PICS: just got taller... OME HD, (and now) .75" spacers on all four corners

Added .75" RE coil spring spacers in the rear to match the ones I've got up front. While I was at it I swapped my rear OME HD springs from side to side because the taller spring was on the driver side even though it was marked "A". Looks like she sits nice and level now. Enjoy:

I like 'em a lot... I'm using my stock rims so I'm running Spidertrax 1.25" wheel spacers in order to run the 32x11.50's. BFG AT's perform very very well offroad and perform admirably in the snow as well. I've been getting good tread life out of mine.

I have those same tires on my jeep, however whenever I turn sharply they rub against the finder wells. Did you have that problem before you installed the spacers? If so, did it fix it?

BTW it looks awsome!

That jeep looks sweet. Was it supose to be level with 3/4 spacers upfront before you added the back spacers.

I'm looking at putting the OME suspension on my 05 sport in a month or so. I'm going to be going with BFG AT's in 32x11.5x15 also. Do you really need the wheel spacers? Thanks

Yeah, if you don't run the spacers with stock rims and 32x11.50's you will rub the front lower control arms when you turn. Try a search for jdlawhon... he's running 32x11.50's without wheel spacers. He achieved this by trimming his spring perches and adjusting his steering stops.
