I believe so. Most people run the OME springs due to other people reviews. Rusty's seems to be up in the air a lot. I havnt heard much about the springs but I've always heard that their shocks sucked. Most people have been afraid to venture outside of OME since we all know they are good quality.

I almost pulled the trigger on their springs but ended up going with OME because I know more about it. I did however get some Rustys rear shocks. They're not installed, I'm waiting to create a 3-3.5" OME lift and just need a few more parts

id be curious to see what the difference in spring rate is between the two- doesnt rustys offer a HD version of their springs? also did i read somewhere you threw WJ front springs in the rear of your WK? hows that working out?

im just curious as to how they are and have been doing for you- i have hemi XK coils for the front with a set of bilstein 5100s, but for the rer im torn between a rustys rear and an OME rear.

i contacted rustys and their rear spring has a spring rate of 240lbs... OME MD has a spring rate of 240, the HDs are 280lbs.

Mainly because the people who have ran them end up being dissapointed in the long run with sagging issues. Majority of people run OME just for the fact that everyone else does and they know it works. I havnt personally used either I'm just voicing what I have heard throughout the forum since I've joined. Not only in the WK section but it many other sections also were people have ran Rusty's equipment. I'm glad we do have people like you though who are brave enough to venture outside of most peoples comfort zone to try a product not many of us try.

i like that rustys has an option for the rear springs- im just torn on the spring rate, especially if i intend to run a detour tire carrier on the rear in my hitch. will a 240lb spring rate be enough? like i said decisions decisions.

how many miles do you have on your rustys springs? any problems? post pics when you can.

The Rusty's spring rate is the same as the OME MD springs.
