So Im trying to figure out what to do with my lift. On one hand I really would like to get the OME 1.5" lift kit
because it comes with shocks and transfer case drop hardware. However, its $810. I pieced together a 2" setup with OME leafs, skyjacked coils, U-bolts, and brake lines for about $550. However, it wont come with shocks. Im looking for a 2.5" overall lift so if I go the route of the 1.5" OME I will be adding spacers and shackles if needed.
My questions are:
If I do 2.5" lift, the brake lines and possibly the TC drop but what else is potentially required? I dont need to adjust the pitman do I?
Is it recommended to get new control arms?
What would be the best route to do the lift? I understand shackles and spacers do exactly do great things for the ride and longevity of the suspension.
This is the first lift Im actually going to do myself and its so mild that its tough to find a kit or information that has everything I need. Thanks!
