    I have a '13 DBCB short bed I've already installed the heavy front & rear OME springs. After awhile its dropped in height. I see where some people ad a plate to the lift?

    Whats that? Its on the front spring I'm guessing?

    Right now I don't have a front aftermarket bumper on & I'm hesitate about adding a ARB (they look the best) because of the weight.
    On past Land Cruisers they were so heavy they sagged the suspension so I want a little bit more lift out of the kit.
    Thanks

    How long since the install?

    I installed a top plate spacer on 885 coils to achieve the full 3" of lift:

    You can see them at the top of the strut assembly (Silver 1/2" spacers)

    I measured the front for OZ (Hi OZ :wave:)in another thread about my OME lift install and there was zero change in measurements after 2 months of being installed. I am running an OEM bumper. Thread: http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd-gen-builds/293161-ome-kit-finally-installed.html

    1/4" top plates will get you 1/2" up front , you can add the OME Dakar AAL the d29xl , which will get you about 5/8" out back
