OME vs My Setup
 
Just need your thoughts ... time to upgrade suspension due to me being worried about high milage jeep after a few posts form members of the this forum.

I was thinking about the OME suspension setup because it comes with all new shocks/struts/coils... $800 for proven system and a great ride

or I was looking at going with the bilstien shocks and struts with a rough country 2" spacer system. Looking at about $450-500 for this setup. Should net about 2 3/8" lift.

With the second setup I could then have some extra money for the SRT sway bars or possibly JBA A-arms... what do you guys think would be the better setup?

Depends if you want more lift or not. The OME will get you 3" or even a bit more, but i'd bet that it won't ride quite as nice as the Bilsteins. But i'm jaded....lol

I just ordered the OME set up Monday. It should be here in 3-4 weeks. I'm really excited for it because all I've had is the crappy stock ride. I'll let you know the differences between stock and OME after I get it on.

When are new a-arms recommended? Would I even need them with bilstiens and the RC 2" lift?

You can ride on a 2" lift for a long time with the JBA UCA's. But there are stories of balljoint failure due to lack of UCA travel.

I'm going to get the OME lift and get the JBA UCA's later.

I ordered the whole lift from JBA, at one time got free shipping and $100 off the upper A arms

Hahaha. Sorry, I would go with the OME set up because it is proven and I personally like a higher lift. It all depends on how much higher you actually want the ride to be. If you want a little bit of a lift go with the spacers, if not go with OME.
