OME 4" Coil Springs - or additional Spacers ?

I need about 1.5-2" more lift for the 35" tires that i´ve ordered.

I though about the OME939/OME 946 4" springs and the OME N66L/N67L shocks.
Are they as good as my OME 2.5" OME HD suspension?

Or will some additional 1.5-2" spacers fit on top of my springs?

Here you can see that my small 32" tires are only 1/4" away from rubbing. that´s why i need more lift. and i don´t want to extend the bumpstops.

Whether you want to or not you need to extend your bump stops.

why?
some friends have 3.5" or 4" suspensions and they work good without extended bumpstops.

sorry, it was too early to think about it...
your so right. only longer springs would´t avoid rubbing with the same bumpstops.



my question was how is the handling with the 4 OME spings and shocks. is it like with my 2.5 OME springs/shocks or different?
how much lift give that 4 springs in real?
will it be enough to lower the TC a bit more? i planned to install an SYE next spring.

i know two people that are running the OME 4" springs. they said they were VERY firm springs and yielded closer to 5" with 6cyl/softtop/tire carrier configurations. i'm pretty certain that the OME shocks will help greatly. i have them on my jeep with RE4.5 springs and it made a world of difference in my ride.

thanks.
that sounds good.
i think i´ll replace my 2.5" OME suspension with the 4 spings and 4" shocks in the future.
but i think i´ll need some adj. CAs for that.
