I have those on my Jeep, with a half inch shackle lift. They ride about like stock, probably a little stiffer, and have not sagged in the 2 years I have had them.

This may be because I got the heavy duty springs and only have a 4 banger and soft top with no armor, and don't do any hard core wheeling. I have put about 10,000 miles on them, and they will flex enough to rub the rear flares with 33's and 4 inches of lift, with sways and track bars attached.

I have no complaints. One of the super lift shocks I got was missing the hardwear packet, but Quadratec sent me a new packet no questions asked.

I don't think mine are military wrapped though, this is the kit I have. http://www.quadratec.com/products/16207_015.htm

I run superlift 3.5 hd rear springs on the front of mine SOA and mixed with waggy springs in the back. They ride great and don't sag, I dont really have a bad thing to say about them. They keep their arch but flex very easily. With that said, the OME springs r high quality as well. Can't go wrong either way in my opninion man.

Great to know, helps me decide on 33s over 35s. Also now I'm curious with the whole military wrap thing. Ones you have and ones on quadratec don't have full wrap.

Wonder what springs I ended up getting then...

Call me crazy but with my BDS miltary wrap springs the two long springs (one being the mil wrap) are not seperated by an anti friction pad so they creak AND rust due to the constant rubbing... So unless you are going wheeling I would steer clear of the mil wrap.

No big deal my current leafs with partial wrap rub and rust, quick spray with rustoleum takes care of it. I do go wheeling a lot, rocks and unforgiving socal terrain, that is why it's important to have mil wrap

looks like Jeff has been having some serious sagging with OME, flat as a pancake
