Re: coil springs

yeah its true, and it depends on the coil size how much of a lift,but if you want a 1 - 3" lift. 3 being hopeful you can take your front coils and put them in the rear and put new coils in the front,and that is a cheap way of lifting.

Re: coil springs

yeah ive been looking at the IRO benchmark lift. but im new to all this. do you have any idea EXACTLY what i need to lift it a total of about 5 up front and 3.5 in back?

i already have my 2'' bb for the front put in. so i know for sure ill need a new track bar. but as far as lower control arms, a tcase drop, etc.
