Pros Lifted higher than advertised. Ride is firm but still comfortable.
Cons None discovered so far.
Recommended yes

Comments: This product (I installed the Heavy Duty spring rate) came with 4 nitro-charged shocks and 4 springs. The kit installed very easily and actually provided a 3.5" lift. Ride quality is firm but sure-footed and provided plenty of clearance to make way for the 35" tires that followed. No rubbing issues whatsoever, however I have not had the Jeep at full flex since install.

Pros Once I had them installed I found the ride was softer then most other lift kits. This lift kit was made to fit specific years of Jeep Cherokee. I like the look of the ride now, its taller and allows for a better response.
Cons Unfortunately the warranty on the shocks is ONLY for 2 years. I found the overall cost of the system very expensive and not always winter friendly. The first year that I had the system installed the rubber in the suspension squeaked loudly and just annoyed the hell out of me!!
Recommended no

Comments: Overall I feel that for the money the lift kit is really not worth it. The cost of having it installed and the time lost doesn't justify the benefit of having it in my jeep. :brickwall:brickwall:brickwall:brickwall

Pros Good ride (light duty), quality system, lives up to its reputation, flexes well
Cons Light duty not quite 2", less when skid plates are added
Recommended yes

Comments: Not realizing there were multiple versions of the kit available, the shop I worked with ordered the light duty kit. For a stock Jeep it's ideal, but I have many skids and need some additional stiffness. Suspension rides as good as new Jeep did. Quality system.

Pros Fantastic articulation and great ride both on and off road
Cons no upper or lower control arms come with the kit. Rather expensive for what you get, but it is very well made.
Recommended yes

Comments: I purchased the OME ZJ/LJ springs with OME shocks. The kit is very well made and installation is fairly easy. For best results, I recommend using a JKS adjustable trac bar and JKS quick disconnects.

I also recommend using sway bar collars to prevent the sway bar from shifting from side to side, which appears to be a common issue with lifted TJ's

Pros nice complete kit
Cons expected more down ward travel
Recommended yes

Comments: I got the medium duty springs. I was expecting them to be a little bit stiffer but I think it will keep the wife happy for now. It raised the front 2.5 in in the front and 2 in in the back. I measured the down ward travel in the front and it was only 1 inch more than stock. I was expecting 2 inches. There is plenty of threads left on the shock but you need to tighten all the way or you will get clunking in the front.

Pros Improved stability, firm suspension.
Cons Expensive
Recommended yes

Comments: OME say 2" lift, when i measured it, it was 3-3½".
The original WK suspension is way too soft for me, with the OME lift it completely changed my Jeep. Now its firm and a joy to drive.

Pros durable, full kit, easy install
Cons none really
Recommended yes

Comments: Excellent lift kit - gives the WK nice bold stance, got about 3.5 in front 2.5 rear.. gives about 1'' additional articulation. The cream of the crop for WK folks, my only regret is ill have about 150 lbs of skids and gear bolted to this thing, should have gone with the HD. But it rides amazing and it preforms above expectation offroad. An excellent product.

Pros Nice lift looks great.
Cons Could be more comfortable and handle the bumps better.
Recommended yes

Comments: Not as comfortable and durable as I was expecting. It's still a pretty rough ride. I was not impressed with the fact that my new coils were chipped up in the box either.

Pros NICE ride for everyday! Makes the Jeep better off-road too, of course.
Cons None I've encountered yet.
Recommended yes

Comments: Tried another brand but it was too stiff, about bounced off a road just because of washboard surface. We don't intentionally go rock crawling so don't need a big lift. The OME lift fits our needs and stretches our off-road limits but can still be driven everyday in town. In town driving is every bit as good as the OEM suspension. Looks good, too!

Pros made in USA, smooth ride, looks good
Cons a few issues installing the coil springs (bump stops in the way, springs are really hard to compress so they fit)
Recommended yes

Comments: A great kit, gave me the lift i needed for my 31" tires, plus a smooth ride, and it loos pretty nice as well. Shocks are sturdy and well built, the kit is a little pricy though. Purchased from Quadratec, Made in USA. Only issues we had while installig it were that we had to lift the jeep up pretty high with the jack and jack stands so the axles would drop low enough for the coil springs; we had to use some clamps to compress the springs so they would go on. Not a major issue though, everything else went on easily in about an hour. All in all, Great quality, looks, and a nice ride for the price.

Pros Far more substantial than the stock components
Cons None so far.
Recommended yes

Comments: This is a great product. Fairly easy to install, however it doesn't come with install instructions. You can easily find a set of XK instructions on this site. Get a good pair of spring compressors… air tools seriously helped with this.

Pros Very easy to install..improved the ride significantly
Cons Needed rear shock relocation brackets for a proper fit...wasn't a big deal but wish I had known in advance.
Recommended yes

Comments: Very good suspension..definitely get some rubicon rear shock relocation brackets to keep the rear shocks from rubbing or knocking or rear axel

Pros Good quality
Cons HD springs very stiff
Recommended yes

Comments: While the components appear to be high quality; the HD springs are far too stiff, and the shock valving is too heavy. This should be called a "CJ Kit" because that's how it made my TJ ride.
