SOA or Pro Comp Coil Conversion

I am either going SOA or the Pro Comp Coils on my 94YJ. (The present 3" susp is not quite enough) The Jeep is a daily driver (20K/yr) but I wheel it in the rocks almost every other weekend when trails are open.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: SOA or Pro Comp Coil Conversion

If you want more than 3" then SOA would be a better choice...however, you would be better off using your original springs...the SOA will give you about 5"...If you already have 3" and use those springs then you end up with about 8"....and a rough ride. There is some good information in some of the old posts regarding SOA's. Some of the factors to consider are the need for anti spring wrap bars, CV drive shaft...etc. If money is not a consderation then maybe you want to go with the Coil Over conversion. I guess I have now added to the confusion....Good Luck.

Re: SOA or Pro Comp Coil Conversion

For a daily driver if you can pony up the bucks, the coil conversion is your best choice. The SOA is a great way to get the flex and clearance you want at a resonable price, but the road manners leave alot to be desired. If you choose to go spring over stock springs are your best choice. There are alot of great write up on this on the web.

Re: SOA or Pro Comp Coil Conversion

Thanks to all, I'm still not positive but I'm leaning to the coil conversion since I do spend so much time on the road.

I've driven a couple that were setup properly and the road manners were just as good as stock. Th problem is that most people either don't know how to set them up properly, or they don't want to put in the money & time to do it right.

Re: SOA or Pro Comp Coil Conversion

I have been running a SOA with OME's for about a year now, everyday. No track bars, just a sway bar. rancho 9000 up front and 5000 in back. Awesome on the trail and great on the street!
