110 OME 2" vs Terra Firma 2" lift

Anyone ever switch rear springs in a 110. From terra firma +2 to OME medium or heavy duty
I need to get another inch out of the back and wonder if I should medium duty or heavy duty OME would help.


Also wonder best place to buy OME

If you like the way it rides ie the spring rate of what you have I'd use a spacer under the spring cup if all you want is an inch of lift.

I was thinking that, but I also wanted to get the OME shocks in the rear like I have in the front. Figured i'd get it all to match

Probably want longer travel shocks with more lift, as droop (or lack thereof) will become an issue

Have no experience with terrafirma 2" setup but do have the 2" ome medium coils on my 110. Happy with it but am going to try the heavy duty coils in the back for carrying my RTT and gear. I just bought them through lucky 8 who also sells terrafirma and may be a good place to call with questions on heights.

I loved the HD TF coils on my last 110 and they are going on my new one as well.

What are you going to do with the 2" OME?

[QUOTE="tomaco1;529784"] What are you going to do with the 2" OME?[/QUOTE

Not sure yet, once I swap in the hd 2" I need to see if they will be too stiff for trail use and only best suited for when I'm using my tent. IF they are decent for both trail and RTT then I'll sell the 2" mediums and 2" shocks as those are coming off too.
