Before......




After.....


have better pics just gotta find, anyway hopefully this will achieve what matt was looking for , minimal lift with firmer ride, personally I think we need to shorten one spring &/or add one more, we'll see how it does for him this weekend...

No, just tight (as they should be ) He did gain an extra 1.5"-2" lift but we were really shooting for firmer ride & I think we got it , def. much better than the AAL that was on it... He's going to romp'em this weekend & give me some feed back, actually I'm glad it didn't lift anymore than it did , he's about at the end of his rear 5100's travel...

NO, There is no distictive stink bug lean. Morning all, well i havent had time to romp them yet but the drive home and to work this morning was nice. They felt great, i could really tell a difference in the new/old custom built OMD"s.
I just wanted to give a special thanks to Mr. Doug(4WD) for taking the time out of his own schedule to build and install these custom made OMD Leaf springs. I will be testing them out for him this weekend and given some feedback. All in all i think they turned out awesome, but we wont know if we achieved what we were looking for until i get out and hit them hard!
BIG REPS TO DOUG(4WD) THANK YOU SIR!

The God's, or the Powers that be wont allow me to add to your REPs It says that i must spread the reps around before adding to your Reps again. Well thats just plain Bullshit!Why would i give Reps to someone who has done nothing for me. Your the only one who steps up in the time of need and that is why my Reps usually go to you. WHATEVER! Like i said before BIG REPS GO TO DOUG FOR ALL HIS HELP WITH MY TRUCK! If i cant click on your rep button ill type it in!

If you consider a nice punch in the mouth a kiss then you may be about right haha. Matt puts his stuff through some abuse as he should. I saw Matt's truck this weekend and it looked good! I think you may have a future with the OMD customs suspensions there doug (I still get the pizza dude discount right?) if so I'll be by in the next week for some upgrades

As long as the pizzas flow buddy, you got it !!

I think more than a few here would like to try it but ya know you just have to say "What the hell, I'll give it a shot" I'm 2 for 2 on the successful rebuilt springs & will gladly help anyone who wants to do this cheap MOD or for a fee I'll build them for any prospective customer with their specs. (what they want ,lift & firmer or just firmer /minimal lift
