4" OME Lift

Has anybody had a chance to run the 4" OME lift on an LJ?

I believe the only advertised 4" lift from OME is for the JK but the front coils fit the same so I guess you could experiment with it

The kit is incomplete. You still need to purchase control arms. Only parts from that kit I would install on my rig are the coils.

I thought this kit came with spacers cuz it says directly on their page "Old Man Emu replacement front and rear coil springs with spacers for a full 4" of lift."

There is nothing special about the 4" OME lift. It rides very stiffly, as do all other 4" springs. The 2.5" OME lifts are in another class, very soft-riding lifts.

I made one order to Rocky Road Outfitters. I got such poor customer service that I swore never to order from them again.

I thought the RR 4" lift was 2.5 OME springs with spacers? The fact it does not have adjustable control arms, or the proper length control arms, that will effect ride and drivability more then anything else. With proper control arm sizing those coils will be just as soft riding, although with another 1.5" of lift. You "might" not like that, Having a higher center of gravity and softer coils.

Nope. RR special ordered 4" springs from ARB in Australia. But they are non-progressive as are the OME HD springs, and very stiff.
