OME Springs question
 
Just wondering, could I swap out the Rough Country springs that came with their 2.5" lift with OME 2.5" lift springs?

Yes. Swap the shocks, too.

If you go with OME springs.. go for their NitroChargers as well... They perform very well together..

yeah you could do that, the OME 2.5" springs will probably yield more lift for you as well.

:rolleyes: The RC9000XL shocks are pretty hard to beat, you can adjust them for your ride satisfacation

I have the RC 2.2 shocks. I am not unhappy with the ride quality actually, as most people complain rough country is too rough. It does seem that the springs are sagging more than I expected. I have a heavy duty rear bumper with a swing away tire carrier and a 35 inch spare...thats alot of extra weight, but by my measurements i am only getting a hair more than 2 inches of lift in the rear and 2.75 inches in the front out of the 3.25 inch lift.

Am I just a casualty of the extra weight from bumper, rack, and spare tire, or would OME springs stand up better??

What do ya guys think...


I should add that my lift is technically 2.5 inch with their .75 inch coil spacer...thats where I get the 3.25 total

I have got the same rear bumper and tire carrier with a 35' spare like you and I had the same sag issues. When you think about it thats a lot of weight on the rear end. If you do get the OME coils get the 3" variety and I think you'll be sitting exactly where you want to be.

cool thing about OME springs is u can order different springs to compensate for the added weight of a HD bumper and larger tires.
