Help with suspention lift for '88 Samurai?!?
I recently bought a stock 1988 Samurai off the original owner. It has never been off-road and is in great shape. I will be using this truck half the time on paved roads/highways as my daily driver, and the other half as a hunting rig in the bush. Not looking for any wild articulation or anything, just a good safe ride on the road that is capable in the bush as well.
I just put 215/75 R15 BFG AT tires on it and would like to add a small BOLT ON suspension lift with the least amount of other changes necessary (brake lines, steering, etc.). I have read extensive amounts of the great posts on here but stilll have a few questions...
A few guys seem to suggest the OME kit. If I go with an OME spring/shock kit (2.5" in the back and 2" in the front if I am not mistaken) Are there any major changes I need to make other than maybe longer brake lines due to increased articulation??
Is there a better kit I should be looking at? Anyone have any comments on the OME shocks that come with the kit from Rocky Road?
All in all I am fairly new to this, and dont have a huge amount of money to spend right away. Any suggestions you wish to make for my little hunting rig would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
