Excellent product, I definately would recommend. Ride quality is greatly improved over 2" BB.

Old Man Emu (OME) 2.5" HD Lift Springs

very good product except the difference in spring height. I understand why they do this but disagree with the concept.

Old Man Emu (OME) 2.5" HD Lift Springs

Bought 4 OME HD (936 and 945) coil springs to level out 2002 WJ and lift. I also added 3/4 inch spring spacers for a total of 3" lift.

Hub to fender measurement went from 18 inches to 21 inches.

The HD versions of the springs are stiffer than stock WJ springs but give the WJ a real nice stance and allow you to run 31 inch tires with no problems.

No need for adjustable control arms, adjustable track bar, drive shaft work, etc. with 3 inch lift. Total cost of the lift was about $650.00 (OME HD springs, Pro-Comp MX6 shocks, 3/4" spacers).

Great ride better then factory. Off road performance much better then factory. Worth the cost.

These springs are designed for a flexy ride which I liked. The "HD" in the description is misleading. I was not told they are not recommended for use with SOA so I'm replacing them with the HD rears up front.

High quality springs, but install directions leave something to be desired...

Best springs ever. I might rather have 4", but the feel of the OME Springs is great. Definitely better than stock.

A little bouncy in the rear, but that may be fixed with extended end links in the back

I love my HD OME leaf springs.

They are well finished with some kind of phosphate/Parkerizing, not just glommed up with paint like the OEM replacement springs.

They started out as 3+" lift, but settled down to EXACTLY 2" of lift in a month or so of driving.

The OME heavy duty leaf springs are a great way to go if you're doing a 2 inch lift.

I have never had a suspension lifted vehicle before, so I can't really compare to much. But the OME's are very well built with a great fit and finish that I don't see in the OEM HD replacement springs I bought but never installed.

The OME springs only took 1 month to settle from 3" of lift to the advertised 2" -- the body is now EXACTLY 2" higher than its published stock height. Same with the front OME coil springs I installed.

The front coil springs are great because the driver's side spring is a bit taller than the passenger side. The stock coil springs I removed were the same height. The OME coil springs level the vehicle laterally -- it used to slump a bit to the driver's side when it had the stock springs.

These springs are nice as long as you have a little weight on them. Without my hardtop I like to keep the jerry cans on my rear bumper full so my jeep will ride better.
