Maybe I'm just old school, but why would you want to swap from coils to T-bars?

Isn't it supposed to be the opposite?

If you want 'em just to crank 'em, it would be cheaper to get a used lift. Maybe even a new one.

I've never driven a vehicle with t-bars, so if I'm missing something someone set me straight.
