Thread: Old Man Emu shocks
04-05-2004, 06:10 PM #1
I am posting this in Gen Chat because I'd like to hear from both all jeepers, not just XJ. But I have heard good things about Old Man Emu shocks. I am looking for a better ride, while not giving up Trail riding prowess.
Any opinions on these. Or any others?
I hear from friends and some other forums, that OME shocks are comfortable, while still providing off road performance.

I know they are expensive.
I have a friend with a '92 YJ. We carpool. He's got an OME 2.5" lift on it and the lift is about 4 years old. It rides better than any other Yj or CJ I've ever been in.
That being said, and keeping in mind a large reason for that is the quality springs, I don't know if I would spend the money on the shocks alone. They might be worth it, but there's some real good shocks out there for less money. The Doetsch tech 3000 is a good choice (alot cheaper). For about the same $$ as the OME you can get into some of the 9-way adjustables that are out there (rancho 9000, pro comp, etc).

Does anyone know of a place where they display the shock, along with prices, so I can atleast compare?
