Old Man Emu Spring ?

Have a line on some slightly used Old Man Emu 2" springs with less than 5000 miles. Owner switched to Old Man Emu 4" springs.

What do you all think about the quality and durability of the Old Man Emu springs.

I think I can get all 4 for about $150

great reputation but they make a lot of varieties of springs what were it off from weight wise 2 door 4 door heavy light etc and how much lift did they provide? What part numbers are they?

OME is owned by ARB a large manufacturer of quality parts.

We put the OME 2." HD rate springs out my 2007 JK with 50,000+ hard miles on them in a 2012 and they still provided 3" of lift and ride great.

No worries on buying them, used. Very well built springs, they don't sag.

You will need the additional parts that come with the OME lift for proper fitment.

Brake line extensions, longer shocks, rear track bar relocation bracket and 2" bump stop extensions.

I've used OME on ALL of my previous trucks...Mitsubishi Pajero, Toyota Landcruiser, and a Holden Ute ( Australia) and it's held up well to all of the pounding I gave it. I like them so much I'd go with them on my new JK, but I really want 3" lift without spacers or body lift.

i have read that if you get the hd 4 door coils you get at least 3" lift maybe more.
