Coilovers? Who What When Where????

I'd like to roll coilovers under the TJ. Though I'm having a hard time finding a kit for my rig. Am I dumb, or ignorant rather, is this something that is done, has anyone? How do they perform offroad/onroad? Fill me with your collective wisdom.

Skyjacker (note, not an endorsement for SJ) and Poly Performance, for two, make 'em.

What specific problem(s) are you having that you think co's are going to solve ?

At the risk of sounding rude.......Why do you want coilovers so bad if you don't know anything about them?

I have coilovers under my 4runner, which I rally around in, though it occured to me that I had'nt ever heard nor seen a tj with a similar setup. My question was the benefits in a slow, low horse power, hard axle vehicle. Thanks Though

The ride in the 4runner was jurasticly improved with the instalation of the coilovers on and off road - why am i defending myself - was this that ridiculous of a question? Come On - Skyjacker makes a 4inch coilover kit, Thanks for the direction.

Why buy a complete kit?

Piece it together and you could end up with one heck of a setup.

I'd start with Clayton Hard Arms and go from there.

IMO, the Skyjacker kit is not worth the $.

Don't know that there are any benefits, for most, for coilovers, over a properly setup TJ running coil springs and shocks.
What aren't you liking about the ride, on and/or off road, of your TJ ?
There may be better ways of fixing those specifics, that adding coilovers are't going to address.

Either Rock Krawler or Full Traction offer coil over kits for TJs. I can't remember which one of them it is.
