So, youre talking.. OME HD front coil springs.. with MLLs in the rear.. and Bilstein struts or shocks?... sounds kind of like a Frankenstein suspension. haha Will this also make my stance level? I prefer to have a more even stance instead of the rake. If you ever gets yours in, let us know.. this could be an option.. if not, I may just go with the Bilstein HDs all around like you said.. but which will be less $$$..hmmm

I am saying, go OME HD springs all around with Bilstein struts up front and MLL's in the rear. That will give you 3 inches of lift front and back.

If all you want is to fit 285's then you just need a BB with Bilstein HD's and a pinch weld mod.

Re: Suggestions for extra lift boost?

From my conversation with Kolak it seems the Bilsteins have better overall characteristics, but the OME shocks are longer so better so off-road. Since I spend most of my time on the road I will stick with Bilstein for my shocks.
