So coilovers and all the parts are ordered I'm going with the same setup or close to it as mikerider

Fox emulsion 6.5
12" springs 700lb
No name limit straps
5/8 shaft eibach bump stops
Seat belt weld on limit strap mounts
Extended eylets
Meoostepside coilover conversion bracket kit

Ill post a more detailed update with all the part numbers and my total cost but I'd say it's about 1200$ total for the the conversion

Looks good glad you decided to tackle the springs! It's easy to do. Make sure you torque your u bolts again in a 100 miles.

Good work, I hate to rain on your day but the stock black bumper needs to be removed and your bump stop is installed upside down.

I would cut off the stock black stop, having the other ones upside down won't effect anything more then esthetics.

You could have someone make a thin skid bracket that you could bolt up there just to make it look cleaner

A few more pics of the lift my bracket kit was missing 4 bolts for the upper brackets so i picked up some stainless ones at home depot and took it back apart today and drilled those in the shock tower and painted everything. Later I'm gunna sand everything down to metal and repaint it but for now i just brushed the dirt off and spray for a better temp look.


Went and did some hot laps by the green river valley today since the weather was awesome !
