OME MD, now want more!
 
Just installed an OME MD and was thinking about adding the 1/4 spacers to the front to get an extra 1/2 inch in the front. Who makes rear 1/2 inch spacers as I can't seem to find anything out there... What is everybody using to get that modified OME in the rear?

Since the rear sits a little lower than the front, most guys will use a 1.5" spacer in the rear.

Would that give it a raked look instead of level?

Omelet 06-01-2013 08:26 AM

Yes a little. What are your hub-fender measurements right now front and rear?

21.75 front and 20.75 rear. So I guess it would even it out. How hard is it to get that spacer in cuz it was hard enough getting things to line back up with just the ome spring installed

Ya that would bring you up to about 22.25" front and rear. You can disconnect the rear shocks, sway links, track bar, brake lines, and notch the fuel tank skid for UCA clearance. All of that will allow the axle to drop far enough to get the coils in and out easy. I use a ratchet strap to help realign the track bar.

Ok where would I find the rear spacers? Can't seen to find them in that size

Omelet 06-01-2013 10:55 AM

Instal a set of these without the rubber coil isolator on the spacer end, and you will get 1.5" of lift:

And here is the strut spacer:

Awesome thanks for the help. Would you recommend a adjustable track bar?

Omelet 06-01-2013 11:10 AM

Do you plan to wheel it and really flex it out? If so then I'd say, yes get one. You not and you don't mind the axle being slightly over more to one side, then don't bother.

I got an all metal 1" rear spacer from BDS suspension.

WieSeL 06-01-2013 01:40 PM

Would rather do it right instead of half ***'in it. Probly get it before the spacer. Is there a particular way of setting it up?

WieSeL 06-02-2013 07:12 AM

Now are the OME shocks long enough for an extra spacer in the rear?

I made mine 1/2" longer than the stock bar and that got it about perfect. It really just depends how far off the axle ends up being. It's better to have the axle either perfectly centered or slightly to the passenger side. That way the drive shaft will stay off the fuel tank while wheeling.

The stock shocks are 24" extended and the OMEs are 26". With a little more work you can run 28" extended shocks for a little more travel.
