Re: Back to school 2nd Quiz.
Coils are cool for a trailer queen....but id rather stick to leaves. They still offer almost as much flex as coils do, but IMO theyre more stable, and you can carry more weight on them. And the simplicity! You dont need to set up a 3-link or 4-link for it to work properly. The less components there are, the less there is that can break! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
Of course, coilovers are cool, but then you have to take into the fact that the softer coil is on top, so you will still get alot of body roll unless you have a anti-sway bar, which would remove any advantages the coilovers have offroad unless they have disconnects for the trail.
Of course, if you wanted to build a 'monster' of a truck, id go coil, since the higher you go with leaves you lose flex (and the ride worsens), whereas id imagine you actually gain travel with coils.
