Does anyone have this setup, or know if this setup will even work on a 93 with the OME 850&863 combo??

Your "very stiff" probably has more to do with very little suspension travel and very little tire/sidewall flex than the quality of the shocks.

I wonder if mixing the two makes sense. Just thinking out loud but as I understand it the OME shocks and springs evolved togther. Did they not?
That's the point of buying OME - it is a system (I'm not saying the system is perfect, mind you). 5000's are a major step down. As far as I am concerned, Rancho shocks suck on lifted 4x4's, because they are rebound valving biased (allowing extra compression and harshly controlling the rebound is not what I want in a shock).

There are reasons beyond brand name why some shocks cost $30 and some cost 2 or 3 times that.
