    Got the OME set up right now with a AAL in the back, everyone says spacers n blocks what not are bad. I just want a little more clearance maybe like an inch because when i noticed one day i went mudding got home and my fenders are being rubbed got all scratched up n took paint off. Guessing this happens at full flex 275 75s

    Ok.. I guess you could add a block in the back if you wanted to.. but in the front you dont want to go over 3" of lift.
    also remember
    that under full compression your still going to rub, the best thing to do is find out exactly where your rubbing the fenders and then trim accordingly

    The 1" more lift will not help you.
    And yes, don't go over 3" in the front. Where are you rubbing?

    No pics ATM but where the fender flares curve from the side of the car and tuck into the wheel well. Rubs in the middle maybe about 6inchs twords the back.

    Its not the plastic I'm worried about its actually rubbing on the painted body parts. Mahalos for all the tips

    Why not over 3? i know 6 is pushing it with stock parts. Help inform a noob :)

    Above 3" and your cv angles will be too extreme. A 6" lift uses a drop bracket to lower the Cv angles. Generally speaking 6" are for looks and 2.5"-3" are for offroading. Well, that's the consensus but both can be used.
