PieFace synergy makes a kit also. Ive been researching and think that it may be the way to go.

highwayman OP, there is no comparision between stock and C/O's. There are at least two major comp's that offer C/O kits that don't require cutting the tub. EVO and Rebel for example.

Aftahour there is rebel off road bolt on kit.

PieFace Genright uses shock towers thru the tub.

thats what Im trying to avoid.

xcraftllc Check out Genrights website, they offer rear coil overs as well as various packages. Totally proven and tested.

I already can barely fit more than the toolbox in the trunk.
Well heck yes they are an improvement over coil springs. You might want to ask yourself if you want/need to spend the money on them. It is not a cheap mod at all and is not worth the cost for lots of people. You can get something that rides worse then stock if you just buy some coilovers and a set of springs and slap them on not knowing what you are doing.

The factory set up is probably a good middle ground between trail and road. However, there is always room for improvement.

One of the biggest advantages of coilovers is tunability. You can choose your spring rates, set your preload, etc. etc. That is why that is the only thing you will see on trophy trucks, ultra 4 rigs...along with triple bypasses of course.

Littlehouse EVO: Suspension / Steering, Rear Double ThrowDown System

Something i've been drooling over. Not sure how well it works though

WatchThis! I have seen them done a few different ways on JKs. Ha I saw one setup where they were mounted to the rear bumper, great for mallcrawling maybe but not very practical to wheel with. I will building towers into my tub also when I get around to it. Dont really see any other good way of doing it and keeping them out of the way.

Cons_Table Check out Stan's (JPi1) rig. He's a Vendor here...JPi (Jeeperformance INC.) He has done a few coilover setups on rigs at his shop...including his personal Jeep on 40s

Rear COILOVERS?

Hey everyone!

Ive been wrestling with a plan for rear coilovers. Has anyone tackled this monster? How did you do it?

Do you love the outcome?
