How does that coil converted YJ wheel? I am considering this setup on my 95 YJ and am trying to get opinions from people that actually have it.

A real problem with rear squat on the steep stuff, has a tendency to make the front end light. We decided maybe if he went with some RS9000s cranked all the way up it might help.

What about some stiffer coils or would the weight transfer to the rear still be too much? And would that sacrifice the road ride?

Good to see the pics came out ok. Should've had the princess in the background since she's the only one who made it out without help[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]!! Hey Jaf, I sent you some mail on your monsterslayer account. I need your address to send you the rest of the pics(Disk).

Re: Memorial Day Pics ... entertaining the Albuq gang

If I had to do it again, I'd go SOA. The major reason I got it was because it was cmpletely bolt-on. It was my dail driver and I couldn't put her out of commission for too long. The steering bit on a good SOA setup was something I wasn't prepared for back then(or now).
I'm going back to the drawing board and go SOA on the rear. Brad was right. Everytime I hit a steep incline, the rear squatted down making the front lift up. It was scary and then it just made me mad.
I would REALLY think about the Coil conversion. It will also limit the axle type you want to run. IE: if you want to swap in a 8.8 rear, you'll have to make your own axle bracket. The road ride is nice, but if I wanted a nice ride on the roads, I'd get a Durango[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]!! It's up to you what you do in the end, but I'd decide against it. Pro-comp needs to go back to the drawing board on this one.
