Old Man Emu.

OME at DPG off road.
Fast service

Too expensive to be honest. I'm not looking for a 200$ franken kit though. I had the "623N2 / 633N2 Rough Country" to be honest. Is there any problem with that?

Anticanman 10-28-2012 07:16 PM

Lots of problems with rough country. Just search the problems on their leaf springs.

GeoffQuante 10-28-2012 08:39 PM

Man, your right. The same thing wouldve happend with a franken kit tho. Anyone have any opnions on jsut throwing spacers in just to make sure shocks dont bottom out.

A Frankenstein kit is whatever you want it to be. It gives you the best opportunity to piece together the best of the best to ensure your xj will perform to the best of its ability.

At the same time being 17 and only working on snowmobiles my whole life i never got the training for this but im doing the best i can :/ i just don't know enough to comfortably piece together something like that. But im also not going to pay someone to take my XJ away and do it themselves, things are best learned when you just go in head first. I guess i'm just looking for ways to do this without having to play it by ear. And i mean all this in the nicest possible way, im a newbie when it comes to suspension. Hopefully ill catch on if i beat myself into it enough.

Look at all the pieces in the OME kit and buy them one by one so you don't have to save up so much money at once.

GeoffQuante 10-28-2012 09:25 PM

So you put them on one by one? or just wait till you can put the whole thing on. I mean my leaf springs (back) are sagging soo do i just buy here and there and put on when i can?
