Front shocks and spring change. Need opinion...

Members,

I was hoping to get better insight and first-hand experience on changing front shocks and springs ONLY.

Currently running OME shocks and springs (3" 884). The front is disappointingly sagging quite a bit after two years. Considering swapping in BP-51 front coilvers. Will this work? Make the ride better or worse?


Any advice will be appreciated.

I'd go ahead and do the fronts and see what you think. If for some reason the ride isn't what you prefer you really only need to change the rear shock which is pretty easy. If your happy with the rear coils I wouldn't replace them. And honestly if it's just the ride height up front you could consider just swapping that coil and leaving the strut. (Although buying a pre built coil-over could be the same cost as paying to have the coil swapped.) Kind of depends on your budget. If you have money to burn go for it.
