    So I have the Toytec 2" add a leafs on my non tsb rear springs and I am looking into getting the Ome Rear Leaf springs. Currently my rear springs have some squeaking and I think this would be a nice upgrade to get rid of that and to be more functional. Will the ride be better with the ome's? What would the height difference be?

    The rear leafs get you 2 3/4" over US ( non-TSB ) stock height

    The ride is not really any firmer than my Canadian 4 leaf ( TSB ) pack

    They still can have the same squeaking issues as the stock leafs

    I am at 24 1/2" centre of wheel to underside of fender in the rear

    I do like them .

    I am a carpenter and needed a better platform for carrying weight , for me they are great .

    I'm still chasing a squeak in my pack , but I think I am going to get it figured out .

    With a 200 lb cap they only squatted 1/4"

    I have the OME as well. The ride is probably better for me than with my 2" AAL. I no longer bottom out while towing/hauling. They are 100% better than stock/AAL. I do have the squeaking issue that others have mentioned but the fact I no longer bottom out, I guess it is a trade off.

    why would you do it if you don't have any front suspension lift? and yes they will lift higher than tsp and you will also need break lines

    I have thought about getting the OME springs too but if they still squeak I won't waste my money on them. I want to find out if there is a better solution for the squeak fix than inserting a bike tube or plastic between the leafs. If all else fails I could always do a coil over and 4 link set up!
