    Thank you. I was going to go with the 6 pak shocks but couldn't find many people that were running them. Maybe coilovers next but I'm really liking these OME's The on road ride is at least as good as stock if not a little better.

    Good to hear. Im wanting to do the six packs due to the travel. Lots of folks opt for the OME or Rocksports because of the lower maintenance. I have heard nothing but good from all of the offerings from MC.

    I did get to ride in a rig with Rocksports a few weeks and back. It was very nice. Reminded me of the stock ride with 32ís......but we were at 3.5Ē and 37ís.

    Well King and Fox are some of the most sought after. And itís hard to argue with Kings reputation. For the money, I honestly feel the Rocksports are about as good as it gets. Rancho makes a nice shock that is adjustable to fit your style. I would suggest getting a shock that matches your spring rate.

    Edit: I forgot to go back up and read what you were running. Since you have the Game Changer lift, why not just move to the 6-packs? You will gain a lot of travel.

    I have the King adjustable 2.5s and couldnít be happier. They work very well with the MC springs. So well, that I am shocked that MC doesnít offer them with one of their kits.

    Roughly price-pointed (and therefore would compete with) the proprietary 6-pak shocks already on offer...

    Though I agree with you, I'd love to see what a GC 2.5/3.5/etc suspension would ride like on King Coilovers. I should have my chance in a couple months when a local Jeeper I walked through component selection with gets all his parts in and attached.

    They are not coil overs, but I have been in a JK and JKU on ORIís and MC links. It rode very nicely. Little body roll, no sway bars on one due to triangulation and the other wasnít running a rear sway bar. Handled bumps in road nicely. Off-road......they are beast.
