Toss in the amount of pure guessing I will have on this(not to many builds like this to go off of) and I see myself buying 2 or even 3 sets of springs before I would get the feel and results I want. That on top of the fact that the shocks do need constant rebuilding and charging(at least every 2 years if driven like I plan) and the fact that they still will not allow the reaction time that I want had me looking elsewhere.

I am not saying coil overs are bad in any re-guard. I am just saying I feel they are not right for this build with the goals and uses I have planned. I am really trying to avoid shooting my mouth off with my crazy ideas. I am simply going to do it and you guys can give feedback after you see how it performs.
