Jp90Talon I would be driving it around except for the fact that all 4 upper rear shock bolts snapped in the nuts and didnt have the means of removing them.

distortedtj Which OME springs do you have? The LJ OME springs have a higher coil rate than the TJ OME coil by quit a bit. If your spring are the TJ OME springs's going to be a nice soft but spungy ride. The added weight of the LJ isn't much but really plays a role in coil rate needed.

Need suspension advice asap!

To sum it up I am swapping my OME suspension from my TJ onto my new LJ. I have a fab four front bumper and superwich up front and a custom swing out bumper with 33" tire in the rear. In addition I have a 1.25" BL. I have not yet swapped out the suspension but everything else is mounted up. I have noticed quite a bit of sag (esp up front) on the stock LJ suspension where the stock M/Ts are barely clearing with the heavier bumpers and winch. I have sitting in my garage a set of JKS ACOS spacers and 1.75" coil spacers. Should I add the ACOS up front and coil spacers in the rear when I swap over the suspension to adjust for the sag of the extra weight or would that be pushing it. Also if I do this will I have to worry about brake lines? Im up early to head out to get this done so any advice is appreciated.

Edit: Reason I am worried is because I need the room to swap over the 33's from the TJ onto the LJ and it looks as though the OME suspension and 1.25" BL may not leave much room for stepping off paved roads but not sure if the ACOS up front and daystar coil spacers are too much or if there would be any other issues that Im too tired to think of.
