Coilovers

Thinking about upgrading the suspension and heading towards fox coilovers. Has anyone done this mod and got any pics? What sought of height would i be likely to get and what size tyres could i run? Also what are the advantages/disadvantages of running coilovers?

Check out the fabtech website. They have a pretty bad ace coil over set up. I wouldn't do anything less than 6" and a wheel base stretch. Then go with some 37's and call it a day

I'll go find it and post the link in a few

If they don't reply in this thread, send a PM to BigWaylon and JeepJay3279.

Both are running coilovers and they'll be able to give you some good info.
