Confused about OME lift

I want to get the toytec OME 3" 4Runner Lift Kit for my 97'.
Do I need to get new front shocks?
Should I get limiters?
Is this a full 3" lift?
Should I get the Bilstein 5125 for the rear?
What shock do I need for the front?

Thanks

You should be fine with the front shocks but you will need new rear ones and and I recommend getting diff drop also. 3" puts cvs at a harsh angle. I think you won't need a new panhard bar or drop bracket but I would do just to make it right the first time. I helped my buddy lift his 4runner thats how I know a little. Good luck with the lift.

Whats do people think about the Bilsteins compared to the OME shocks?

I imagine the stock front shocks will limit the droop of the front suspension. I plan on using the stock front shocks for a little bit with my 3" ome lift (sitting at my apt. will go in this weekend).
