Im looking for a suspension upgrade for my 2004 DC 4x4 and I briefly fantasized about long travel before I realized it was far out of my budget for now. I checked out the mid travel bs thread and they are talking about 3-linking rears and 15-16" of travel these days so thats no more help than the long travel section.
what are some options for a functional suspension upgrade that wont break the bank? Price is flexible so if a little more money gets me a lot more performance then im definitely listening. i want more wheel travel and a smooth ride on and off road, not really concerned with how much "lift" i get.
the OME kit seems legit for $1150 for full setup front and rear - says 1.75" of added ride height but doesn't mention wheel travel numbers although im sure the are modest.
total chaos and camburg offer a bunch of products and kits, and I know the UCA's are a good upgrade for 600-700 bucks but I honestly get lost browsing those sites trying to figure out which parts are compatible with what and if what they are selling is everything i need or just a portion of the kit. any help breaking things down to layman terms would be great...
PS: i know i should make some calls to these companies and get some more info on my own and I plan to do so but i tend to trust you guys to steer me right as opposed to someone who wants to sell their product so again any help would be appreciated.
edit: to ask my question more directly - the OME is the full setup i can get for $1200. what can I get for like 3-3.5k and how much better can I expect it to be than the OME setup??
