EMU or Rubicon Express lift kit

What is the difference between these 2 kits besides the price.
EMU (ARB) 825.00
RE 380.00

This is just 4 springs, 4 shocks, track bar relocation bracket & bump stops. Is OME that good?

Thank You

I run the OME springs, I'd make sure you get the medium to heavy springs, especially if you are gonna haul anything....fantastic springs though.

That sounds like a lot of money for springs/shocks/bracket. Send me a PM if you'd like to chat about a lift - I've been an OME dealer for about 18 years now and will assist you in choosing the correct springs for your application, as well as the other goodies that are needed for your lift

Thank You

A lot of Jeep owners here in Australia thnk the OME stuff is a bit stiff, ride wise. Probably good if you run with a lot of weight all the time.
And yeah, we also think ARB is a bit stiff, price wise, too. lol

That difficult to do in a forum post because of vehicle-to-vehicle variance as well as a particular person's goals in terms of lift height as well as their budget. That's why a personal dialog is necessary.
