Will '06 Rubicon OME Shocks work on a '97 TJ?

Hi Everyone,
I just purchased some stock OME shocks from an '06 Rubicon. Will these fit/work with my '97 TJ Sport?

I put stock Rubi shocks on my 98TJ and gained about an inch in lift over the worn out stock ones. They will work fine.

Read post wrong, I gained the height with the coil springs, but springs and shocks worked great.

OME stands for Old Man Emu. It's a brand owned by ARB USA, and they sell shocks.

Stock Rubicon shocks are not made by OME. Stock Rubicon shocks will fit your Jeep.

I assume he meant OEM (Original Equipment Manufactuer) i.e. stock

Shocks do not lift

FYI, they will work with your TJ. However, they won't provide any lift, or any other advantage over other OEM shocks.

No worry there, I'm not looking for lift. My shocks are simply shot, so I need to replace. Out of curiosity (and I know this is tough to diagnose), do you think I should replace my coils? I just bought a 97 TJ Sport, 130,000 miles on the original springs. It doesn't look like it's sagging, which either means it is fine, or they are all sagging equally.

I wouldn't bother. It's likely that they're all sagging a little bit, but that's not really an issue unless it bothers you. I'm sure many Jeepers who don't modify anything, just replace OEM parts, go 200K+ miles on the factory coils.
