    So here are my two options at this point:

    OME 3" suspension w/ complete rear leaf pack for $1098

    or

    Front and Rear 5100's and an AllPro 3" lift leaf pack for $700

    How much better riding would the OME be compared to other setup if at all?

    If I went with the 2nd setup, then in the future I would put coils on the 5100's, so would that be a better route to go?

    Advice please :)

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    the 5100's are not long enough for a 3" lift you will need 5125's in the rear 10" stroke but you might need extended bumps.

    Given just those 2 options, I'd choose the OME lift. Seems like a waste to put a nice new leaf pack out back and just just preload the stock coils up front. If it's within your means, I'd go for the OME kit.
