I6 OME lift

hi!
what lift did you net with OME springs, or OME HD springs (hub to fender)?
front - ome 934
rear - OME 943

and what is your setup(heavy bumpers, winch, roof basket, etc?)?

does anyone runs OME 939 spring in front?

as i have read it is about 20'' front and rear. so if i ad 1 inch spacer it is 21", but how much does it setle when loaded?

my plan is built some ome lift for about 3 inch with some homemade spacers from poly.

i am running 98 I6 with 245/75/16 hankook dynapro - and 18" hub fender.

I wouldn't do homemade spacers. OME shocks would work at 3" but would be top end and wouldn't work well for flex offroad. If you want 3" get a 3.5" lift kit and go from there. You can piece one together if you want, all you need is springs, front and rear track bars are highly suggested, front and rear sway bar links.

Don't due the 3" fat bob's 3" BB kit.

New or used OME? If you are going to spend that kind of money, and want a 3" lift look into IRO's lift kit. Talk to Kolak either way, he is a vendor for both. OME HD's kit with new springs should net you ~2.5" of lift.

with an I6 and no roof rack or bumpers or other heavy additions, I netted 2.5 in front and 2.0 rear with the OME HDs.
