Lift it up! - you'll get about ~3" not much more. Check a lot of guys' build threads. I have OME and 265/70/17.

Definitely order the control arms and do the project all at once. I ordered my OME and didn't really think I would need the UCAs, but determined within about 5 minutes of installing it that I did. So I waited well over a month for the OME kit and now I'm stuck waiting for the control arms.
I didn't measure mine but like jlewis said, it's probably right under 3 inches, definitely no more.

Re: ome lift and new a arms
It's sitting on stock 245/65/17 I THINK. Tough to rustle up funds for tires and lift at the same time. I'm definitely picking up some new rubber, but probably not until late summer/early fall in a 255/70 or 265/70 probably. Appearance with stock size isn't ideal, but it's honestly not as bad as I thought it was going to look.

honestly, if youre not intending to wheel the piss out of it then the stockers will be suffice. there are plenty of guys wheeling their WKs with OME lifts with stock UCAs, with no problems.
