Our 94' with OME HD springs needs new shocks. Is anyone running anything other than the OME shocks? thanks in advance.

OME is good. harsher these days by a bit but great on heavy cars. 


Bilstein I thought of, heard they were also pretty stiff.

I know Nathan (SLOHybrid) and Chuck (Desertcrawler) swear by Bilstien.  But like anything, there're are various versions available.  They are running the remote reservoir variants.  I believe that's the 5160 (?).  After that you start looking at stuff like Fox and King.

'07 LR3 HSE/HD - slightly non-stock

'96 D1 - even more non-stock

Bilstein 7100 12" & 14" travel 360/80 pressure w/reservoirs... love them (thanks Don)  you get the race technology without having to rebuild them every year like FOX :D


I get mine from Eshocks .com... you could also run the none reservoir 7100's for A stock look but either way you will need to change the mounts for a RRC ... go with D2 upper towers and get the rest from Rovertym... he can actually sell you all of the above minus the shocks although he has some "brand" I am not familiar with.


If you are just running this on the street I would go with the yellow Bilstein shocks available from most aftermarket Rover suppliers.


King brand are really nice if you don't mind spending $500 -800 per shock.

I'm running the terrafirma adjustable in a +5" travel configuration. They have been doing well for me and enjoy the adjustable nob on the side for quick changes.
