I am trying to talk myself into saving up for some coilovers. Does anyone know anything about these doetsch techs? it looks like 15" travel emulsion shock(like the pic) can be setup dual-rate for about 300$ a corner. Anyone know how well they work?

The shaft is only 3/4". I bent them several times. I also had ALOT of problem with the seals blowing out. Granted it was on a heavy grand cherokee, but I did have any problems with the SAW.

Travis,

Any problem with the coils hitting the frame or any binding problems. That's not normal to bend shafts and blow seals a lot unless the shock is getting side loaded. Just curious what the problem might have been.
