Best Vendor for Old Man Emu

Alright, after reading all the hundereds of posts on suspension, I am going with O.M.E, but dont know who to buy from. I am leaning towards Rovers North as they seem to be the least expensive for 4 springs and 4 shocks plus steering dampener I would like to stick to a vendor that really helps out the D-90 source though. What are your guys and gals thoughts as to who to buy from.


Thanks,

Matt...

BWOverland seems to be a good place. Plus Jesse is active on the board.

John at Expedition Exchange would be my choice. They have a very good and informative website and are always willing to help out with questions. They don't have the best prices but for a few dollars extra it's nice to support them.

I got mine from EE prior to BWO's start up. EE is great with customer service, very professional, I've made several purchases from them. With that said, if I had to do it today, I would buy from BWO. Jesse is the most knowledgable, helpful vendor I've come across.

i got mine from Bill Burke. He spent about an hour on the phone with me talking through selections and installation tips. Solid individual.

Ken,

I sent you a PM.

Anyone,

Can I install these in my driveway in about a day? Any special tools?

Matt...

Yeah, they are a pretty easy swap with some simple tools, search around a little I think someone explained how to do it easy.

I got mine from 4x4Connection.com. Cheapest place I have seen so far. Very helpful staff.

I don't believe there is a right or wrong place, but do keep this in mind: help those that help you. I bought mine from EE years back--fantastic people and I continue to purchase stuff through them. Pangea Expeditions is local to me now, though, so if I was to buy something now I would probably use them. If I can help out the local people, I will--even if it is a few bucks more. And yes, Nathan, next time I need a KandN filter I will call you!

So that's why you ended up with wrong springs in the back

Yes. No.
Dealing with the front brake line was a bit tricky, I had to stretch it a wee bit to get the front spring in. A floor jack really helps with cycling the axle. Did mine on a sat morning - piece o cake.

yeah, well that was my bad. I think that if you've got a ST and don't load it up with gear regularly, you should have MD in the rear and HD in the front.

"there's no such thing as a stupid question, just a stupid installation"

Matt, You can put the springs/shocks on in your driveway. Airtools are nice for the rusted bolts though. I broke about 4 bolts on my gas tank carrier with hand tools. Used a shop for the springs and it was much easier. (but as Yousef points out, I did them again on the trail in PA. Learning curve was pretty high by then, lol)
