So I called Tomken today to see if their new bolt-on coil spring conversion was ready yet (good pics here
). Well, the good news is that YES it is shipping. Of course the bad news is the cost. We are looking at $2850 for the kit. Ouch.
The kit is just about complete with everything you need including Dostech (spelling) shocks, and extend brake lines. According to Mike at Tomken, who runs this setup himself, you will need to do the following:
1. Replace rear driveshaft with CV shaft
2. Add 1" body lift to clear some of the mounting HW
3. Re-route the exhaust system from the headers back
He said the kit plus the body lift gives you 5"-6" worth of lift, and he clears 35" tires. He also said it rides like a dream on the street, not tippy at all, and off-road it articulates like a demon.
Also, it come with a new rear swaybar, but you keep the front stock one, and they provide new disco's for the front. He said it flexes so well, that he rarely disconnects the bar except on the most extreme trails.
I asked him about the front driveshaft, and he said that no mods were necessary. I forgot to ask about the steering (like if you can run high clearance steering), but I have a feeling that it completely replaces the steering as well.
Well, that's what I know. Now I have 3 months worth of thinking to do to decide whether I want to lay down that kind of cash...
