I ask because my mechanic got a promo 4 shocks and spring for $540 delivered.
(I need to check the math...$85 for each shock and $300 for srings was the first quote.......

His opinion is that they are "heavier duty" than the OME, big in Aus/New Zeal with the offroaders.
I am not trying to be cheap and by whats on sale, he just has such.
They have been making springs for a long time....but not specifically for offroad??

OME is far better, have had several buddies out here in the desert break a couple of shocks and the springs are "weird" in feel - dunno how to explain that, but OME is far better. I've been running OMEs for the past 4 years on the Disco and its been beat to death...

I guess I will stick with OME, I was happy with them on the 110 once I got it level in the front....
That's whats fun about Rovers.......learning whats good, bad,ugly
