ARB OME Long travel shocks ride amazing

Just installed the long travel ARB OME shocks on my JK last night. Wow it rides better than stock now.

The only thing I had to do was bend out the rear axle shock brackets on the bottom because the new shock bushings were a bit to big.

Otherwise easy....

ARB told me this needs to be done often because they are really torqued down when installed at the factory.

yeah those OME shocks do not fit well into the shock mounts at first. once you get them in though, should be all set. Worst part is really how all that paint comes off. Wish they just wouldn't paint the bushing!

It's hit and miss I guess. Mine went on fine, no paint on the bushings.
