old man emu lift

Hey all, do you guys think it would be possible to mod an old man emu kit for a 2004 to fit my 2006?

NO, it may be possible but its probably as much work as building something from scratch.

06 is a 4.3 generation which has a different suspension from 4.1 and 4.2.

That is what I figured Back to searching I guess! For a simple 1.5" to 2" lift this sure is difficult to find. I wish Cactus Country Concepts had not of went over to deaver suspension. A 2 month wait is crazy talk!

I am sure there will be some lead time but if all you want is springs custom are not as expensive as you might think.

You could always try coil spring specialties. They are a major supplier of custom coils with serious machinery and experience. If they quote you a time and a price they will deliver. Often they give long weight times and then deliver ahead of schedule. I have not personally used them but I know a few who have and were quite satisfied.

I almost went that route but since I have a 4.2 and the guys at safari ltd. swore by them I went with the ARB Old Man Emu springs.
