Yeah, I've thought about clocking them. I really hate hearing that noise and knowing what is causing it. Although, I also don't think I would like knowing that my shocks were topping out with the force that the OME HD springs have...

Full extension does not hurt shocks,it's that forcefull full compression that kills them.

I was told the JBA springs have a smaller coil diameter and that OME springs are close to stock diameter.
