A book for coil suspension basics?

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good book I could buy that explains the ins and outs of different types of coil suspensions as applied to four wheel drive vehicles. I plan to try this on my samurai this summer, i search through hundreds of threads about it, but most threads dont cover the basics so I have to guess most of the time.


Thanks,
Ryan

Check out the Sway a Way site - lots of good inof.
Not much in the way of books related to off road vehicles - most of the stuff is on road racing cars. But as a reference Chassis Engineering by Herb Adams is pretty good. Got mine from Amazon - they have other titles as well.
