    Picked up an OME lift kit from my parts guy today.
    Came in lots of boxes for each of the parts... no instructions.
    I'm mechanically inclined enough that I have no fear whatsoever of doing this myself, but I don't want to skip any critical steps or miss anything of special importance that might be safety related (or make installation faster)!
    Long story short, did your kits come with instructions, or do they just assume that a pro will be doing the install?
    I did e-mail ARB but haven't heard back yet.

    Thanks for the link. Mine is just a 2" kit so it's not quite as bad as that; no brake lines anyway.
    Yes, the Dakar leafs are part of my kit.

    Don't see any shims for the leafs.

    Well crap. The ARB site listed this as a 2" kit. I might be getting those UCAs after all.

    That's why I thought I would let you know .

    I put in the LR UCA's at the same time .

    It's been about 2 months and the front hasn't settled at all , the rear squatted down about 1/4" when I added the cap .

    i did the front (1st day afternoon ) the rear leaf and shocks (2nd day afternoon) I split the work in 2 days
    no instructions from ARB, but it was straight forward to install

    I did however get the front shocks and 885 springs assembled by the vendor who I bought the OME kit from
