I'm with Woody too. Shocks is the first thing I thought of. What have you got on there for shocks?woody said:pics?
stock springs and stock shackle angles will still net a less than smooth ride....relocate those mounts
and which shocks?
pics do wonders...
I would proablly run winch's front and rear and nix the sway bar issue. Coil the front and air the back. Or coil over on the front and coil in the rear. I love the simplicity of leaf spring and they definetly snow wheel better.Mace said:3K is what, 2500US??
With airshocks I can see that. Althoguh material pricing has increased considerably lately.
And if you add coilovers you will double the cost of shocks. Figure 2K US just for 4 corners of shocks. Air shocks, are closer to 1K for 4 (ish).
And if you cannot do it yourself it gets expensive, quick.
Sway bars run conservativly about $250-350 per end. Almost another K just in sway bars and mounting.
Costs add up quick for something that is not broken..
