Rear end help! ;)
 
Alright guys, I wanna rake my rear end a bit over the front, its level now with the RC 2 inch spacers. I talked to Tosh and his idea was to pull the spacers, struts and springs and get a set of OME springs and superlift struts for the added lift, would that give me what im looking for? And would anything contact the gas talk skid and keep it from going low enough on the drivers side? Help a brotha out!

The easiest thing to do is add some washer spacers on top of the RC mounts. Should be ok, right guys?!

Yea but if I do what tosh said I can also get more travel from the live rear end. And idk if I'd be comfortable adding spacers lol

You're also talking about a lot more money too. If I knew now what I knew then I'd have the SL already, know what I mean?! haha :)

Word on the street is the ome springs are 80$ and the superlift struts are 30$ each... True or false?

I had this issue for a while with my OME lift before I decided to hack up spacers for the rear.

My suggestion was also going to be the rear coils.

I was thinking about the same thing. The OME struts I believe are 145 a piece give or take. I was thinking to go will OME coils all the way around and get some 2" longer shocks either the rocky road ones or the OME ones. This is pretty much what the budget boost kit of this is sold for one rocky road for like 389. I am just curious about the negative effective on the struts cause I have seen alot of guys do this on other forums.

Omlet had a new idea, monroe load leveling struts... apparently for an extra inch, which would be exactly what I want for the rear over the front.... opinions?

Struts are in the front. I thought you wanted extra lift in the rear?

Whoa! Think you read into the PM wrong lol. If you wanted more in the rear I would just go with the OME HD coils and maybe some longer shocks, and ditch just the rear spacers. The superlift rear standard shocks are about $29 a piece. Then if its not enough rake for you I'd add a spacer. The front i would leave alone if you're just trying to achieve rake.

Exactly what I was saying.
