Hi Tommud,

I have at the moment a Full OME all round with 12 mm plates between the body and the top of the front struts and a 10mm thick washer at the Clevis. I am going to replace the new generation of rear OME struts by the OME N132L Long Travel so I can add 2 Rubber Isolators each side of the rear Springs and hopefuly lift the rear again. How far do you think I could go in the Front by adding thick washers between the Clevis and the bottom of the strut but to keep everything in good working order ? I am really wondering if I could reach a 6 in lift that way?
No way to get 6 inches that way, you'll have issues with the spring hitting the UCAs at around 4 inches, so if you went to 6 it would be undriveable.
Most you can add and still be driveable is 3/8 inch clevis and 1/4 inch top plate . To go 6 inches you'll need to move up to one of JeepinByAls 6 inch kits

Thanks Tommud,

I am going to investigate the possibility of having made to measure fenders and stick with 31in tyres for now. I am thinking of adding wheel spacers to compensate the higher center of gravity. Have you ever heard of anyone who tried and experienced problems with those?
