    anyone running the OME 90004 front struts and rear OME 60062 shocks???

    i have the bilstein 5100's now...but after having them for a while....they seem to get stiffer(thats what she said!!:eek:) the more miles you put on them. im thinking the ome's will have a better feel and go with my 881 coils a good bit better.

    if any of ya'll are running them....how do you like them? can anyone compare the 5100's to the ome's?

    also....wondering if those rears will work on my truck since i have wheelers 5 pack rear leafs........wondering if they will be long enough.(i have 5100's in the rear now as well)

    If the 5100's are working for the rear, the OME will as well

    why's that?

    I have the 90004s still in the box. probably going to get 881s soon and put them on. All i know is that the description says they are intended for a "sportier" ride. whatever that means. I have 5100s plus wheelers AAL and timbrens in the back and it's pretty nice.

    Dents. Some bed work to haul a quad.
    Yep. Bought a set.
    Beware of the ride for these struts and rear shocks.
    They are advertized as smooth; however they are very harsh and stiff.
    Control over bumpy roads (in a turn) is substandard.
    I think that a better application would be for off-road racing.
    Cheers.
