OME spring?'s

Looking to order my springs, just had a quick ? A lot of folks are saying to go with the 36R all the way around, was just curious why? Is it because these will give you the most lift? the ride quality? I'm going to go with my gut and go with the majorities advice, but thought I'd ask what the advantages are.

Hey Jon. Just replied to ur PM.

A lot of guys run them on all 4 corners, say they are heavier duty. I've got the 036 on the back and the 014 up front and have no complaints. That's what ARB recommended to me before I purchased.

I sent you the number for Iron Pig, but you can also check with ARB tech line, they supply OME in the US. 425 264 1391.

Take care. Bob

I had the same set up but the front sagged pretty quickly so I swapped in a set of 36.

If you have any kind of heavy bumper and especially a winch you need the heavy springs in front.

Well as of now I have no heavy bumper or winch. Deffinatley will in the future, but if I go 36 up front without the added weight is it gonna be a super stiff ride untill I get heavy up front?

I've been told it will ride and flex fine without heavy stuff. Because when I get my springs I probably won't have anything heavy either.

Will not be a stiff ride. Make sure you put on some nice flexy greaseable shackles at the same time.

I have had my springs on for about 3 1/2 years now and with a pretty heavy rear bumper and tire swing with a 35 on it the back springs have pretty much sagged flat. I put in an add a leaf as a temporary fix and even that did not really make the ride any stiffer or affect the flex. Can't say enough good things about OME springs.

I have 36r on front with a light (30lb?) bumper and stiff is the last word you could ever use to begin to describe the ride.

I did try calling ARB and got some old lady. Haha, after that I just decided to go ahead and order the 36R's all the way around. Also got my SYE kit and driveshaft ordered from Tom Woods, and my boomerang shackles ordered from crabtree tool & die. I'm psyched, broke, but psyched.

Another question off-topic from springs. I will be keeping the sway bar, so I'm looking for some quick discos. I was looking at the JKS quicker disconnects. Anyone using these? Is it a huge advantage to be able to remove the whole link, or is it pretty minimal? How much of a PIA is it to put conventional quick discos back together on an uneven ground?

Got my springs, SYE kit and D/S from tom woods today. Just waiting on my shackles. Quick question, the + on the spring goes towards the front, right? Also how do I remove the shim on the springs that will be up front? Do I need to take the nut off the pin and pull it? Or will the shim pop over the pin? I'm using 36R springs in the front?
