Anyone have info on doing a coil-over swap??

I have an 87 4x4 and was curious to see how difficult it would be to do a coil-over swap at all 4 corners. I still have IFS, would i have to do a SAS. I will mostly be doing alot of mudding and some light/intermediate desert running. This is also a daily driver so it needs to be reliable. What are the advantages of having coils instead of leaf springs?? In my particular application would coils be better? Also what exactly would I have to do and what parts would I have to use to make all this come together if it is possible?

Im not sure but i think you would need trailing arms for the bacvk axle and cut the bed if you wanted a lot of travel. Also i think Advanced Toyota Suspension has a front coil over kit. Check them out. Post on the Yota board if you havnt already, this board is practicaly dead.
