Think its time for a new suspension?

Starting to hear what I think is the shocks and struts to bottom out. Getting a little more bounce to my WK as well. Wanting a 2+" lift and new shocks and struts. Any ideas? Looking at maybe the 2.25 RR or the full OME HD lift then moving to 265's? Please help a newbie out.

From Newbie to Newbie, I'm in the same boat. Check out this thread. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/w...hread-1246013/ I worked thru a ton of options before deciding what I wanted to do. I've decided not to go with the OME HD, but the MD. Stock is way to mushy, but I don't want it too firm. The OME MD from what others have said is right in between the two, same lift as the HD. And with it, 265's fit fine. There are cheaper ways to get the lift, but if you're like me and need the springs too, it just makes sense to get the whole package. Reach out to "Kolak", I like to support members of the forum, as they have already helped me out a ton. Good luck

I'll second the plug for Kolak. As a noob here myself, I followed the recommendations of some of the more senior members and bought my OME lift from him. Great service, great knowledge, great price. Plus it's nice to support our own

Prior: 2005 Limited - SOLD. Now: 2010 Limited, Hemi, bone stock...for now!

I carry the OME and daystar bb. The OME is the preferred lift, but I have a bb and I'm happy with it for now it complements a 265 nicely

Will a 33x10.50x15 from a 2005 Wrangler fit on my WK with a OME HD?

a 15" wheel will not clear the brake caliper
