OME Lift Question..

I have been searching the fourms, and can't find this answer. I found someone that had the same question, but it was never figured out...


I have a 2002 WJ with a 1.5" HD Full (Shocks and Springs) OME lift kit. Am I able to add a 2" BB spacer kit to that, and get 3.5" without all kinds of more money thrown at it?

I like my WJ how it is, but after a bit I get bored, and want it HIGHER!!!

I have the OME HD springs with 3/4 inch spacers and needed longer travel Pro comp MX6 shocks than what is required for stock suspension so you'll probably need shocks. The measured lift from hub to fender is 3 inches (18.5 stock to 21.5 lifted) with this lift and it leveled out the front to back which is nice.

Unless your springs have settled a lot, you'll be at about 4-5 inches of lift over stock with 2 inch spacers. You should just get 4 inch springs all around with new shocks.

If you throw the BB in there, at minimum should get a front adj. track bar, appropriate length shocks, either appropriate length front end links or quick disconnects, and rear sway bar links that are the correct length if you want a rear sway bar.

You have to more than shocks and springs at 4". The minimum you should keep the stock front track bar is 2.5". 3" is pushing the limits of it and one should be bought and also the end links will not be at the best angle.

Thanks. Seems like it's not really worth doing then. I don't NEED it, and I've already sspent over $600 on my current setup. I don't see any logical way of doing it other than just a full new kit, and in that case I might as well go even higher.

I just want a little more though... so sad...
