OME lift is on.... review and questions

It was pretty easy to install and the product quality seems top notch. It is EASILY a 3" lift right after it went on though it is rated at about 2". On bumpy surfaces that are spread out a bit, they ride as smooth as glass. On really short bumps, they are very bouncy. Has anyone ever experienced bouncy with their OME? I know they will settle some. I took them offroad to flex them a bit, but I didn't have discos on so I don't know how much flex they really got. The seem bouncier in the rear.. I have the J1F and J1R springs as well as the N33 and N34 shocks.

I've had mine on my YJ for about 8 years and it is still performing well on and off road. The only bouncy issues I've has is over washboard type roads but I attribute that as much to the inherant design of short wheelbase / live axle/ leaf springs. Wait 'til you flex it off road especially without swaybar/track bars. Enjoy your "new" YJ!

OME makes some killer stuff. Did you have to do a T-case drop, pitman arm, and all that good stuff? Any vibrations in the driveline?

No new vibrations in the driveline that weren't already there... I haven't had to do a t-case shim or drop as it was only a couple of inches and the guys at OME said I probably would not have to...

I'll give it a little time and see where it settles in...
