i had to run spacers with my daystar BB using stock wheels.. you might be able to clear the upper uca bolt with the OME HD.. not positive though.. spacers will give it a nice agressive stance though.. go with spidertrax if you do though.

If you had to run spacers on your Daystar, it should be the same with an OME set up. More lift wouldn't effect where the balljoint is (unless you're running a Superlift because that's got a longer spindle).

As far as spacers are concerned, you can't go wrong with Spidertrax. Rough Country also makes some good ones. If you're looking for some smaller ones like 1 inch, Bora makes those.

You'll have to run spacers. I ran 1.25 topline spacers on my jeep with proper torque. They are hub centric spacers also. I think the spidertraxx are too. The side biters were rubbing on the bolt.
