OME medium or heavy duty?

Going up a few inches in the '96 ZJ 4.0 and want 2-2.5 inches only. I have settled on the OME springs and talked to Nick from Kolak. He recommends the HD springs and they sound great. I am just curious if anyone has run the HD ones (934 and 943) AND the medium ones (930 and 940)?? What, if any, was the difference in everyday ride on pavement? Are the HD ones harsh or too stiff? Thanks...

I am running the HD Springs, they have a superior ride. Not to stiff at all.

Why is there a fish finder in your Jeep?

Not hard, if you have a socket wrench and the mental capacity of a ham sandwich.

Do you recall what you have in the rear? 940 or 943? Both of these fall under the term 'Heavy Duty' but the 943 has a constant rate..

When i worked for the fleet shop, and we were doing trucks with OME for the railroad PD, generally if it wsa a K9 unit (which has about 250 extra pounds in the rear) it got heavy/heavy
Otherwise, it got heavy/medium

Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

I have the heavys and they are fine. I can't tell you what the mediums feel like but I know most people go for the HD. Mine sits nice and level too.

I have no idea. I bought them from Kevin, and we talked in length about the need for heavy springs because of the weight I bring down to the desert. He talked me into the HD Springs and I could not be happier with them.
