all pro expo's with OME N182's?
 
title says it all, can you run OME N182 rear shocks with the all pro expo 3" leaf packs without bottoming out the shocks? i already have the n182's and am leaning towards all pro now instead of the dakars

bump!

MJonAgs32 03-12-2012 10:58 PM

Actually, I think it'll work. Wheelers says the N182s are 13" and AP says any 10" shock will work with the expos

13"? Damn! Measure them unbolted at the bottom for extended length and measure how much shaft is left for compression. I've seen the AP standards flex to 26.5" assuming most leaf with bumps compress to 16" that's 10" of travel. The main issue you'd have is the bump/compression travel!

I don't know how accurate that is. The website says 13.85"x23.93"

But I can go outside tomorrow and double check

Don't think the leafs compress that much? So only about 8" of travel really!

revisiting this thread

so I'm installing the expos in a few weeks. are the OME N182s ok?

The OMEs are 13.85"x23.93" according to Wheelers and Sierra Expeditions (listed in mm)

This guy says you need them to be 27" and not 24"

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...ml#post4478688

but there other inaccurate information in there so idk how to read it

I think 27" might be accurate. I have the toytec aal, getting the allpro standards soon. My truck's rear flex is limited by my ome shocks, If i disconnect the shocks I get about 2" more flex. I'm looking for a shock that allows 2 inches more travel than my current ome n182's.
