New suspension?

I found a set of Old Man Emu coil springs, all 4, for $75 on this forum. i have wanted new suspension and a lift so i also found a 2 inch spacer lift for $200 with Pro Comp shocks. Is getting all of this a good idea? The springs have 15,000 miles on them.

Those are great coils. New they are over 300 bucks for 4. I would buy a BB separately and get a good set of shocks instead of the pro-crap.

If they are the HD OME springs, they will net you 2" of lift by themselves.

i do a fair amount of offroading and mudding, so would the bb be better to buy first or the coils?

Things you need are, longer shocks, bump stops, sway bar links if over 3"


Depends on your price range, shocks are known are iron rock, bilstein( quite expensive on the downside but best shocks) rubicon express, ome shocks.

Etc.

For 3" you'll need longer shocks, bumpstops and sway bar links. On some Jeeps you will need to fix the front trackbar location as well.

Email Nick @ www.kolak@aol.com. He is a vendor and sells all of that stuff at good prices. Email him about what you want to do and he'll get with you on a parts list and prices.
