Not to me. **** all that high dollar **** for a trail toy/ occasional driver. I wouldn't go through that much for just stock axles.

I can see your point, but wouldent it be around the cost of the coils and nice shocks?

Maybe, never priced them. But tell me this. Can you explain to me the true benefit to running coil overs?

cool points
















and the ability to completly tune your setup, have obscene amounts of travel without worrying about coils unseating and better packaging options for stretches/small spaces/ect

Adjustability, more usable travel than most coils, lighter wallet makes you faster

205 a piece for an 18 inch coil over

http://f-o-a.com/shop/index.php?main...&products_id=5
Then the springs from summit
The Naxja jeep speed section has good advice for mounting them
Also look at vanimals write ups

To me it seems like a better option than the price of coils and a decent set of shocks but that is just me
And I am no were near needing or affording them
