    Wheres the best Store/dealer to get Old Man Emu shocks/springs from in canada

    Hey everybody, so i have decided to go ahead and start the lifting of the jeep and i have narrowed it down that i want the Old Man Emu springs and shocks.
    (this is based off of countless reviews read and people i know who run the setup and can back the abuse the OME Lift system can take)

    Im going to want to run the HD springs/shock duo on my jeep as i usually have a passenger and plan on putting on a tire carrier on the rear soon as well. plus if i ever wanna upgrade in the near future to a larger kit itll be easier to sell over the LD.

    the part #'s for what i want are the following

    TJ front HD springs
    OME # 2933

    TJ front shocks
    OME # 60047

    TJ rear HD springs
    OME # 2942 for basic tj's and 2949 for LJ's ( this is a issue im having, to llocate the HD rear springs for the LJ model specifically as they are designed for 216lbs/in hense being a heavier vehicle over the standard tj which uses #2942's and has a spring rating of 160lbs/in)

    TJ rear shocks
    OME # 60049


    Now the only place i have found in ontario is in burlington 4wd parts. and there like 1200$ before tax, if i go through a website i know in the states its around 680usd$ then with the conversion its 910cad$ and with border tax its like 1030$ all in. the trip costs 40 in gas so it be about 200 cheaper to go through the states.

    but the issue i then run into is if i need to warranty a part and the hastle that then comes with having to go to the us to get my parts each time.

    So anybody who knows anything about the OME 0-2.5" Hd jeep tj lift kits please weigh in on besst purchasing options available
    THANKS!





    p.s. also would consider billstein 5100's if the price is right.

    Give just jeeps or ct motorsports a call. I'm about 90% sure they both can get ome.

    Incidentally, I had em on my JK amd wasn't that impressed with ride quality.

    Canadian Shield 4x4 in Niagara should also be able to get them. http://www.canadianshield4x4.ca/

    I have the shocks on my Jeep, never any issues. Used them along with the nth degree springs (for LJ). Now I only have the front's as the rear's gone coilover, but that's another story.

    Hmm perhaps it was just the JK stuff that wasn't great and they got the tj stuff right.

    I love OME but heard they shit the bed with their JK suspension. Was gonna go that route when I had my JK but was warned to stay away, even though they have offer amazing products for Toyotas and apparently for older Jeeps too.
