Supplementing existing OME Suspension to move from 33" to 35"

Can anyone input whether it would be worthwhile to supplement an existing OME suspesion when changing from 33" to 35". If so, which are the best options for a 2012 Rubi.

I am running 37's with an ome 3" without issues ! Flat or trimmed flares for 37's. Didn't do anything for my 35's rubbed just slightly on the fenders but bumpstop extensions took care of that!

Hope this is what u were asking !

Assuming you have atleast 2.5" of lift height. That's all you really need.
If you rub, flat flares and some minor trimming. Bumpstop extensions also like said above.
