Re: How mutch lift with an Old Man Emu SUA kit?
I can't say for a YJ, but the conversion kit for my CJ, using the YJ length shackles and rear springs at all 4 corners, was only 2-1/2". The front sat lower because of the Warn 8274 winch I had on at the time. When I sold it and installed a Warn 8000i, the front was almost level. In an effort to improve my approach angle (the front shackles hit quite often) I installed the OME "fitted leaves" and replace the YJ shackles with some HD CJ shackles from 4WDH. The added springs made up for the lift from the YJ shackles and did not change the ride quality. I run 33-12.50 tires on 10" rims, extended my bump stops, modified the front shock mounts to run longer shocks and have a 1" body lift.
