    I am deployed right now, about to come home, present to myself :D was the OME lift W/ the OME Dakars leafs

    Anyone who has done the self install have any advice or tips?

    Also, I've found the PDF install files for the lift and front diff drop, but no luck finding one for the rear OME leafs... I googled it found a few write ups on it...i swear i saw one on the toytec site at some point though...I dunno maybe I just went full retard and didn't see it :confused:

    Where is a good place to get/barrow a "SPRING COMPRESSOR"

    THX in advance

    Very nice, will def be referencing this during the install, and the Rec for pre measurement of drivetrain being taken has been noted :)

    I have not purchased longer brake lines, is this a must?... looked like it helped out a lot

    you can rent a spring compressor from most auto parts stores, or you can take it to a shop and have them put it together fo not much more , also if you plan on doing UCA's don't forget to get new UCA bolts

    just did mine. took my spring and shocks to a local tire tire and they swapped it for $50. I don't have brake lines yet. if you don't do any hardcore wheeling it'll be ok. if i had to do it again i would of picked a cooler day to do it:D

    ok so once its compressed it will stay assembled as one unit and you can just pop it in yourself. I guess i though this was something that had to be done while physically putting it on the truck. correct me if I'm wrong

    Also looks like you still have stock UCAs... any alignment issues?

    Yes it stays as one unit. I don't know about just "pop" in. i had to use a crow bar to get it in. Here's a tip: do a dry fit first, make sure the bottom of shock fit the slot on the lower arm, you might have to do a little grinding to make it fit. and those are DSM uca's.

    I did my OME install 3 days ago basically by myself. There was a guy there who was kinda supervising and helping out when I got stumped. It was 6 solid hours. But I am not the most mechanically inclined. Drivers side coil over did just go in pretty quick. Passenger was pry barring like a mofo. But once it gets going it seemed to go ok.
