I originally ordered the full OME kit from RRO but they were taking forever to get everything in. I found the OME kit at Steel Armadillo in stock so I ordered it from them and cancelled my RRO order. My questions is......RRO sold the OME kit with a free spacer/packer kit for the front to remove the rake(they didn't have those in stock either). Who else sells the same thing? I also have a Wam front bumper on order as well as a Warn winch, which will compound the rake problem I would assume. I HATE a nose down stance, so I want to make sure I have what I need to make it sit level before I start. Any advice on what I should order and from where is appreciated.

i went with one from rustys offroad, have a ton of their stuff on my xj always been a good company to deal with. But like @rblapham said check that section and there are quite a few options.

Yea, I always search extensively before posting. Seems to be a lot of people’s default answer though. I really appreciate your input. What size spacers take the rake out? 2 inch? Or the 1/2” strut plate spacers?

i was trying to maximize lift so I went with the two-inch spacer.

I'm more concerned with the jeep sitting level when I'm done. Do you know which spacers would achieve that with the full OME lift?

i would just go with the 1/2 in strut plate. 2 inches in front but not the back would give the opposite rake and you'd be looking like all those stupid Carolina trucks....

Wouldn't it make sense to just measure how much the rake is off on your vehicle and decide from there?

Well I don’t know how much it is sagging from when it was new, plus I didn’t know if the OME suspension kit raises the front any on its own. I was hoping someone who had done the OME suspension could give me some insight. I’m also putting JBA upper control arms, new Moog lower control arms and ball joints while I’m under there.
