Looks great ShOV3L! Looks like you're really ready for Hollister this time. My OME lift is scheduled to arrive on Monday according to fine folks at UPS. I will be hanging out in my garage on Tuesday installing it.

BTW, what's is your concern with gearing and larger tires?

Not to be the bearer of bad news....I installed my OME kit (with the help of Toyotatech1) this evening and the 885 springs/N140S shocks rub against the sway bar. I am kinda pissed, now I have to pull it all off and figure something else out. I am not going to grind my sway bar down to squeeze these things in. I would check with OME and the place you purchased your setup to double check this prior to install, but I will know more tomorrow.

Again, I see no way this setup will work without rubbing on the sway-bar and I am not to keen on relocating or modifying it to accommodate the spring/strut setup. I guess All-Pro overcame this with an offset top bracket, OME dropped the ball here.

Great pictures. I have the same toytec setup but with the custom rear coils.
Were you just like :jawdrop: after the lift was installed? I was.
