Now that I have Musclez OME lift...questions on install

OK so I had to pull the trigger on the lift he just took off. And it just arrived lastnight. I did not realize it included 6 rear ISOs, front top plates and clevis...So I want to know how much actual lift you get with all this? Also does this make it level on the front?

If this is giving more lift that I first thought Im thinking about getting the JBA UCAs since I saved a bit.

I plan on installing this in January just after the holidays so still have time to get anything I may need.

It's a 3/8 clevis right?(3 conduit nuts) If so then you WILL need a-arms, unless you choose to just to instal the springs and shocks(I still get spring contact at full droop. I might be able to clock my springs to get rid of it though). In the rear you only need 2 extra rear isolators per side(stock + 2 extra for 3 per side).

This will get you about 3-3.5" and sit level, or very slightly nose high.

This is right after install(with brand new springs and shocks) on 245/75-16s. Literally the week of install and alignment. My driveway isn't the most level down by the street.


This is a month or so later, as things started settling. It's by my girlfriend's house while sitting in the street by a drain.

Unless Im a dork, which is not beyond impossible, its just one metal ring/nut per side. When I looked up clevis images a couple pics showed this item put on the bottom of the strut. So Im assuming here that is what it is, heh.

And on the isolators, would I just put one on top and one on bottom? Like I said he put 3 for each side in the box and have seen pictures again that show 2 on top and one on bottom usually. But if I only need to use 2 , not including the stock one on there to make it more level Im ok with that.

I was only planning on doing springs and shocks so UCAs would not be as necessary, but since its all here I will put it on to get more lift and just buy the arms so I dont have to worry about it.

Most times we do two extra uppers per side and of course one lower ( the stock one) should be level
Should have 3 rings for the clevis ( 3 rings = 3/8 of an inch which gives you 3/4 inch lift )

Those metal rings are my conduit nuts that I used for my clevis. Both sides have 3 each to make a 3/8" clevis lift.

For isolators, there should be 3 on the top(stock + 2 extra), and 1 on the bottom(stock). This is because the top has a part that they slide over that holds them in place.

OK I will check the boxes again, I did not dig every last piece out, just did a quick check, so its possible I missed the other conduit nuts.

So I guess now the question is do I have to get bump stops for the front and rear? I think thiis and the arms is all Im missing at this point.

Yes you need bumpstops for front and rear!
The front you can order the Teraflex ones that we all seem to be running,
and if you want to save a few bucks like a few of us, you can use hockey pucks for the rear bump stops.
Google search rear bumpstops using hockey pucks if you're confused.

OK so now that holidays are over, I finally got a chance to open the boxes up and check around for the other rings. There are 3 clevis rings, not 6...not a big deal as I had no idea anything extra was in this other than springs and shocks.

So now that I know what I have on hand...

front top plates, Bilstein shocks and OME springs

rear OME springs, Bilstein shocks and 6 ISOs...

So what combo will make it ride level? (IE: top plates and only 1 ISO will be level ) Im kinda glad it will be right at or just under 3" to be honest, I will get bumpstops but going to hold off on arms for now.

Yes, you can do it anyway you want, even no top plate but remember if you don't add the clevis you don't need as many iso's in the back

This is what Im trying to find out, if I go with what I have, top plates but no clevis..how many ISOs should I use in back? I guessing since it was 2 with clevis 1 would be the answer, but I want to be level in the end if at all possible.

One extra upper per side should put you pretty much level .
So you'd have one on the bottom per side and two on top per side
