Got OME Coils for Christmas and got them installed today. Added about 2-3" of lift in the rear. Probaby need to adjust the front now to the tallest setting on my 5100s.

After having the new coils on the back for a couple weeks, I think I need to lift the front AGAIN. I have the Bilstein 5100s up there with another adjustment slot left. That should give me about 1/2 inch or so. Might need to add some spacers to level it...

Scott, Toytec sells a 1/2" spacer that goes on top of the coil over struts. I bought a pair, but am only using one on the driver side to correct the FJ lean. I think they were around $50.

My next suspension upgrade will probably be a set of 5100's for the front. Let us know what happens when/if you move them to the last slot. I am hoping they will add some support and level me out since I am about a 1/2 inch low in the front.

Brian, how do the spacers get installed? Did you do it yourself?

I didn't do the installation myself. I had it put on when I had the rest of my suspension/tires put on. This is the best pic of the spacers that I have. I can probably take a better one if you would like. I have 2.5" spacers that push the coils down, and the 1/2" spacer goes above the plate between that and the mounting point. Longer bolts were required, but I think that comes with the spacers (not positive as I order my stuff as a package). I don't think a spring compressor would be necessary to just add the top 1/2" spacer. I wish I was more skilled in these things, but I am not. So this is info I can offer. Hope it helps.

This is a link to the plate spacers. This one shows a 3/4", but I think you can get them in any size between 1/4" - 3/4". You might have to call them. Everyone says the support is great. My set up came with the 2.5 inch coil spacers and a set of 1/2" plate spacers.
