i think i have found the suspension kit for my jeep

i finally found someone that sells the OME for the WK. i think this will work on the commander

http://www.central4wd.com/inventoryd...age=id%7C52451

here's the parts numbers from ARB-USA

http://www.arbusa.com/USA-Vehicle-Ap...herokee-WK.pdf

i'm planning on getting this, this summer for my commander. its about $800. but you get all new springs and shocks. this is a 2 inch lift. there are 2 types of springs. heavy duty and medium duty.

i'm going to go with heavy duty because of the winch i plan on putting up front and sometimes i'll tow with the commander!

Heavy Duty will be a bit rougher ride but will work better with the winch and heavy loads.

It is pricier than some of the econo lifts but like you said, it is done right with all new springs, struts, and shocks.

OME are some of the highest quality suspension kits out there.

i'm just not a fan of spacers for suspension.

i've been hoping to find a mild lift that will work with my needs. this seems to be what i'm looking for.

is anyone else running this lift kit?

I don't think so. I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago, and as far as I know was the first one to post anything about it.

I am running a similar kit from OME on my Cherokee (of course rear springs are leaf on the XJ). It is the Medium Duty kit. It is hands down a great kit and improved ride quality and cornering even though the vehicle sits 3.5+" higher than before.
