The only additional parts you need to purchase is a pair of front TeraFlex extended bump stops.
It is also a good idea to purchase a pair of All J's polyurethane rear coil spring isolators at time of purchase
if you are going to add some clevis lift.
I found that their rear poly iso's are just that much more skookum and don't degrade/compress as much as
OEM rear coil spring isolators.
(Just my opinion though! And for paltry sum of $25.00 they are well worth it and you get all the parts from
one supplier.)

However, I found that if you are a hard core off road enthusiast like us and clock allot of off road/backcountry
miles (We averaged over the last 4 years 950 off road miles per year. Plus 2600+ travel miles per year) with a
heavy load of camping gear, food and adult beverages, recovery equipment/tools and spare parts, winch and
mount, etc. etc. etc.

Our suspension now needs to be replaced/refreshed all around because everything has gotten to soft and
spongy for our liking and hits the front and rear bump stops regularly.

(But keep in mind that my wife and I get out and off road for at least 16 to 20 weekends per year!)

Ah thanks. Mine runs along the axle. So I should be good without it.

I've just read this today as I am about to begin installing my OME lift with medium coils up front and standard rate coils in the rear and nitrocharger sport shocks all around. I paid nearly the same for parts as you indicate for parts and install. Therefore I'm wondering what you mean by OME HD lift.

Anyway, hope things went well for you. Please let me know what you got for parts and what you think about them. Now it's time for coffee, tools, and the Destroyer album (probably three times over followed by some "calming" Judas Priest).
