May I suggest taking out the lame leaf springs, and putting in coilovers. The price has come down considerably, and you will get some Major flex.

Jeep is staying as is, considering that I still owe my parents a grand on the jeep.... Once its payed of, It time to re-do the whole lift... most likely spring time....

So um, The "Old man Emu" leafs are saging,
After so many positive , no glowing posts on OME shocks, I've gotta ask how old the OME springs are? How many miles? How much torture have they endured?

Their are about 6,000 miles on them, they are one year old i do believe, Lets just say the guy i bought it off wasnt to good of a driver off the road... The front tires are rubbing, you can see the jeep is angeled foward... So yeah, but I found a really good off-road shop about 25 mins away from my house... I will most likely be going to them after the holidays and gettin this taken care of...... I will also have them throw on my rock guards/side steps:D

OK, had to check. I have the standard duty RE 2-1/2" lift. I've got about 8,000 on it. Totally unhappy with the shocks. The doetsh junk shocks that come with the RE kit are the pits. First long distance trip not even any serious wheeling and I blew out a rear shock. The rig sways to and fro going around corners. Should have held out for at least the heavy duty kit.

I asked about shocks on the forum and the reports kept coming back recommending the OME shocks.
