ome lifts

The jeep i bought was used a great one with low miles , loving it first jeep ever .. I noticed parked next to other jeeps it sit higher , I seen it had a body lift 1inch , but there was noway that was it. Anyways got under it last night because I have seen its shocks were yellow and lucky for me on one of them I could read Old Man Emu or I guess OME . So anyways are these lift kits good ? And what different hight levels these lifts from OME came in ??

from what I have heard they are really good lifts, never owned one myself, I think they range from 2" to 5" suspension lifts but dont quote me on that..

2.5 in approx. pretty much the best you can get. well done. they also might have just put the shocks on. are the coil springs powder coated black?

Thanks

Can anybody explain why the spring that shows on the bottom right picture on this post looks like it is bowed to the outside? Is this normal? I take it that those tires are the stock tires? If that is the case, I now have an idea what mine will look like with Rockfather by OME. Thanks for the preview.

I was looking at the same thing. Hopefully its just the camera angle because that's not normal.

I had the same observation and asked what track bar and lower arms he was having.. Indeed without lower and or upper arm length compensation the coils might see a side load.. Similar side loads without adjustable track bar...

It may be some track-bar adjustment is necessary. Just needs to shifted to passenger side a bit.

Yes you can fix it. Its not a terrible thing. Look at the pic I re-posted. I put a red circle on the adjustment bolt. Your axle just needs to be centered.

No, its not a control arm. Its the track bar and its adjustable just for this reason. It needs to be adjusted out about 1/2". You will have to put a tape measure on it to get ti correct. Just take it loose at the axle side, loosen the lock nut and spin the bolt out. Do this until both wheels are centered in the wheel wells.

My jeep would need to be off the ground on the front to do this correct ? And from what you said my front tires should be dead center of wheel well??I am going to take a couple of pics of the tires from straight ahead , to my untrained eye they look like they are where they should be
