true true.. it weighs 80lbs. i want synthetic line which will knock quite a bit of weight off... but thats gonna be a while

but with the sway bar disconnected, when i hit the brakes with the wheels turned the tires rub, back up with em turned very fast they rub.. hit bumps very fast, hit a speed bump with em turned.. its kinda annoying

and hypercoil/eibach say the coils won't sag... fact or fiction?

edit: then i have my 50-60lb skid plate, and the mounting plate for the winch weights atleast 20lbs.. and i have a second skid plate in the plans
so figure in an extra 200+lbs over whats stock when the winch is on

higher spring rates will NOT affect load carryin ability. too stiff a spring will also overpower the dampers.

i would stick with a 750, there is plenty of adjustment thread left to figure in enough preload for the extra weight.
