OME lift

3" OME front lift with shocks/coils - Toytec Lifts: Toyota Lift Kits: FJ Cruiser Lift Kits, Tacoma Lift Kits, Tundra Lift Kits, 4 Runner Lift Kits, Sequoia Lift Kits, Toyota Truck Lift Kits

Anyone running this; anyone combine it with the CST spindle?

Can you combine the OME with spindle and 2 inch spacer?

I'm not paying for the coil over combo with cst spindle .

It's gonna b a process for me; wife just ane me the go ahead for a bigger lift... So I'm wanting 5-7 inches. From some kinda of combo.

What's my option to get 2-3 inches of lift on the rear ( no blocks)

Thanks in advance.

I didn't buy a 40k truck to drive thru the mud; I got a 4 wheeler for that

OME add-in leaf pack and Coachbuilder1's 2" shackles will put you right in the middle of that range.

my wife drives my truck pretty often, and she was not really wanting the 7 inch lift.... nor did she like the price.

but this option she agreed with and i like it

The 2wd trucks have a limiting factor which is the upper and lower control arms. Anything higher than about 8+" of total lift up front is really stressing the front suspension.

If your goal is 5-7" you can easily and safely accomplish this with a set of CST spindles
OME 612 coils/struts a full OME leaf pack, OME rear shocks and a set of my +3" shackles. This will lift the front approx 7" and the rear approx 4.75".

If you wanted to be closer to 5" a set of CST spindles and your 2" spacer would get the front there. 1" AAL and my +3" shackles for the rear. This method has been used by allot of guys too. IMO the factory coils are too soft for the weight of the truck. Handling and feel are both sacrificed by the soft coils.

if 7" isn't too tall for you and your budget allows the:

CST spindles
OME 612 coils
OME front struts
OME full leaf pack
OME rear extended shocks
My +3" shackles

Would be the system I would choose.

what should i expect to pay for the install of the OME front kit and shackles...... i have a friend who said he will do it for free.

here is the issue.... dealership said that they will install the OME front kit and the shackles and honor the warranty. but they have not done this style lift and wont commit to an install price... how long should this take??

i can save money now and let my buddy install it, he runs a collision center, but i get no warranty.... my truck only has 15k miles.... i i really want that warranty coverage as long as i can have it..

so save money now and no warranty coverage on the lift.


or pay dealer and have warranty coverage??

Yeah, have your friend do the install. If I can do the OME install then just about anyone can and it really was not that bad. My only recommendation is to only touch the LCA's and leave the UCA's alone since it sounds like a lot of people who mess with the UCA's end up jacking the CV Boots. If your friend has done this before I think 3-4 hours in a reasonable estimate. If he has never done this before but has a pretty good idea of what/how to do it maybe add another 1-2 hours. I purchased my struts pre-assembled from Toytec though and that saved some time since I did not have to compress the springs and I think it was well worth the $100 they charged to assemble them.

I think he might be worried about the steering rack.

As far as an install quote, if you are going with CST and OME, it is no different than them replacing your stock spindles, and replacing your stock struts. I would guess they'd want 6+ hours @$100/hour...or more. If you go with the OME leaf pack in the rear and shackles, that is a 3 hour job for an inexperienced person like me, in the driveway. I'd guess the dealership would hit you up for 4+ hours for that. So, my guess is a minimum of 10 hours labor at a dealershit.

Have your buddy do it, and reward him with some beer . Or, tackle it yourself.

If you buy the ome stuff from Toytec and want to save a bit of effort avoiding the spring compressor they now offer "assembly of front OME coilovers, with new top mounts and hardware for $110.00!"

That should save you a lot of work if you do it yourself and if the dealer does it, I would think that would more than payitself in labour charges.

thanks guys!! appreciate the posts.

here is why im concerend so much about the warranty aspect.....
my f-150 had spacer kit, blew out the passenger side cv joint, shock, and damaged the coil,,,, basically the whole assembly fell apart while i was making a right turn..... had to replace the bumper and some of the fender.... that is when i upgraded to a full suspension kit.... it was $300 more to upgrade to skyjacker kit then replace just the front passenger asembly.

im just worried about another disater......

with the lift im doing and my truck being a 2wd..... will my cv angles b out of wack and over stressed?? will the steering rack b stressed??

I would say if you are that worried about it then just bite the bullet and get it done through the dealer for peace of mind. Personally, I just don't trust dealers/Toyota enough when it comes to this type of claim to say that they will not try to wiggle out of it anyway. I have an aftermarket warranty on my Tundra b/c I am hopeful that there would be less hassle if I have an issue but hopefully I will never have to find out.

Beings you're 2wd you don't have to worry about CV angles (there are no cv's or drive shafts on your truck) The only thing to worry about is wiping the smile off your face after the install is complete If yourself and your friend have the time to remove the factory parts and install the new aftermarket parts you will not only save $ but gain the experience you didn't have the day before. If you get stuck anywhere Post, PM or give me a call. There are many willing to help and you can do this. The install is very straight forward and like 2010CrewMaxTRD, Bad Dad's Tundra, Sngo and theoat all know, there are 100 ways to do this job. You can do this!

I called CB 2-3 times during my install. He was actually crazy enough to keep answering the phone Also, what he says about gaining the experience is un-measurable, I feel like I can do anything I need to do to my Tundra after tackling the OME lift, diff drop, rear shackles and rear shocks (and all of that was done on one Saturday all by myself so it's not too bad).

^^^^that.

All you have to do is take it apart once, and put it back together, and you will learn a lot about your truck. The first side might take you a while, but then you'll have it figured out, and the other side will take half as long. I'm a mechanical idiot, but I was able to do it without killing myself....

Once you figure it out, you'll understand other ways of tweaking it in the future, if you choose to do so.

Bloody knuckles heal up in just a few days. . Keep your young children away, cuz you will cuss, a lot.. You will be sore the next day, for a couple days, most likely because you used muscles that you aren't used to using. 800mg of ibuprofen every 8 hours and a cold beer (or 24) fixes that
