Background: Last summer I put 2" spacers in the front (kept original stock springs). I have a JCR DIY bumper up there so there is added weight.
I replaced the rear springs with 2" CS035RA OME Heavy load springs in the back. True to what I've read here they are more like 2.5" to 3" and my XJ has a nose down lean to it. I'll be adding a JCR bumper with tire carrier to the rear so that should bring it down some and the main reason I went with the "heavies"
Over the past 10-11 months the front end has gotten soft, seems to bottom out pretty easy, lots of rattling and some death wobble. Time to rebuild, so I'm replacing all the tierod ends, ball joints, stabilizer, track bar, other bushings, shocks. I'd also like to get rid of the old springs.
Only 2" springs I've found are Rusty's. I've read about quality issues with their stuff. Then there is OME and mixed info on their 903 springs some say 2" other say less.
So I'm thinking of going with the OME 903's but wondering if I'll need a spacer depending on the way it levels out.
Anyone done this? Open to other suggestions and advice as well.
I run OME 935 springs, made for a V-8 ZJ and got 2" of lift, with a winch bumper. With Bilstein 5150s, the ride is smooth.
2" more lift were added, with a set of JKS ACOS, to achieve the final 4" lift.
