Be advised, OME is on SERIOUS backorder right now.

I placed an order with DPG the Tuesday after they got back from vacation (which was back in April). At that time, I was told it was a 3-4 week wait. No problem as my weekends have been swamped anyway. But in keeping in touch with Dirk, which is great btw, it seems ARB/OME is having records sales this spring and can't keep their parts, including the bumpers, shocks, springs, etc flowing fast enough to the US.

My springs are taking the slow, scenic, meandering, wandering, lost? boat to the US west coast. Hopefully they'll be here soon. Dirk has been very accomodating. I know it isn't his fault, as other OME vendors I've talked with can't get the parts any faster either. Just knowing DPGOffroad is keeping tabs on it makes it a bit easier going.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

Actually I pieced mine together myself from Swiss Mountain (he's a vendor) and saved about $100 over Dirk's basic kit price. Just something to keep in mind.

Dirk at DPG is great. And yes, very serious and extreme back-order, luckily I got mine the other day and it goes on tomorrow.

Found them thanks! I think I'll go that route. I can piece together the kit(which DPG) lists for 649 for 422 w/o the t/c spacers(I'm getting MORE MML and BL) and w/o the rear trackbar bracket which I already have.

Did you experience a front axle shift when putting in your 2.5 springs? I'm going to go with the HD also.

Yep. Haven't done anything to correct it yet (I've only had the kit installed since last weekend). Two options - redrill the OEM trackbar mounting location or get an adjustable trackbar. I'm leaning toward the first option because it's a good bit cheaper.

I haven't measured it, but I'd estimate about an inch. It doesn't seem like it's causing a problem as it is, though - no rubbing or anything that I've noticed. I figure correcting it would increase tire wear, etc.
