    Sound like they should be. OME springs are just replacement springs for the front IIRC. Why are you replacing them?

    The only problem with OME springs is that I have a number of times that they tend to sag a lot sooner over time versus the OEM springs.

    rick I am guessing that you are like me and went to the Toytec site to look at lift kits. Seeing that the OME spring kits were a little more expensive I thought I would go for the "better" one. I am now changing my mind and going for the spacer lift kit. They utilize the stock springs that dont sag. I have heard a lot about the OME spring saging. I dont see any reason to go for that kit. Its just more money.
