Need a parts list for mod. Ome

Ok so i am going to go modified ome. I currently already am running a rc bb with bilstein 4600 with mll f150. What else do I need to do this besides the springs

For starters you can't stack that Rough Country spacer on top of the OME springs up front. You need smaller strut spacers from Rusty's or RRO for example. The angles in the front end that a modified OME creates are already pushing the limits. You'll also want an adjustable rear trackbar. The OME HD rear springs by themselves start to push the rear axle to the driver side, ever so slightly, but add more to them and it gets more pronounced.

Track bar is not needed but it's a nice thing to have. Mine is still centered with the stock one.

You have HD OME springs out back with 2" spacers and stock trackbar and your rear axle is centered side to side?

Yes I believe so. If it's not it's off center ever so slightly it's not causing any problems

Interesting. I noticed a considerable shift after modification.




........and I didn't use a full 2" spacer.

Well the adjustable Bilstein struts will give you a bump without using the strut plates - but otherwise yes, the Rusty's or Rocky Road Outfitter's strut spacers are the way to go. The RRO is slightly thicker than the Rusty's and in my case, I didn't see how there was enough thread left on the strut bolts to go any thicker than the .25" Rusty's.

Yeah just put in the 4600 last year so I really don't want to row out more money on new struts
