It's been a while since something's popped up on my '98 5.9 that I haven't been able to figure out but here's whats nagging me lately: I've got the Old Man Emu shocks and springs (the heavy versions) as well as 2" spacers above my OME coils. It's been over a year now I guess from when I had the suspension kit put on but now the Jeep's looking a little nose high/saggy in the back. I thought of ditching the front spacers altogether and getting some of those adjustable ones but I've heard that they can be a pain in the ass to adjust. So instead I've been looking at airbags (mainly for the rear, but possibly all 4 corners). I'm talking about the kind that fit inside the coil spring, not the ones that replace the entire spring. I need help in what to look for when shopping for airbags. I've seen kits for stock '98 ZJ's but wouldn't I need larger bags to fit my larger Old Man Emu coil springs? Could I keep the 2" spacers or do I have to get rid of them? Also, do I have to do anything with my bumpstops? I really probably only need them on the rear axle, but if I'm going to be buying the parts, compressor, and the controller I'll probably do all 4 corners. Can anyone recommend what brands I should be looking at and any other hints or possible trouble spots I may run in to along the way?
