    OME 3" lift, LR UCA's, 1.25" wheel spacers, custom Homertaco grill, horn relocation, BFG KM2's 285/75-16, alarm w/ remote start
    I have pretty much decided that i will be going with the OME lift kit from Toytec but had a question about the rear set up. If I go with the Toytec add a leaf standard will that make me level with the front or will that give me more of a factory rake? I plan on getting the spacers for the front so i will get the full 3" of lift. Any words of advice would be helpful. Thanks.

    Yes you should be level or have a very slight rake with 3" up front and the AAL in the rear

    I'm thinking of the same set up and was hesistant on the top plate spacers. Don't those stiffen up the ride, making it ride harsh since they're pre-loading the springs?

    Just today I rode in my friend's 2009 DCSB with this exact set up minus the spacers, with 885 coils. So he's at about 2.25"-2.5" up front. It rode very nice on-road. It's got about a 1/2 height difference being higher in the rear.

    I have the 885x coils and the Dakar rear leaf pack on my DCLB 4x4 .

    I went without the top spacers up front and got 2 1/2" of lift in the front and 2 3/4" of lift in the rear

    Kit with spacers level it out nicely. Ride is good with the spacers, no complaints

    I put my top plate spacers in above the whole coilover? They just push the strut down a half inch from its normal mounting point. My ride is exactly the same as it was before I put it in, justa bit higher.
