I don't know if I'll (also) need to get the coil over(s), too since I'm getting the OME 883 HD springs in order to compensate for my future after market winch and front bumper. Thoughts?? Also, how do you like the Timbren bumps? I saw those tonight on Wheelersoffroad.com
and, since I don't have much automotive knowledge, I didn't want to invest in a product that is unnecessary. Also, what's the difference between a diff drop and a beafed carrier bearing drop?
If you do that math...its only marginally more for a full on set of coilovers.
Once you buy the OME struts, the coils, new bushings, new coil isolators (trust me, those will be worn out), and ultimately new studs for the top plate, because they will end up being fucked up.
Then if you dont have a spring compressor you will have to (in order to do it safely) pay for someone to put the shocks/coils together for you.
I was going to get OME for my truck...but I ended up getting some 2.0 sway away coilovers because the coilovers are $750...
While the OME struts are about $300, the coils are $150 a pair, new bushings $30, isolators $20, studs $20 (because my truck currently has a top plate spacer w/ extended studs)
Then shipping, I was less than $200 away from the 2.0 saws....so fuck it...why spend that much when for just a little more I can have the ideal setup I really want.
