Coil Over information?

Hey guys I've been looking at different coil over threads and from what ive gathered they are mainly to maximize ground clearance and increase ride comfort.

Im kinda looking at doing a coilover swap this summer but I just wanted to learn the basics of it first. I see that you have to fab up your own brackets which is pretty simple but what do you do exactly? Pictures would be appreciated.

Any information is welcome.

Yeah, Its about the guy wanting to make brackets. I already know about the need to make your own brackets. Im asking about the conversion as a whole. I wouldnt even know where to begin and im looking for insight.

I guess the "what do you do exactly" made it unclear haha it wasnt what do you do to make the brackets. It was what do you do to do the conversion.

You...make brackets..And add coilovers.



So you call ORW and order the coilovers, then remove the torsion bar hardware. That previous thread had a link in it that shows what ORW did, tons of pics

Hey, Did you even read the links words? It said "ORW Coil-Over Conversion Brackets". Now doesnt that link read like its going to where they just sell the brackets? I didnt click on it because thats how I read it.

you can look into f.o.a, but ive heard there construction is a lil ehhh. i havent actually seen them in person but i mean thats almost as cheap as you can get them. im going with king just because they have everything down to perfection. great customer service, the shocks are hand made to your specs, and offer revalving and rebuilding services. for the life of me i dont know if fox does that but as ive seen they have some very nice merchandise.
