Could be the first time I've heard of 4WP giving out decent advice. Usually they want to push their ProCrap stuff on you! Lot's of guys run the OME 2.5 set up, and I've rarely heard of anyone complaining about the set up. The only draw back in my mind is the TC drop kit . . . BOOOOOOO
. Personally I'd rather give up that extra .5" of lift and not have to drop the belly . . . never understood why OME doesn't just sell a 2" kit without the drop, but that's just me. Usually I'd just go with a 2" BB like the one from RE, but on a 99, your springs have probably seen better days, so I'd probably want to get new coils. Bilstein makes a good shock, people love the OMEs, and the RE MonoTubes are okay too . . . just stay away from the RE twin tube and pretty much any Rough Country shocks.
