Default piecing OME suspension kit

Hi, I am trying to piece together an OME suspension kit instead of buying one from rocky road outfitters (due to their bad reviews). I need the dumb down version b/c I have no idea what I need to get. This is what I have so far... (87 samurai - using as daily driver)

1. qty 2 - front shocks
2. qty 2 - rear shocks
3. qty 4 - spring bushing kits
4. qty 2 - front dakar leaf springs
5. qty 2 - rear dakar leaf springs
6. qty 1 - steering stabilizer

do i need to get new u bolts as well? and if so, do i get the OEM length or the 2"extended length?

do i need to get new extended brake lines? a fitting kit for the steering stabilizer? shackles?

thanks, diego

I'd go with new U bolts. It's worth the peice of mind to know you're not putting a fatiged 25 year old part back on with your new springs and shocks. Std. length will work. They were out of the std. length when I ordered mine and they sent the extended instead. Cut them off with my die grinder. You'll like the ride of the OME over the stock springs. The shocks are worth the extra cost, too. I ran stock shocks with mine for a year and when I switched to the OME shocks the ride was tons better.
