 885. Any recommendations? Any idea what type of rake the 883s would create with the Dakars in the rear?

    i'll let the OME god speak to it, but IIRC 883s arent made for the 05+. i'd go w/ the 885s if you dont plan on adding any significant weight to the front.
