Towing Setups
 
Hey guys, its been awhile. A couple months back I was looking at the OME 2" lift setup with the HD springs but never pulled the trigger because that setup is a little overkill for what I am using it for. I pull snowmobiles in the winter and a car in the summer and drive 80% highway miles. SO I want a something a little more heavy duty for when I tow but still a decent ride when Im not. Any one in the same boat? Any suggestions? Will Bilsteins do the trick or should I run heavier springs too?:confused:

I'm persuing the same course - I want to pull a 6000lb trailer on the road and get a comfortable ride driving rough (not off) roads - paved, or packed. I'm getting the Bilsteins all the way around, an Addco rear anti-swaybar and new bushings, and some Airlift rear spring bags. I decided not to get heavier springs 'cause I did that on my ZJ and it was just too bouncy when I didn't have any weight on the rear

Love the air bags! Had them on many vehicles over the years. Infinitely adjustable for loads and retain stock ride if you prefer that. I can put camping gear on the inside and crf450X on hitch mounted bike carrier, blow up the bags and it rides great. Also pull a 20ft enclosed trailer with the same setup, the bags make a huge difference...and they are cheap for the coil spring set up.
