Thought I would share my experience with installing the OME springs.

I decided that I would install Rancho adjustable Quicklift struts on the front to get 2.25" lift and add the OME CS055R springs on back to get 2.5" lift. Thought I would add the D28XL extra leafs for additional load capacity. I already have Rancho adjustable shocks on the back.

The OME springs are notably heavier than stock, even without the extra leaf. Doing the job alone is no fun. But, I finally wedged the springs in place. Had to jack up the frame and lower the axle. Much to my surprise, I gained 4-1/4" lift in back. My truck looks like a ******* farm truck at the moment. See photo.

The ride is firm, not too harsh. Bed bounce is still present but to a lesser degree. There is no "boing" anymore. But it does seem like the truck is too high; there's not much rebound available with the truck lifted so much. I will likely remove the D28XLs to get the truck back down. I contacted ARB via email and they too said that 4-1/4" is too much. So, they'll probably be off within the week.

If you're looking for 4" in back, this is the combo for you.

Now to get the QuickLifts installed...

I don't know if it is just me, but I thought it would look much worse than it does... maybe a bigger lift up front would help resolve the issue?

What you gonna do in the front?
I have Rancho QuickLifts waiting to go on. 4WheelParts is going to install them on Thurs. I started to install them last night myself, but chickened out and decided that I didn't want a spring to hit me in the face. Wasn't quite as easy as I thought it was going to be.

Yeah, right now it's stock in front. It does look taller in person than in the pic. The rear wheelwell is at 44-3/4". The top of the rear bumper is 36" and the top of the tailgate is 62-1/2".

Damn, you could probably hit 3000 lbs in the back of that thing...

Took your advice. Literally. Added 3100#. :D The back end sank back to factory stock height, giving up the 4-1/4" of lift. Looking at the truck you would never know that it was carrying this much load.
