Part # 29203-1 are on their way. There is one set in the US and they will be in the mail. I will try and empty the KJ out when they get put on to havea before and after photo. I hope they work well with the Koni adjustables.

I went back and checked.
The OME's we installed raised the front and rear 3.9" or 10cm.
I think that is too much, just hope they have settled down in the 2 years since installation.

You said 10cm that is 100mm, I am going 40 mm about 1.5 inches.

Still nothing! I called and the guy is out. I will call back on Monday. I need to get these on before my trip on Saturday. Grrrr.

Grrr called again today and they are STILL IN WASHINGTON STATE. Going out today on UPS, no chance of getting these installed before I leave on Saturday. I wanted to try these on the road when I drive to FL on Saturday.

Yeah right...I think you should measure that again. 4" lift is gasser Frankenlift or JBA 4".

OME springs only normally gives you 2" or 2,5" at most.

Ow..Jins, how is your KJ after its trip over the Atlantic? Thinking of shipping mine to the US (and back to Spain) next year....

No issues except someone pulled up on the 4x4 lever and left it in the part-time position.

I will add more notes later. As of now I thnk this was something I really needed to do to the KJ. It rides much better and I was afraid if I continued on like I was, the Koni shocks would have broken from bottoming out. The KJ rides much smother, higher and without any loss of handling.

UPDATE 17 April: just went to the store and back and as I was entering the driveway, I came in a little fast to see how the springs would absorb the dip. Well I cas say this, no more bottoming out th shocks, it just compressed and let the shocks do the fine tuning. Tomorrow is the big day when I go to work and do some trail driving.

So far it rides much better and certain breaks in the pavement are more smoother. $430 for the springs, $3 for anti-sieze and $30 for the lift. I did some other odds and ends while I was there and took my time. 5 hours with all the other things and included cleaning up.

I felt the same when I saw other with their lifts. So get a move on and get that lift!

I'm impressed with how they leveled the Jeep out - all four corners 33.5" from the pavement.

What's the possibility of doing measurements from center-of-the-hub-to-fender flare? That will give a better idea of how much lift it will give, and tell you if you have any asymmetry in the stance.

Hmmm that's a new one, progressive springs for the KJ!!!!!! (OEM/OME are linear springs, so I would be a bit worried about front flex offroad...of wich we have little already)

...Congrets Jins, looks great. These should do a good job for you, considering you race your KJ on the Nuerburgring... :-)r

These are all taken from the middle of the hub.
