Sitting Level - OME & ARB Bull Bar w/ Warn Winch

All,

Just got my ARB Bull bar and Warn XD9000 winch installed along with my OME springs (751 Front and 764 rear) and shocks. As far as i can tell the rear looks just about the same height as it did before. Additionally the front seems to be a tad (1") higher than i remembered. I was wondering if this is normal --- can i expect some settling from the front? Anyone else running this set up with the same issue? Can you send some pics of your rig so I can compare to mine?

p.s. i did the obivous checks and all was installed properly.

thanks for the reply -- kinda hard to tell from that angle but i don't think mine is that high in the rear. I have a SW, could that be a reason.

I know not the best pic, it is just one I had laying around, I'll try and get a better one a little later. But SWs are somehow a little heavier in the rear so that could be why, I think allot of SW owners use spacers in the rear, but I thought the bumper winch combo would have offset it.

Nedim, where in NY are you? I have a set of OME spacers on my Rangie that I don't need anymore. Let me know if you need them.

They are the OME spring spacers (I think they are 10mm in height). I got them from EE a few years ago. They are free. I just need to remove them from the RR (it's going to be donated before the end of the year). I have 4 of them. If you want them just give me a few days to remove them and we can meet up somewhere in the city.

Hey John,
Nice web site. I had no idea that anybody here in the states carried all the Scorpion Off Road stuff. You should hook up with Chris Von C and come up with a special or two on this forum!!!

this is gonna sound stupid. but i think you have installed the springs backwards. forget spacers...switch the fronts with the backs and i bet you anything your problem will be solved. try it...trust me.

Jon,

Sounds great --- I'm gonna double check this weekend that the springs were installed correctly. The shop left the tags on them so hopefully it won't be too hard to identify if they were installed backwards. If thats not the case, i can meet you anywhere in the city. I work around Union Sq. Contact me offline at nedimaruz@hotmail.com

Thanks, Nedim

I have the same setup and there was some leveling problem which I corrected with the EE spacers and it was a Breeze. I used 2 spacers in the rear and one in front to get a little extra lift. I can get pics if you are interested. I think it was 2 in rear and 1 in front. It was a long time ago. Haven't been under there in a while.

I put 751/764 into my D90. I actually remembered to measure before and after too. The front springs were the same length as the ones that came out. The rears were I think a wee bit longer.
Result after the swap: front was the same height; rear was up an inch or two. So it rides tail up unloaded, but putting stuff into the back levels it out.
I have no idea what springs came out - I assume OEM but I dont know for sure.
This is a softtop with Rockware/XD9000i up front.
