Very nice. I gotta say, these black WK's look much better de-chromed.

Thanks! I wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go with it but once I installed the black rims i thought it would look best blacked out. Gotta say I am happy I went this route!

First part of the new lift came in today (isolators) EGR module should be here early next week and the Bilstein 5100's shocks and struts will be shipped out next week. Now the wait for the Superlift and I will be good to go!

The EGR module is to correct the Electronic stability/traction control correct? I thought they are for the superlift? Are you trying to use it on a hybrid lift of some sorts, or did you get a superlift?

I'm asking because if I can utilize this piece without the superlift, on my OME HD lift and 33's, then I'll be super happy. Then when I do get my superlift.. I will already have this great piece. How much did you pay for it if you don't mind my asking?

Yes the EGR is for the ESP issues affiliated with our Jeeps. I do have a Superlift on order but am making it into a 6" lift. I am not sure on using it with an OME lift, you would be the first person I know of to use it. I don't believe there is a reason for it though as I havnt heard any issues with ESP with an OME lift. IIRC the EGR module cost around $280.

I contacted AEV about the EGR module for more detail on exactly what it does because i was hoping to just use my flashpaq when i get the SL and save some money....

The superlift knuckles actually change the steering rate; ie rotation of steering wheel equates to a different change in steering angle due to the knuckles (the tie rod connection relative to the spindle axis is different). Our vehicles are very sensitive to this. I wouldn't use the EGR with anything but the superlift.

Thanks for the info! I always wondered how the lift affected our ESP systems. I never thought about this

Thanks for the clarification. I'd hate to find this out the hard way.... Now to muster up enough money and get a superlift to stack onto my OME HD lift...

Are you wanting to just make it a 4" lift or higher? If you go higher than you won't be able to use any parts from the OME lift expect for possibly the front coils.

Higher of course. I guess I wasn't aware that the Superlift rear coils were taller then the OME HD ones. I did know the shocks/struts are longer though.

Ya if you go higher to let's say 6" you can use a cut OME coil upfront to get a little more lift over 4". Look at Omelet's build thread as this is the route he went. I am going to be using Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts upfront to gain the additional 2" needed for a 6" lift and then I am going to use the rear spacer I have on top of the SL coil to get 6" in the rear. If you go to 6" I would opt for the longer shocks in the rear as you can get more travel out of the rear. When it does come time to order your lift speak with Kolak. He is full of wisdom (he suggested I get the longer rear shocks) and has the best prices.

Sounds like I'll be right behind you in the same install then. Haha, I'm lovin' the sound of it. Thanks for the info, and as always, I'll be ordering through Kolak when the time comes.

I'm going to use the 5100's too... except i'm also going to cut a OME MD coil because I like a stiffer spring. One coil cut off a MD is about the same spring rate as an uncut HD spring (just slightly less). Best of all worlds
