Now I want to buy new front and rear shocks to be go with the current Old Man Emu 2" coils which I have already installed three months back.

The shocks must be longer than stock to compensate for the 2" gained by the coils and gain more wheel travel.

OME shocks and struts are my only option in mined, Do you suggest/recommend any other type that can be better or same with less price?

Thanks, :)

Definately go with the Old Man Emu struts/shocks. In my opinion, they are the best on the market especially since you already have the springs. They are nitrogen charged which is what makes them stand out above the rest.

I like Bilstien and sell a lot of those shocks.

I have the 5150's on the back and love them. they are great shocks.
Are they longer than stock? how much longer? and how much they cost?

What about the front struts?

the front shocks are about 1/2" longer then stock. $119.00 each



the rear shocks are 10" travel which works perfect with a 2" lift. $109.00 each

Are the front OME shocks longer than the stock with 1/2" or more?

I found the OME shock in www.4x4groupbuy.com

Front: N188S $280
Rear: N190 $150

Shipping = $ 24
Total with shipping = $453

Is there a better source than this?

I've talked to people who will run only OME shocks on their vehicles. I say go with OME.
