OME vs Poly

I want to upgrade my RC 2.5" BB to springs.

Its a 2dr X with a Smitty XRC bumper and 10k winch.

Both have a great reputation, both will cost around $300
and both will net around 3".

So what springs should I get... OME


... or ...

Poly
?

no poll

i vote for ome. I love their springs and shocks on my 2 dr x. Rides great on the street and super flexy off road. Cant say anything for the poly because i have no experience with their kit but i think either way you will be happy

No brainer

No brainer Poly Performance all the way, I went from OME HD 3" coils to Poly Performance 4" and i find the Poly's more comfortable, controlled and importantly much longer so more suited to long travel shocks (progressive goodness).

Cheers,
B.

Thanks for the input guys.

I am leaning toward Poly, I just needed some encouragement.

Lets talk about inexpensive shocks... Think cheap.

For the money would a twin-tube TF VSS pair well with the Poly springs?
or would the RE mono's be a better choice.

$80 for the RE's is already more than I want to spend
But if the ride from a mono is that much better I'll save up.

I understand the whole leaning toward Poly, they make really nice stuff, but the OME rides like a dream. Buddy of mine has it on his 2 door and his ride is super nice. It flexes well offroad, although it seems to be a bit bouncy on the rocks. I would say Poly springs and OME long travel shocks. Then you get the best of both worlds.

I agree don't go cheap on the shocks or you will regret it and end up spending more to replace them. I can't say enough good stuff about my ome system, but there are alot of PP happy customers too. I think it will be a win win decision either way.

x2 dude....

We spent a TON of time making our shock and spring combo work together. Do yourself a favor and spend the extra $20 and get something that was designed to work all together...

We don't call it SYNERGY cause it sounds cool. There is a reason behind the rhyme.

I do believe that you guys make the best stuff and I would absolutely love to run a
Synergy system. But I did not really take the shocks into consideration.

It's just gonna take a lil longer than I thought to get it done. It will have to start life as a
Skynergy system , and run my wonderful Skyjacker shocks for a while longer.
