OME Springs

So I want to lift my ZJ soon and I hear people talking about their "bilsteins and OME springs"

I tried to do some research on my own..but your telling me that "original manufacturer equipment" will give you about a 2.5" lift? Excuse me if I'm wrong or in this case OME stands for something else...also I have the I6 Laredo...are these guys talking about springs from the Limited's? Or is it the idea that fresh springs have more life in them and aren't broken in yet so they're more rigid? I am confused as sh*t, someone guide me!

OME= Old Man Emu (made by ARB)
OEM= original equipment manufacturer

Also they come in different spring rates, Medium duty & heavy duty. I believe I6 should use MD.

Should be closer to 1.5" in the rear, but it would be leveled this way. To keep the rake, he could use the HD in the rear as well.

HD nets right at 2.5" all around. I have them on my 5.9 and it's an awesome setup, especially with the Bilsteins. PM me if you'd like more information & pricing.
