are you referring to springs or ignition? if you're thinking of springs, and you're gonna custom install spring buckets or whatever, you might wanna think about air bags.......

I think right now rockyroad has the only complete system for a sami. Others like okie builds them... I think he has stopped though.

This rig drove down and then turned around and climbed up one hella steep obstacle at Weroc Donners. It was impressive to watch in action especially after seeing several rigs break or roll trying the same lines.

RRO's complete kit is half the price of Trail Tough's kit, but Trail Tough is known for quality and excellent service and tech support.

If you plan on driiving it hard, think twice before you go cheap with the RRO kit. Zero customer service, no tech support to speak of, and the quality of their parts is questionable.

X2. Local Zuk guy bought the RRO and slowly ended up replacing every piece with something home-brewed and stronger. Good base design for him to copy, but the pieces just didn't hold up.

Yeah I second trail toughs customer service and products! One of our other competitors in the RROCK series is running the Tracker coil kit as well. Nice well though out products. They really are very complete kits. Can't be beat! Jake

x3 my rro kit was pretty heavily modified before I cut bait and went another direction.

I have been running the rro 8" coil kit and it is a good solid kit. I took it on the rubicon and had only a few scratches. I also am looking at the trail tough kit now, for a longer wheel base.

They don't work. Here's one of the first things you should learn about samurais. NOTHING will work on them If it wasnt designed and built by Suzuki. Some might try and show you pictures of their link suspensions and engine swaps, It's all photo chop.

They's a playin wit ya!

do a quick search on 4 link samurai. You'll come up with some info. The three link works just fine and will give you better twist. If you cheap out on the rear mount though you'll twist it right off. Get a good truss on your axel, and weld some thick material on there for your rear Y-link mount. Theres a bunch of builds on the site using different kits and home brew stuff. Look it all over and make some decisions on how you want to do it. Contact the person who did the install and see if there are things they would have done different now that they've been running it for a while.

here's my setup, uses 3 link front and rear, and standard off the shelf tracker coils (vitara), plenty of flex in the real world.

OKIE- Why would you pimp your stuff on here when your not building kits anymore? Seems pretty lame to me.

Because he ask for pictures. He also asked about 4 link setups, which I've only done on Jeeps not Samurais. You must be the one that started the rumor that I have quit.
