Ditching RC, want to order OME 36R
Hello all. Going to ditch my RC 4" springs and get some OME 36R springs for all four corners. My 4"RC springs really only ever gave me 3 1/2" of lift anyway, so I don't think I'll miss the half inch of clearance for a better ride.
I'd like to swap the springs in one afternoon without having to wait for other parts, so I have a few questions.
I have 5/8" MORE shackles with greasable bushings. They are fine for OME springs, correct?
Do I HAVE to buy new bushings, or can I get away with using the old ones?
(I know some of you might say just get new bushings anyway, but I'm remodeling my home so I'd like to keep my budget right around $425 just for the springs, know what I mean? The current bushings have only been on my Jeep for almost three years and have seen less than 10K miles. Plus I'm not reselling my old RC springs.... giving them to a buddy who needs a junk set for his rig.)
Second question is that I have the RC 4" lift gas shocks on the Jeep. Pretty sure I don't even need to ask, but just checking.... they will be fine to leave on, correct?
Thanks in advance.
94 YJ w/ stuff. All the work/money I put into it, and the comment I get most is my $20 mod: "Hand throttle?!? That's awesome."
You know you drive a YJ when it is no longer getting older, but slowly becoming brand new part by part.
