23 in the front is the danger number where **** can get real messed up. I'd suggest going 23 in rear and 22.5 in front

That's what the OME hd kit yields you in the front

My CRD is really off, 20 1/4" rear, 18 1/2 front?! Is that because of the weight of the engine? I only have 48,000 miles on it so the shocks should be okay right?

I think my front sat about that when it was stock, but the rear seems pretty high for stock suspension.

That's about right. The CRD and Hemi will sit lower than the smaller engines. Mine was about 19 front and 20 rear when stock.

What Nathan Said.

Stock height is 20". My CRD was at 19.5" and 20" with a 12 month old OME setup. Weight will do that!

Mine did, but mine is a very heavy Jeep. WHen i had the OME, i had the XL Rola Vortex rack, ARB bar and winch with steel cable, dual batteries in the front, full roller drawers in the rear with air compressor, air tank, 2 more batteries, tools, recovery gear etc. It didnt hold up long under wheeling conditions.

I went to a Murchison Products lift after that, 22.5 front and 23" rear, and it never dropped until i fitted a rear tyre carrier and bumper from Jackie Davis.

Then with the combined kit and SL bits 26.5 front and 27" rear.

Comp spec i run at 24.5 and 25" with the 33's.

Any NEW spring is going to "settle" a little. That's normal

After 1 year with the OME HD here are my settings...this is with a 1/2 tank of diesel and about 100 pounds of stuff in the back. Might be time to get some poly spacers for the rear.

Front 21 3/4

Rear 21 1/2

I have a daystar with a 4.7L v8. I have 20.75 and 21 in the rear. So I think you'll get more with an OME for sure
