Re: cj coilspring swap are spo?

2nd the filling out of the profile... If you want some info on coil spring conversion do a search. I'm sure your going to get almost 50/50 with Coil or Spring... some can get a spring to flex like Nuts others Praise the Coil Spring. Its the time an effort you do with your suspension. If I'm not mistake Ricochet... I think did a coil spring conversion using some ford parts? Anyone back me up there? [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Coil springs were sent by the truck GOD's! They are the best there ever have been and ever will be in affordable suspension. Coilovers however are the best overall. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

coil overs, no question about it! The travel is amazing!

If $$$ matters go spring over.

Re: cj coilspring swap are spo?

if you have the money, ability, time, patience, and talent go coils without a doubt, if you have almost as much money, ability, time, patience, and talent, but not quite, then go soa, but if you go soa do not try a shackle reversal, that is mostly for on road handling and will not be good for your jeep if it is going to be crawling.

if i had the resources to do either i would definitely go coils. just MO [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
