OME Shocks and Springs

I am trying to build my lift and have decided to go with the OME shocks, my question is for best result should they be paired with the OME springs for the best ride quality, or would I be just as happy with the Rubicon Express springs with the OME shocks? I like the RE kits, have everything I need BUT the OME shocks. Or if someone has a better suggestion for Springs let me know.

Thanks

I had an OME 2 1/2" lift kit on a 94 Land Cruiser and really liked it. Their products are top of the line.

what OME shocks are you thinking of going with? N66 or N66L? What lift height? Do you have bumpstop extensions?

I have the re 4.5 and ome shocks. And love the ride. Qualities a lot better than stock was.. Can't ask for much more. Re has one of the best short arm kits on the market. Expensive but deff worth every penny to me.

I run a RE 3.5" standard lift with OME extended travel shocks. I love the ride. It handles beautifully on and off road.
