Yes. You can lower the truck as low as you need to, infinitely adjustable height. $330 paypal shipped or $300 cash pick up in SoCal. The springs are now a special order item, takes me 2 weeks to get them now. Same spring rates available, 375, 500, 600, 700.

Hey guys, yes I still sell them. Never intended on selling these for years, thought people would buy them the first year they're out then be done. Nice to see they're still popular!!

If we can get 5 people together to buy then I can order them in bulk. Processing one order at a time is, well, not the best use of time and I don't like to have $$ tied up in inventory that sits for months. It's a low volume product and I have to take it to UPS so we can have decent online tracking. That's why I offer to bring a set to local meets for someone to buy in person, which works well for everyone.

For MOTOMISFIT or anyone w/o a paypal account, I'll take cash, a Money Order or Official Bank Check. I used to get a money order for less than a $1 processing fee at a liquor store so it's doable. Banks charge about $10-$20 for an OBC but I'll take one nonetheless.

I won't take a personal check, had one bounce 2 weeks after depositing.

Price is still $330 paypal shipped or $300 cash pick up in SoCal. The springs are a special order item, takes me 2 weeks to get them now. Same spring rates available, 375, 500, 600, 700. Everyone's bought 500 so far, stock is 512.

Once 5 people commit to buying on this thread then I'll talk about how to paypal me. Once the $ comes in then I'll order parts.

Thanks,
Brad

OK, I'm in.

Would there be a disadvantage to say 600# springs? I'm not sure what stock rides like since my trucks been down since I've owned it and the last time I drove a repu was more than a decade ago.

I'd like to get mine setup for spirited driving eventually.

Brad, i am totally in! do your coilover sets come with front struts also or are those an item that must be purchased?

if for any reason we can't get 5 people on bored, please email me. i am willing to pay more for your time/energy you have to throw into setting these up. i REALLY want a set.

i'm looking for a solid 2 inch drop. what do you recommend for the rear's? 2 inch block? 1 inch block and 1 inch shackle? 2 inch shackle? lol sorry for the q's, im just trying to get all my parts ordered and together.

also, do you maybe have a pic of the product and a pic of a repu after installed?


another q, sorry....but does anyone know the factory spring rate? i'd like to step it up to the next rating, stiffin the front end up a bit more.



anywho, sorry for the laundrylist of questions, and thanks for taking the time to help us out brad.

Hi Slinky,

No shocks included. I'd recommend the Bilstein or any other stiff front shock that can match with a 500+ in/lb spring. I put up a thread on the Bilstein.

Just need 1 more person to commit, we'll get there.

My coilovers lower 1 3/8" at a minimum and as low as you can go at maximum. 2" drop can be done. You'll have to trim or remove the bump stops and there won't be much suspension travel.

I don't like shorter shackles as it makes the leaf spring move fore/aft quicker and more abruptly. You'd be best with a simple 2" block.


Here's a shot of the original sets I sold. I now use a bronze colored perch now but you get the idea. Spring is the same as in the pic and they come in any color you want as long as it's CHROME.




Pics with lowered front and stock rear height:

600in/lb will be 17% stiffer than stock. It will ride harder but less lean. It would be great for autocross. I like a spirited drive myself but 500 is plenty stiff for me.

OK Payment info emails sent the following people on this thread:

top1usa
MOTOMISFIT
bluedevil87
Slinky
remydrm
stevenoz

And these people I found interested from other threads
PetesREPU
jfaplanet

Anyone else in? Just add you name to this thread and I'll send you payment info.

Don't forget to let me know what spring rate you want. Choices: 375, 500, 600, 700. For reference stock is 512 so I and everyone else so far use 500.

Once everyone sends payment I'll order all the parts in bulk so don't expect super duper fast delivery after you've sent $$, we're waiting on everyone to order.

Thank you!
Brad
