I vote RTE springs and Fox Shocks.. But if you have a coupon for OME that is going to be the cheaper route for sure..

I needed new springs and shocks on my 1985 110 with a 200tdi. I asked around and the people using OME shocks told me they were good at first but tended to go soft over time.
I wanted a "true" two inch lift and went for Koni shocks and OME heavy duty springs.
So far no complaints.

The only lift I ever liked was pre-EAS RRC rears in the front and 220lbs (same as OME MD) rears in the back.

I have OME HD and OME shocks and really dislike the ride which I blame on the springs. Chicky, my previous D90, had stock springs and bilstein shocks and I like that a lot (if someone has some decent shape stock springs and wants to come and do the swap in my garage, they can have my OME HD springs for free in trade) and my LWB has bilstein shocks and stock coil conversion land rover springs and it is similarly great riding. Also, other than the net increase in ground clearance, HD springs actually are worse off road than stock as stock allows the tires to stay on the ground better.
