    Cool, thanks guys.

    Anyone have pics for install? I'm also planning to do the clevis lift and rear isolaters at the same time.

    Install very easy, they just sit on top of the coilover and then bolt back up in, what lift are you using ?
    Just asking before you install too much as far as top plate, and 3/8 inch clevis so you do not have issues later.
    Do you have JBA upper control arms ?

    OME Springs and struts all around, front and rear + JBA UCAs. Yeah ive read 3/8 is max for clevis, is a spacer really necessary to keep it even all the way around??

    IF, you have OME 927/948s it will sit flat level with nothing else added
    If you are going to add a 1/4 top plate and 3/8 inch clevis then you will need to add at least two extra upper isolators ( not spacers ) to sit level since you will be raising the front 1.25 inches
    Then by the look of your wheels , make sure you have plenty of rear bumpstop so as to not contact your flares
    Proper backspacing and width of wheels only 2 inches of hockey pucks needed
    But that is with 8 inch wide wheel with 5 inches of backspacing or 7 inch wide and 4 inches of backspacing

    My factory rear bumpstops that stick down from the rear upper isos are long gone...do I need to replace AND do the hockey pucks? or just the pucks?

    Yes and Yes
    You need both
    factory bumpstops and at least two perside hockey pucks bolted down to the lower spring perch
