Re: coil swap

Fronts can be used on either side, and rears can be used on either side, but fronts cannot be put on rear, or vice versa. Also, springs are different for different models due to weight difference, and must be ordered by VIN. i.e. a Hemi Overland spring is stiffer than a v6, and a AWD front spring is stiffer than a RWD.

Re: coil swap

Hi dmsfun, thanks for the info.
After long discussion with chap that does serious suspension work and did work for me previously, I decided to remove the "home made" RC spacer kit and replace with proper EFS kit, coils and dampers.

Will post my findings in future.
