Guaranteed AT LEAST 8 K for the kit... Not worth it IMO, just go long travel...

and get sick amounts of travel out of it...

Deja vu, i swear this has been posted AND discussed..

i think those might be compression struts...the coil acts as a torsion bar replacement right? so why have a coild and torison bar?

It's a strut bar, like what rancho uses between sub frame and trans crossmember

I wonder if they had to deal with any frame twist due to the forces on the new coilover? I also see that rockkrawler suspension is also doing a coilover conversion for our trucks, they locate there coilover on the top A-arm. I wonder if there is any advantage to this? They are also claiming 13-14" of travel. One last observation, both kits are 8.5-9" lifts, I wonder if they had to be this high for a reason, because I would love a 4-6" coilover conversion so I could still fit into parking garages. I can't wait for these kits to hit the streets so I can check them out, they look very cool.
