RR spacers and OME springs

New Guy here with a question. Has anyone tried the RR lift with OME springs? I want the benefit of the heavy duty springs, and an extra Inch or two of lift would be nice also. Does anyone think there could be a problem with doing this?

ome springs give you the lift. You would not need the rr lift

I am running the RR spacers up front and the OME springs only in the rear. As long as you get the OME HD springs you will get about the same lift as the RR spacers. The ride quality is slightly rougher with the OME HD springs than the stock springs but you can not really notice the difference. The OME Medium Duty springs will give you about 1.5" lift I think.

He said he would like an extra inch or two of lift on top of the rr lift.

Well I guess I should answer your original question. Yes you physically could install the OME springs along with the Rocky Road spacers to gain a few more inches of lift. However if you read this thread it will explain to you why doing this would not be a good idea.

I read that thread. Thanks! a lot of info there. I may use the OME springs and cut a little off, or I will have to change UCA's Sway bar extensions, and bake line extention. Well I will have to think it over. Will let you know what I do.

Honestly if you got the HD UCA's from Get Lost 4x4 and cut one coil off of the OME springs you should be fine. Id still recommend getting the brake line extention from superlift, adjustable front sway bar end links, and the OME struts. For the rear you would need OME Springs, brake line extentions, longer shocks, adjustable track bar and id recommend the BDS rear upper and lower adjustable control arms to center the axle and adjust the pinion angle.

I almost went this route with my Commander but later on decided not to. I made a parts list of everything I needed to do it and found out it would be cheaper just to buy the 4 inch superlift.
