Flyboys, cancel the order for the RC lift, set the front 5100s at 2" lift, order OME 2" lift springs in the rear with the money saved from cancelling the RC lift and call it a day.

...OK the OME springs will cost about $30-$40 more than the RC lift... not a big deal.

Roger that. If it sags too much for your liking I actually have a set of rear OME HD springs i could sell (i swapped them with superlift springs). I'm about 45 minutes away from Cherry Hill so just shoot me a PM if you think you'll need them.

Yes and get the MD coils so there isn't a huge difference in spring rate

You can get the rustys rear coil spacer and use that in place of the lower rear coil isolator, it will give you about 1" of rear lift. You don't want stock coils up front and OME HD in the rear, its to big a difference in spring rate.

Besides OME the only other suspension kits we have are the 4" superlift and JBA's highly priced lifts. There are other lifts out there but not many on the forums as most others are not that good. Hence why everyone says go OME cause of the quality.

Will the OME MD work with my stock air bags that are inside my rear coils?

How much of a ride difference would you get with a RC spacer lift compared to stock?
