Coil over

Anybody out there done a coil over conversion to there 40. If so how hard is it? What needs to be done to make it happen?

I have participated in a couple of build ups where I used to work.
Really not that hard.

Try a search for 71RCKCRZR RYAN. He has a sweet 40 with coil overs.

this is probably a dumb question but can you have coil overs and be street legal?

Sounds to me like you need to read your local DMV regs. No two states are the same.

Inatallation of coil-over shocks is the easy part... setting up the link geometry is the challenging part, and the part that ultimately determines how well the suspension performs. IMO, experience with link design, fabrication and testing in the real world is necessary to end up with a suspension that works for the rig in question. If you are brave and have a lot of time on your hands, search for the God of Suspension thread in the General 4x4 forum.
