OME springs - Need advice...!

hi,

at the moment i have 2" spacers over the stock TJ springs.
i want to replace that with some 2" OME springs because the handling isn´t very good and the front is about 2" lower than the rear.

OME has two different springs for the front (OME932-light load / OME933-heavy load) and two different for the rear (OME941-light load / OME942-heavy load.

beacause of my heavy front bumper and the sagged front with the stock (rubicon) front springs i think i should order the HD springs for the front.
but what´s about the back? HD or LD springs?
i want that the front is as high as the back with the new OME springs.

i drive a '06 TJ 4.0L with auto tranny and AC.

what springs should i order? what would you do...?

thanks in advance.


here´s a pic of the sagged front (fuel-tank is full and a 80 kg person is on the rear seat):



and pics of the installed parts/bumpers:

I don't have a clue....but you could always try calling EMU direclty and asking them....they should be able to help you pick the right one.

So you don't like the raked look on your Jeep huh?

How big is your spare? are you going to cary a Hi-lift jack in the back eventually or any racks? Think of what you might end up installing on your jeep and then go from there.
