    So, made up my mind I'm gonna do the OME 880/881's to go with my 5100 Bilsteins; I may want a 1" lift, but not if that means I have to do UCA's. If I go with the 880's with the 1" lift, do I need to do the UCA's? If I stick with the 881's I assume their stock, standard height springs? So in short, I may do like a one inch lift, but the UCA stuff may be more than I can do, not sure. If I can do the coil/shock replacement, if I need to do the UCA's, is this significantly more difficult?
