    You have OME ( Old Man Emu ) shocks and I assume springs as well on it but of course not sure which ones could be weaker 925s or 926s even
    NO 265-75-16s would not even come close to fitting since you need 4 inches of lift
    Not sure where you are but get ahold of www. murchisonproducts.com.au they are in Brendale 07 32055011 Stu is the owner and a great guy , He has owned KJs and knows how to lift them/ what you will need .
    www.jeepinbyal is of course here in the US and ships over there
    but Stu will do you right , tell him you talked to me on the forums, he'll know
    But OME 927 front and 948 rear springs are what you need , plus shocks that will put you at 2.5 inches over new stock

    Thanks tommudd. Very helpful.

    A couple of points; the front shocks were swapped out about 6mths ago. The new ones are Bilstein 24-139168 (purchased from this link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0068O1SLM/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
    These were replaced before I knew it was lifted. I don't think ive lost any height though with the Bilsteins. The rear shocks were swapped out for the Bilstein 24-139175 46mm monotube at the same time.

    I think the front coils are due for replacing anyway. Ive noticed over the past 2 weeks, they make a squeaking noise when going over bumps and dips, or if I bounce the bulbar a bit its squeaks like a mouse.
    I contacted ARB and they can get me the OME 927 coils for $263.55AU. Given I have a lot of weight on the front (bulbar and winch), I need coils to support them.

    The rear coils are very stiff but I think that's just their design. I have a feeling the previous owner used the Jeep for towing, given the heavy duty coils and the rear airbags.

    It's actually more of a cult of personality. We just follow Tom around like starry-eyed groupies. :love62:

    We have a guy here in the Cleveland area needing to get his lift parts installed. I know there are other guys who would be interested but people are having work and other real-life pressures. If nothing else, maybe we could have a meet-and-greet somewhere. I'd be game. :)

    Where did you see that at?
    We usually posted on LOSTJEEPs with our M&Gs and runs we used to do. No other " club " in Ohio for KJs unless some fakebooker started one
