OME MD Front & HD Rear???
 
So I have the OME MD Lift on my 3.7 WK. My engine is light and the OME MD lift jacked the front up pretty high. The weight of all WKs in the rear is the same I think.

I was just wondering would it be ok to buy a set of OME HD coils/springs for just the rear?

I will be selling the rear MD coils I all ready have with less than 1000 miles on them.

buy a trim spacer from OME for the rear.. should level her back out.

Their trim spacers are only 10mm. That's not even half an inch. 0.39 inches. Do you think HD rear coils will give it a boost? I would even do a 0.5 inch spacer or something close to 1 inch. Hmmmmm......

Help me out here. Lol.

Here is the picture. The rear is about an inch lower than the front but I know that's because the front wheel wells are cut bigger than the rear.

I just want to rear about an inch or maybe half an inch higher. What do you all think?

looks level though...

It is leveled. An I actually took more measurements today. I just wanted the rear to sit a little higher.

This is what I think will happen; I'm going to drive around and just forget about it and leave it like it is eventually. Yep....I thinks that's what's going to happen.

The front fender well always bothers me on side views too because of the cut making it look like its higher in front... even though we all know its level. It looks a bit odd, but I still like it. I wonder if the OME lift can be done with the rear part of a BB spacer lift to keep the factory angle that so many people hate. (I like it though)

looks level to me, the front is a little higher as you can probably tell, looks just like mine :)

Thanks for all your suggestions. I'm going to have the rear coils swapped because "A" coil is on the passenger side. Totally forgot about it.

hella, I like your WK. Keep it clean/sleek/stealthy/simple. That's what I like to do. But I'm not dipping my wheels though. I only like to stretch the stock look.

Micallef, I've been wanting to do those PIAA's down there in the stock location every since I saw yours which was before I was a member of any forum. I will be modding mine to the stock OEM fog light wire harness to work with the OEM multi-function switch. It's the next mod on my list which will be completed soon after taxes on tags, bills, bills, and more bills.
