OME lift

Looking for a full OME lift from one of you die hards that's upgrading but didnt kill it. I have heard that improve both onroad and offroad handling. Is that your experience as well?

Lifting a vehicle almost never improves on-road handling.

That said, many of the Defenders whose owners are on this forum are probably optimized for off road and the lift certainly helps there

I just help my friend pick up his 2006 rubicon and it drove felt like shit on the road compare to my 90 with OME HD springs, shocks, and steering damper. No comparison.. I mean it's no cadilac, but his jeep was shit.

I think it handles better on road. The springs are stiffer and the shocks are much better. YMMV

The ride is much improved with the OME springs, shocks and stabilizer. But don't drive it like a race car, cause it's no race car. Good time to dump your swaybars as well.
