You might not notice right now, but the major issue with a spacer is that it compresses the already weak springs and severely cuts the lifespan of the stock springs.
That's exactly what I did with my tax return last year. Old Man Emu lift.

here is a list to stay away from
Skyjacker
Rustys Off Road
two above both have spring rates the same as stock, and will sag quickly
Rocky Road Outfitters just say no to them
OME or Ironman are both good companies with good springs and shocks
Jeepinbyal has the best service over all

x2. This exact post is tattood on Tom's chest.
Most KK owners have the OME lift (good bang for the buck) and 50 percent have the OME shocks, and the other 50 percent have Bilstein shocks.

I will put in my two cents and back Rocky Road Outfitters (for an in-general opinion with what I know and have experienced. Maybe it is different for other customers). I have a couple of their items and with another in production as I type this. For me, and others I know, they do top notch work and fantastic customer service. I am not sure on their OME prices compared to others since I do not price out KKs.

Interesting indeed. Sucks to find that out. Happens with all companies, though.

Some great pics guys! I firmly believe the humble KK is such an underrated 4WD so I love seeing users proving people wrong with its capabilities!

Here's a selection of pics covering the last 2 years of wheeling I've done with my KK since I've owned it. Interesting to see her change over time.

Looking forwards to seeing more pics! (Hope I didn't post too many )









Whoops... blew a Tyre off the bead. Thankfully we managed to reset it fairly easily.
