    I know I know, another lift question.
    I'm sorry fellas but this is all new to me.

    I'm thinkning about getting this lift from Toytec.
    http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.ph...ategory_id=64&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72

    ----OME3-05-AL----
    Included in kit:
    FRONT: (2) OME 884 standard/light load front lift coil springs
    Optional med and heavy coils can be selected but require OME N140S shocks sold separately
    Also includes ToyTec Top plate spacers for a full 3" front lift & (6) top plate studs.
    REAR: (2) 2" lift ToyTec Add-a-leafs by Alcan spring (a long add-a-leaf for the best ride), w/OEM style anti-friction Pads, & new leaf spring center pins.



    I plan on going with the 885 coils as well as Blistien 5100 all around.
    Question is two fold. Anyone have this lift? Thoughts on it? Can I set the Billies to 2.5" on the front without any ride issues?

    wat?
    w/ that setup, u get the lift from the coils. if u get the 5100's, u set them at 0 and get the lift strictly from the coils. if u just want the 2.5" of lift, just get the billies and dont mess w/ the OME coils

    X2, the billies are not extended travel so I would not crank them up any when installed with OME.

    Why do you want the 5100s?? The OME shocks and springs are made to go together- The shocks are valved for those springs. So if you are going

    If you do want the 5100s- Just get those. If you want the OME springs-Get them with the OME shocks imho.

    I want the springs for the lift and I assumed the 5100's would give me a better ride quality over the OEM.
    This isn't the case?

    In my sig
    Yes 5100's would give better ride than OEM(Original Equipment Mfr). But OME(Old Man Emu) Springs work best with OME(Old Man Emu) shocks.

    I hope this makes more sense. I mix up OEM and OME all the time.

    What Toytec said- I have all the same parts as in that kit- Totally worth it!! (and no wait for the 5100s on backorder)

    Well I bought the OME kit and am just waiting for it to be delivered.
    I went with the top plate spacers, does that mean I will need new UCA's?

    Yes, you'll need extra camber and caster adjustment to get decent alignment at 3" of lift.

    With shipping it was $1,030 ish.
    Shipping was pricey, around $300, as I'm in Vancouver Canada.

    Would it be nuts to ride it around for about a month without new UCAs?

    Just bought a house and move in on the 15th. Time to start pinching pennies.

    Brunes, did you install in Upper Control Arms or did you opt out of the additional spacers?

    Should be fine for short trips without the UCAs. If you do any significant highway driving it might get dicey.
