Draw Tapered & Diamond Cut Leaves: Ensure the load is progressively distributed over a larger surface area, reducing the high stresses that develop at leaf ends. This provides increased ride quality and protection against leaf breakage, significantly increasing the spring life. Fully Scragged & Load Tested: Scragging ensures the spring takes a permanent set' which reduces the risk of sagging. Load testing ensures the spring meets the required specification. Graphite Coating: To further reduce the friction between the spring leaves & friction pads. Military Wrap: Designed to provide added safety. Anti Friction Pads: Regreasable nylon interleaf liners reduce friction at the leaf tips where the load is the greatest. Flat Axle Seat Area: Allows a positive, safe axle mount reducing spring stress & increasing spring life. Shot Peening: The tension side of all leaves is shot peened to reduce spring stress. This process can double the life of a spring. Two-stage Leaf Pack: Featured on most rear springs for optimum comfort. When unladen the vehicle is largely riding on the primary stage, with the secondary stage providing additional support when a heavy load is added.
I needed to replace my stock (completely worn out) spring and wanted something that would provide enough support to handle additional loads for gear as well as trailer towing. These OME springs fit the bill perfectly. They restored my ride and added a couple inches of lift. My bump stops have not seen my axle since the install. I would highly recommend these. I did order stock rubber replacement bushings for the front and rear eyelets. This was to negate the notoriously noisy poly bushings. I also ordered longer u-bolts to accommodate the thinker pack. I did not use the OME u-bolts due to mixed reviews on them being long enough.
4WP's was easy to place an order with and the shipping was prompt. No complaints.

So far so good. Really helped with the suspension, smooth ride, good lift.
What are all the additional parts and bits needed for a complete install of these springs? I've been told a sway bar relocation kit is required. How about U-bolts, Bushings, Shocks, Shackles? What's necessary? What stock equipment can stay?
Answer this question
You'll want to replace the leaf spring bushings and your ubolts. I have extended shocks and 2" lift shackles on mine already so didn't need to replace shocks. I believe you can mount these without extended shackles and I have 2 " lift and didn't need any relocation of anything.
This is just one spring, so you would need to buy 2 springs. What else are you trying to do? Completely lift your vehicle 1"? Please call our support line so we can understand what you are trying to do so we can get you the correct parts Toll Free: 1-877-474-4821

How much lift do these provide? Every other site lists as 1.5-2 inches for the same part number but these say 1 inch
Answer this question
As far as I know only about an inch since I did not own this vehicle, I was just ask to purchase it for them.
Can these leaf springs be installed using the OEM shackles or do they have to be installed with OMU shackles and pins ?
Answer this question
I wouldn't recommend ARB leaf springs, they squeak often and I heard the same from many Offroad owners who bought them. If you want quality, buy Alcan Leaf Springs.
