So I'm thinking of going with this setup. Thoughts?

OME suspension, with medium coils (for 100-180lbs of extra front weight), leaving in my spacers, OME nitrocharger sport 90010 shocks, Toytec SuperFlex coils in the back, with OME 60080 rear shocks, and rear stone guards

And the ICON Uniball UCA

I don't have experience with any of these products, so any advice is appreciated. And can I leave the spacers I have in (just a 1.5" leveling kit), or would that stress the suspension components too much?

I love my OME suspension - even though I realize it's a bit different than the FJ. I have the heavy duty springs for full armor and plate bumper, and I don't have the plate bumper but I think it still rides great.

And I also think the LR UCA is a great deal and you'll get great alignment out of 'em - plus they're maintenance free.

I also have the OME coils in the rear...a bit stiffer than the stock ones, but have settled a bit and ride much better now.

I also 2nd the LightRacing UCAs. They are a good product and cheaper than the Icon UCAs. They also come with the holes for the brackets attached to the stock UCAs. If you do go with Icon UCAs, make sure you get the adjustable ones. I think they offer ones that aren't.

Well I happened to see the sale from Metaltech on the Icon Stage II with LR UCAs, and it was basically the same price as the kit I was putting together. So I opted to go with that. Yay ICON!
