OME 751/764 vs. RTE 2"

I am currently running OME 751HD/764MD springs. I have new RTE RR4(HD)front and RR3(MD)rear in the 2" setup that I was planning on using for my RRC. For those who run the RTE 2", would i gain any lift by swaping out the OME for the RTE 2"? I am assuming the OME springs gave 1.5" , but I didn't measure with the stock springs. Or do I need to go to the 3" RTE spring to get any more lift?

I am just debating the change rather than putting them on to find out.

Thanks,
James

I think you'll get 2" plus lift with the Rovertym springs. Remember you'll possibly encounter driveline vibes with lifts in excess of 2".

Thanks. That is what I am trying to figure out - how much more, if any, lift will I get out of the RTE's. I am already familiar with the driveline vibs issues from the standard OME lift. One call to GBR did the trick. Well, almost. BTW, does anyone know the fender-to-center-cap lengths of stock D90 suspension?

I was just talking to Rovertym, and they said a stock D90 is 20" axle center to fender.
