suspension ideas

So I wanna make a big change on my suspension. One of two options. Should I do an SOA or do a coil conversion. What's your ideas

Search jeep yj soa with Google. There are a lot of goods threads on multiple sites. As for price, I'd have to disagree with the above posts, it's not that cheap to be done properly and there is a lot more to take into consideration than just moving the springs on top of the axle and getting longer shocks. I'm slowly getting everything together for my build. I can't wait to do it.

soa is by far the cheapest of the two if you have access to shop equipment and the knowledge to use it

Price isn't an issue and have done a few SOAs. I have all the knowledge and shop equipment and all to do either. Really. The coil kit. Is only about 400 dollars more then doing an SOA properly. I'm just trying to decide if I really wanna destroy the basics of the yj.
