    Hi Jastan,
    You should look at Old Man Emu they do a 2.5 in lift for the KJ and it should be easily available in Australia. I have fitted one to my CRD 2.5 and the only advise I would give you would be maybe not to fit 790 coils at the front if you aren't planning to fit a winch as it does make it a bit stiff at the front. Our CRD 2.5 weighs less that 2.8, about 300 Kg believe it or not.
    The parts are:
    Front Struts: NS131 for CRD
    Back Shocks: NS132 L - Long
    Front Coils: 790 or 928 - 790 are the heay duty
    Back Coils: 948 heavy duty
    Fil.

    Yes stick with OME because that's just less than 2". I put a daystar 2.5" on my 2.5 CRD and had all kinds of problems. That 1/2" really does matter ;-)

    just to give you an idea on the lift I accieved:

    Front: from 17.5 inc to 22 inc (my front shocks & coils were shot)
    Back: from 18.5 inc to 22 inc that is with the Long shocks
