So I think you are on the limit, if you don't mind a little stiffer I would go with the 800s to be safe, cause the last thing I want to do is drop 500 bucks on something that sags on me a few months in.
Yeah, I agree. It all comes down to personal preference as 800's will make it handle/ride differently. Some say they are too stiff, some say they are just right.

Should i just weigh the two front corners of my truck and go with whichever is closest to the actual weight or are they not that closely related? I would think each corner would weigh a decent amount more than 800# but I have never checked.

Talk to us about this "Dual Rate" thing ?

I didn't hear it was time to order for the group buy, are you part of that... ?

Now the questions keep popping up - I will be running a Winch Bumper and a Warn XP Winch. I have been told that the #800 will be the best route, any opinions on teh #750s with this setup...

well the actual group buy is for the coilovers used in the RCD kit a single coil coilover..

in my application I cant use that -- So i emailed the guy explained who I was..told him what I was looking for and he said he could see what he could do..emailed me back in a few hours..and i liked the price and bought them..

if your wanting the single coil shock..get the ones used in the group buy..if not call em up..they are easy to deal with and know there stuff..

So has anyone figured out or got the part number for getting coil-overs for a stock/non lifted suspension?

The brkts should be the same, call Nick at Off-Road Warehouse and ask him about the height, he might be able to help.

Thanks, I might have to give him a call, I planned on buying the brackets from shadow anyway, and then figuring out the coil over height later.

Here is the latest update from Nick at ORW on the Shocks...


date Thu, Sep 17, 2009 at 6:39 PM
subject FW: Coil-over group buy
mailed-by orwmail.com
hide details 6:39 PM (22 hours ago)
Well I would just like to start out by saying how patient everyone has been with the group buy. I know in my last e-mail to all of you it said that they would ship the middle of this week. Well I had to place a call into FOX yesterday because I had not received the order yet and was a little concerned; they told me they would be done and ready to ship out by now. I was told that they are still working on the order and will be finished and will be ready to ship out by Wednesday next week. Sorry for the delay, I apologize and will let you all know when they are ready to ship. If their are any questions please contact me at the information below. Check out our back to the desert sale 25% off Bilstein and 10% off Fox shocks call for some special prices for those of you part of the Ranger-Forums community.
thanks
