lift question

Just bought my JKU yesterday and now looking into the Old Man Emu lift kit Heavy duty 2.5". My question is should I get Nitrocharger or Nitrocharger Sport shocks. What are the pros and cons of each? I do mostly street with occasional mild offroad.

I have that lift and used the Nitrocharger shocks, they are great on and off road, but only lasted 5 years of my kind of off roading. I netted about 3.2 inches of lift with my bumper and winch and I did use the leveling pucks in the front end. Great lift IMO, but I also added bump stops, adj front lower and rear upper CAs and adj track bars front and rear...drives like a champ on 35s.

What shocks do you like better OME or Fox? Do I need the Trackbar bracket as well? When you say leveling pucks do you mean the 10mm spacers that are provided by OME. Did you have the HD Front Springs?
