Cool Genright Coil Over Conversion

Has anybody ever used the Genright coilover conversion kit? is it worth the money? Looks to be the best kit i've seen by far but not sure? Let me know what you think. Looking to get one for my '90 YJ

It's not about worth the money. It's how you want your ride to be. How you want to order parts in the future cuz after the conversion you cant just go to the parts store and get front end parts. I personally thought about it but honestly. I like to keep the Leafs. It's what makes a yj a yj. If I wanted coils I would just by a TJ. But that's just my two pennies

A guy I know used the Black Diamond coil-over conversion kit for his YJ, not the Genright kit. It made a dramatic difference in the ride quality on the road, and gave him more flex in the dirt, but it was a bolt-on kit that just had too much hardware to worry about. Not sure I would have wanted to take it rock crawling for fear of trashing the bolts and fasteners. Have you looked at air shocks as an alternative? I spent a weekend wheeling with a group of guys that included 3 set up with air shocks (3 link front 4 link rear) and that works amazingly well.

Not sure that was the feedback you were looking for, but that's all I have

Colo overs seem completely worth it especially upgrading from leafs. I will eventually get them for my jk. Way better flex and ride quality the coils and no comparison to leafs. Yes, if any part of the coilover needs parts you will have to order them, but the test of your front end will be fine. Setting up the links will be some work since the yj isn't set up for it currently. Coilovers also give you a lot more choices with aftermarket and junkyard axle swaps. As for bolt on versions rebel off road has had a few wranglers running their bolt on coilover conversions in the much of the hammers races with no problem. If they don't break there i would hate to see what you have to do to break them.
