Pro Comp Coil Spring Conversion Kits

Does anybody have personal experience with this kit? Looking at options to replace some broken springs. The Warn kit is to extreme for me. I don't like the way it drives on pavement.

I would like to hear any comments - good and bad about the Pro Comp kit.

Re: Pro Comp Coil Spring Conversion Kits

I have it and so far, I got no complaints. It drives just like a TJ. The best thing I like about it is the Bolt-on part. If I ever want to take it off(SOA), I can. Not that I really want to after spending $3000(SYE, Tires, Rims, Brake lines, Misc tools included). I also Don't have the time/skills to do an SOA right now. The only thing I do not like is the sway-bar mod. They made me cut it in half and drill holes to put a sleeve over it in order to make it longer. Had to take it to a machine shop and they ripped me off[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]!! All in all, I needed a lift on my jeep and I had the cash so I did it and am pleased[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

Re: Pro Comp Coil Spring Conversion Kits

I am seriously thinking about buying one...I can get one CHEAP from a local vendor.

Any more thoughts??

I do believe Eddie Perez of the ORC staff just put one on his Jeep. I think there will be a full review on ORC in the Jan. issue, you will be able to see it late tomorrow nite. To contact Eddie: [email protected].

Re: Pro Comp Coil Spring Conversion Kits

Last I heard the kit was only available for stock axles. Are the kits usable on non-stock axles such as a D44 Waggy front, and 8.8 rear?

I forgot about that. That's kind of a minus. The Axle brakets only fit the stock axles. I wanted to swap an 8.8 on it but now, I think I'll just have to upgrade the existing axle....Maybe the superior upgrade.

Re: Pro Comp Coil Spring Conversion Kits

I bet with a little creativity and "custom" work you could get a d44 or 8.8 to work. Just exeriment.
