Ome hd installed..

So I replaced shocks and springs with ome hd. I also added 2 conduit nuts in the front thinking it ll be a leveling the lift. It rides and handles great. But my issue is the front sits one inch higher than the back! Will it settle and level itself?

Yes its a trick i learned here. 2" diameter electrical conduit nuts. I stacked 2 adding up to 1/4 inch which gives me a total of 1/2 inch lift. Most people go with 3.

The front should settle some after a day or two.
Rear add two (per side) spring isolators and it'll boost it up a little.

Thanks, I always thought the rear was going to be higher because people talk about putting 3 nuts and top spacers. I will add the rear isolators and go from there.

Just ordered the OME HD for my '11. If I install just the springs I will retain the factory rake? Looking to keep the back a little higher so its level when loaded down. I tend to carry a good bit of gear in the Spring-Fall.

I think it will be a little higher in the front. You can always stack some rear spring isolators they'll give you about 3/8 a piece, thats what I'm gonna have to do looks like.
The good thing with the hd is you won't be sagging as much with heavy load.

It took alittle time geting alignment just right with the jba we did get it but my caster is off still off a tad but i no next alignment il get it probaly be dead on.Best investment iv put on is the lift and arm rides 10000 times better and jba balljoint replacement is less work and down time .I myself wouldnt keep the oem arms but alot do use and i wont knock if it works for them.I just decided might as will do it all at the same time and it was the right decision for me cause i didnt want any oem uca alignment problems or replacement in near future.

Usually, if you have a rake pre-lift, you'll have a rake post lift. I did the 3 nuts in the front plus 1/4" top spacers, and 2 extra (for a total of 3 per side) isolators in the rear and without it weighted down, the wheel gap is pretty darn equal.
