Haha OME is regarded as one of the best manufactures in the business.

I love my OME suspension

mrcarcrazy 04-05-2010 02:48 PM

I want OME. now I'm all sad.

I wonder how quickly the bruises would heal if I just went ahead and ordered it and didn't tell the ol lady? hmmm. nah I'll pull that trick on the Blower for the other car.

They are very very good. I love the ride both on road and trail. Just got back from the badlands, and they did very well.

It's better to ask forgiveness than to ask for permission :rofl:

I like them, but I wish that I would have gone with the medium duty springs. It is more rough of a ride in town than stock, but smotther on the freeway for some reason.

dirtyhead09 04-05-2010 05:44 PM

Well that all answers my question...thanks.

i don't mean to spread any bad vibes here, and OME is certainly a great quality product, but doesn't anyone also feel that they're a bit too soft? i've had the whole (2") setup for a year now and when i got people in the rear seat they keep telling me that it feels very wobbly back there (in turns). i'm actually replacing the OME shocks with the adjustable procomp MX6's in a few days, hoping for improvement...

or could it be just the springs, which i think are the softer ones in my case..?

i was also thinking of replacing them with the heavy load version. when i have two people of average weight in the rear seats, the whole back sags pretty badly.

Don't know what to tell you there... But then again, i have the heavy duty springs since I have a hard top and other extras.
No wobble in my rear end (unless my foot hurts and I'm walking funny) ;)

cavediverjc 04-05-2010 11:29 PM

I don't carry passengers, so I have no ass wobbles.

dan188 04-06-2010 10:35 AM

.... no body likes ass wobbles....

I ordered the long travels to go along with my RE 3.5 standard lift. They were only an additional $149 on top of the lift from 4x4groupbuy. That's a pretty damned decent deal.

cavediverjc 04-06-2010 11:03 AM

That's a helluva deal!!
