swingtail82 Installed a set of H&R coilsprings and Bilstein struts/shocks on the wife's MINI....WOW! when I do decide to replace the factory shocks on my rubi I will no questions asked buy the Bilsteins! The OME always get great reviews and the guys down in Aussie Land make great stuff so I wouldn't be afraid of them either.

Mykola7 I am probably going to leave the factory wheels on the vehicle, since I really don't want to adjust the speedo or have problems with any other component.

Thanks for your thoughts

Merle Swaggard They are both great I think ome should revamp the look but the shocks are great. I like the way billstein looks but they are both great IMO

I don't care either way. The work and ride great so I'm happy.

Grog You rarely see anyone owning either brand complain. Don't think you can go wrong between these two.

Ageless Stranger I love my OME shocks and springs.

daggo66 Any of those options will give you a stiffer ride, which is precisely why I switched to the Bilstein HD's. Those two shocks are comparable in quality and ride IMO.

Why the lift? Are you planning on larger tires?

Bilstein or Old Man Emu Shocks

I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara. I probably will not do too much off roading. I am contemplating changing my shocks and have 3 Options. Option 1 is Replace the Factory Shocks with Bilstein Heavy Duty with 0 lift. Option 2 is Replace the Factory shocks with Old Man EMU shocks with 0 lift. OPtion 3 is Replace the Factory shocks and springs with Old Man EMU shocks and springs with 2" lift. What is everyone's thoughts? What are the best shocks out there for ride, performance? If I went with Option 3 will I it change any of my handling, breaking, etc?

Thanks in advance.
