Good to see that thing get some TLC. What did you decide for the front end coilovers or coils?

BTW if you have anymore 44 shafts/hubs that you want to get rid of send me a pm.

Going to be running coils, coilovers just cost too bloody much, they would save room on the axle tubes, but I don't think I can justify the cost right now.

What coils? I have the 6.5in BDS zj coils on mine and they work great, however they are really soft. With that said I wouldn't recommend anything else for a sas on these trucks, the ride and flex is just awesome. I’m not sure how they would like the extra weight of the v8 tho.

Also, I would highly recommend Ballistic’s adjustable coil mounts, they fit perfectly on our trucks and having the ability to adjust ride height is priceless.

I was going going to order the ballistic adjustable coil mounts, I got the lowers from ballistic with the integrated lower link mounts. I'm going to start with stock V8 ZJ coils in the front and work from there on how much lift and what spring rate I need.

A&B spring here in town switched my leafpacks around and cold arched my springs back to where they were supposed to be, and so far they have held up, I think they are stock, but I bought they truck with the SFA so there are many parts I am about. Ill be starting with XJ Coils in the rear, as the weight should be right.

First time I've touched it in 3 weeks, tow truck droped it off at my house and I just now got it back on jack stands. Welcome to my new work shop.
