Re: Would this work?

From my research, if those are the F-150 MLL’s then you will get a little bit of rake with this setup. As for the front, people will run the ¼” spacer on top of the strut tower assembly to level out the rake and/or gain an extra half inch in the front. I have heard that the MLL’s will provide suspension support, but you will sacrifice ride quality. Obviously it depends on what you’re going for (towing, ride quality, appearance, off road capability), but thought I would pass along that opinion if it has any effect on your decision. If someone can confirm my research, that would be great. I do not have the OME kit but have been researching the upgrade from my BB.

Re: Looking to lift: No off-roading

if you arent offroading AT ALL, I personally wouldnt drop the $700 on the OME lift. even though its the best bang for the buck overall with on and off road .. as well as being 3" of lift if you go with the HD springs, which is a nice plus... I just couldnt justify $700 just for looks.

just get a 2" BB lift.
RoughCountry (metal spacers)... Daystar (poly spacers)

they cost like $150 and will give you a lifted and level look without you dropping $700. (afterall... 31-32" tires will be running you at least $600)


or you can buy the OME HD lift anyway and I'll trade you my 2" Daystar lift + say..$200 for it. lol

My exact thoughts! I was thinking Bilstein shocks with the RC spacers.

Re: jeep wk lift

There's basically three different levels of lift. 1) Budget boost - quite a few options, gets you high enough to fit roughly 32" tires, usually can run you about $400 in parts 2) OME lift - little more expensive ($700 something) but gets you to that next level. Everything's included and a lot of people are really happy with the quality 3) all out suspension lift - this includes Superlifts, JBA lifts and any of the other big ones. These will run you over 1K for parts and will require cutting, welding, and quite a big of mechanical know how.

If you're going for looks, the BB will do you just fine. If you want to get out and have a little fun off road, the OME works great and you can even modify it to get a little more lift out of it. If you plan on doing more extreme trails or just want you WK to look badass, the Superlifts and more are the way to go.
