Poly was the first to come out with the frame brackets, just an FYI. Shop smarter and you can do a lot better $$-wise on coilovers unless you just have to have Kings. I'd call up both and see what they can do for you on total price. Ordering that much stuff should definitely get you a discount.

Call, don't email. As for CO's, have you done any research on them? I'd suggest you spend some hours doing that. Swapping to CO's is a bit more complex than bolting them up and going. IMO, Kings are great but there are better values out there. I've been looking at 2.0 Fox's and Radflo's for the rear and 2.5" for the front. You'll get much better (and more) answers over on Pirate. I'd research the topics first.

FYI, I run the Poly (Synergy) mounts and built my suspension around them.

Are you planing on stretching the wheelbase at all? For the 3 & 4 link "kits" there is a lot of fab work involved... what about a truss on the rear? What about your exhaust? Why coil-overs?

I can see wanting to toss wads of cash at your Jeep... but what are you honestly trying to accomplish?

If you'd like an easier route... I'd suggest a long arm kit from Rock Krawler or Clayton. Everything is already thought out. Plus you can still have a damn good suspension with some very nice shocks and coil springs. Check out some of Rawkon's videos with his Fox Shocks.

i do want to stretch the rear 5", relocate the gas tank and improve my ride quality, plus i do plan on 60s, hydro assist steering, and 44 inch tires sometime here in the future.

If you are saying "in the future" ... how far away is that? I mean, you just put in D44's... if you got money to blow, buy me an 8.8 :D

For the price of just the 3link and 4link you are looking at, you can just about buy a full on Clayton kit. Then just buy some REALLY good Fox Shocks and you'd be pretty well off.

Youre building all backwards.

Buy the stretch kit and 3 link and 4 link now, then buy the 60's, hydro assist, and tires and coilovers...

How much of a stretch do you want? I would just stretch the back. The RK kit brings it to 102'' thats perfect for the TJ's. I can see what it takes to use FOX or KING instead of RK coil overs
