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...

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