How much lift? I believe stock length is used for up to 2.5".

Have the OME with top plate and 1/2 clevis -so it has about 3 1/2 lift. The OME 90009 struts cost 175 each while The Bilsteins and Ranchos are under 100 each but don't know if they will work with a lifted jeep.

OME or Bilstein
Rancho doesn't make a good front shock for the KJs now
All are the same up to 4 inches
