What's my suspension worth?

Hey guys,

Thinking about going back to stock as I don't off road at all and actually really like how 3rd gens look at stock height.

What's my lift worth?

It's a 3 inch old man emu kit with OME springs, OME shocks, and what I believe are the RockAuto Mevotech adjustable UCA's.

No leaks and everything is tight as a drum, but the shocks have some rust on them. Truck has 160k, unknown on the suspension.

What is my setup worth if I go back to stock?

Ome lift kits are durable but ride harsh as far as I know. Mevotech according to some were rebranded spc. Guessing, Shocks with springs $200 -250, mevotech both arms $250.-300

Umm, one of the selling points of OME suspensions is the fantastic ride and handling they provide.

Yeah, I know there are several lines of springs by OME but I find the ride quality to be fantastic, maybe better than stock. It reacts/rebounds quicker so on big dips you feel it pull you down but the ride quality really surprised me. I always road force balance at the dealer and with the smooth rolling wheels, you can cruise at 85-90 like you're not even in an SUV

It was speculation on my part since I've only read about it.

I speak from experience, I had an OME suspension on my Isuzu Trooper, and have their rear springs on my 89 4Runner.

I know bilstein 5100 with ome springs is a popular combination. But the ome shocks are not as popular.
