There is no modification needed if you only run the OME kit. The complication is only due to running the body lift. All you have to do is raise the strut brace the same amount as your body lift. Basically, you need a spacer that bolts on to the top of the strut mount where the brace would normally bolt on, and then you would bolt the brace onto the spacer. My pics aren't great, but on a previous rig many years ago I had a Masterkit1 (out of business) body lift that included the brace spacers I described. Hope this helps:

Ignore the blue strut spacer, what you are looking for is the black piece ABOVE that.

I just googled this for you. I found this available from 4x4art in Turkey, but you could just get something made up locally:

97 Sidekick 4door 5 speed, 1.5 spacer lift, 2" body lift, CJ rims, locked rear, 31's, 4:1 low <SOLD>
01 Vitara 2.0L 5 speed, 2.5" Calmini lift, 2" body lift, Sidekick rims, locked rear, 31's, 4:1 low, 5.13 diffs <SOLD>
03 XL7 2.7 5 speed, stock with 17" low-pro's for now
