QUOTE=sirhk100;13237892]Even not coilovers with just a good tunable shock it'll be night and day difference! Only advantage of the coilover is being able to run a longer more controled spring rate really. You can only get so much out of a standard coil in a bucket before it pops out or bows all goofy without the shock going thru it to control it's shape.
Fox, king, saw, bilstein, radflo, foa, whatever... all the same mostly so brand doesn't matter. What matters is that you rip them apart and tune them for your rig.
Any thoughts of tossing a hydro bump in there? Even a short 2" stroke one will make a WORLD of difference on the accidental hard hit or whoops I flew a bit higher then I meant to jump!
Are you thinking about competing or just keeping it a toy? Let me know when you're ready!!! I got a wired and blown race helmet and will have a fire suit soon! LOL Could possibly weasel a trade for shotgun seat time in the race truck later next year once we get the program a bit further along and bugs/details worked out... Eventually pass seat in my sections of the race will be up to whoever I want to toss in![/QUOTE]
Well, that Jeep is on 2.5" King "smoothie" res. shocks @ over $800ea plus tuning I just couldn't swing that. I will be going with 2.0 Fox res. tuned for my Jeep. I still may do bumps, but hadn't thought much about it. It also has several small things that I just don't feel necessary for my build such as all Billet Johnny Joints vs the regular ones I'm using. All heat treated steering links ect...
As far as racing it, I would love to, but SO many other things have to be done to meet Tech and all that. If I ever did, it would probably just be the one KOH stock class race. I mostly rock crawl, just want to be able to do some small go fast stuff at my own pace for now. BUT let me get some seat time and I may feel different
Just some info on that rig
