OME lift few quick questions

Going to be getting my OME lift before the end of next week. Going on an 05 KJ and wondering about leveling. Basing on the advertised 1.5/1.75 inches front and rear, should I get the trim spacer that says it brings the front up 2 " and then stick a 1/4" iso in the rear?.... or go with the clevis lift in the front and save the extra cost of the trim spacer? I hear that clevis lifts will crush down in time, losing the lift gained so I am just wondering what my options are. I guess I can live with a 1/4 " of rake too..would barely be noticeable I imagine. Thanks for your time and knowledge on this

What about a couple conduit nuts up front as a clevis shim. Then it won't crush down.

I read in my research that they don't support any weight?? Sorry not trying to argue .. I have never done a lift in my life (first 4x4 I ever owned) + first time doing my own project vehicle. A lot of fact from fiction to sort out on the internet when it comes to getting info on anything. So conduit nuts and the max amount of a clevis lift is what ... 3/8 " if I remember correctly but I don't need the full 3/8 " to gain 1/4 " of lift soooo doing the math I figure that to get 1/4 " of lift I would need a 1/8 " movement on the clevis?? I think that's right <<<< this is me after researching Thanks for reading and chiming in

W@hat???
OME 927/ 948 combo gives you 2.5 inches front and rear that BS you found is advertising in Australia for insurance purposes.
Read the threads and you'll see what everyone gets , don't need the trim spacer that just adds more to the spring rate is all

read through my various posts , done over 30 lifts, mostly with OME kits let me know if you have questions
