    So i think i've finally narrowed it down to OME lift kit, but i'm wondering do you really need to run the OME shocks with this kit, i mean does it work better? cause i was thinking about getting the 5100 all around and just adding the 885 springs...i mean it does come out somewhat cheaper that route...i'm just wondering if i have the 5100s at stock heighth with the 885s will that work just as good? i like the fact that the 5100s have a lifetime warrenty and i liked them on my 06....

    Alot of folks are running the 5100's with the OME springs, and are quite happy. :)

    i personally wanted to stay with the full ome setup. the ome nitrochargers are great shocks and are worth the extra money imo.

    thats what i'm wondering, if it's recommended to run a complete OME....i figured out the numbers and its comes to like 530.00 for the 5100,885,aal vs the 699 for the complete OME kit....like i said i was happy with the 5100s for the little while i had em....ugh decisions...lol i guess it's all a matter of taste...

    Hey I've been kinda reading up on the 885s. And I've been reading that the springs tend to rub on the stock UCAs. Is that true. I mean I know I'm gunna have to eventually spring for new uca but I'm hoping I can hold out for alittle before something major happens.
