Wow, I come back to the board after a few months in Iraq... and you finally got rid of Delphi! Anyway, I'm coming home on leave in a week or so, and I just ordered a set of Burgs and OME leafs from wheeler's. I have an 01 X-cab TRD, which currently has All-pro upper arms and stock shocks up front, and stock leaves with Downey shackles in the rear. My question is, how much lift can I expect from the OMEs with the long shackles? I asked Wheelers, and was told that my 1.25" shackles with 1.5" leafs will add up to almost 5" in the rear unloaded. My truck is already stinkbugged with negative-arch stock springs and the sagging coilovers up front. Does anyone have experience with a similar setup, so I have an idea in advance if I should remove a leaf from my OMEs? I hate to ask such a noob question, but I have no intention of spending my 2 weeks of leave trying to level my Taco... Any help is greatly appreciated!
