So the OME lift is a true 3 and 3? Or only with the 886 heavy's?I'm thinking of pulling the trigger on the Icons for the front. I already installed the OME Heavies (886's), which are good and a true 3 inch but they are way too heavy. Need the mediums at least, but if I do it again, I might as well get the good stuff. So, I might have a complete OME HD setup for sale soon.
With that said, how long have you had the OMEs and how do you like them?This is a great question.
I am in the heat of this right now...Woodsman has been a great resource, thanks James.
There is a guy (Kirk) at the 4wheel parts store on Federal in Arvada Colorado. Pretty knowledgeable, worked for a long time at 4wheel parts and did a stint at Toytec. Kirk said something that I thought was interesting to me today, he said OME's will provide at a minimum 2.5, meaning what exactly?
I had the Pro-Comp 3" lift, cheap and plush..Loved it but alas it settled a ton over the last 6 months of it's 2 plus year life cycle. For what is cost and how much I wheeled on it, I am more then satisfied with the performance.
So I just picked up a set of Icon coilovers. Not sure what to do about replacing the rear, I finally decided to go with the OME mediums and OME shocks.
Sounds like anything softer then the medium stiffness will eventually sag?
Haven't installed the new lift yet, doing that tomorrow.
I went with OME 895s and 80 series OME shocks for the rear..Sounds like the 80 series OMEs are rated better for all the rear weight. We will see.
Check out what I just realized with my Pro Comps...Must have happened on my Maze Utah trip and only just now noticed..I know embarrasing that I just realized, oh well...
