Re: another lift installed

yea. thats what I figured. Thanks, Rob. that would end up costing me like 500, might as well just spend 700 on the full OME.. i think I will just wait a year or so and stick with my daystar and stockers all around and then maybe swap it out for the full OME when then time and money comes.

Re: another lift installed

I honestly don't see how adding a strut spacer to the Daystar would hurt the ride after adding some bilsteins. The Daystar is on the short side of budget boost and the strut spacer from Daystar is at the bottom of the strut.

What are your Hub to fender measurements? You could be asking for some major front end issues.

Re: another lift installed

Everything up to 3" is OK. All the angles are still within specifications. so no major problems. Above that you need additional modifications.

Sorry but that is not true. Any lift over stock changes angles and can cause problems.
