Next project... Well, I have a fleet of fun rigs.
2010 Winnebago View (setup for remote off grid: solar, lifted, tires, on board air, etc) - spent 86 nights in it last year.
1998 Rav4 2 Door Convertible - Manual (fun rig - restored it and lifted/tires/etc).
1998 Tacoma (rock crawler : setup for week type camping trips sleeping platform - 37s, arb, dual cases, supercharged).
2010 HHR SS - Manual 260HP (road trip vehicle and hauls mtn bikes and just fun).
2016 Jag F Type S (new member - named Jagster and 6 speed manual - fun twisty road vehicle).
Always playing with stuff and adventuring! Will be out with the RV for a few months this summer then taking the Taco to Moab for a week and Rubicon, Fordyce, Dusy Ershim. Probably head to Baja this winter
Will do! Ill report back in 4 weeks!I couldn't swing the $3k for the Kings so I went with Lovells EHD Front / HD Rear + Bilsteins for my Gen3 build but I will be saving up for these Coilovers for later on down the road. I was tempted by Dobinsons because they came out with a coilover that's less than half the cost of Kings but too many bad reviews of the shocks failing. They got the ride and comfort right, but couldn't get the reliability right which is why I went with the known, most proven option.
Be sure to keep us posted ChrisCosta416 on all aspects of the Kings! How install goes, and how the ride is, etc.
I am digging the Jag.Here's the fleet! Montero was the "do everything" vehicle (big sunroof: open air like convertible, spacious: sleep/camp inside, rock crawler: conquered the Rubicon, big v6: sporty-ish, practical: decent fuel mileage). But decided that having different vehicles for every task would be more fun. This has been an accumulation and building for the past 3 years or so since selling the montero. All the vehicles are rather completely gone through.

That's way too complicated... Just bolt in the coilover. Mark the contact area on the upper control arm (easy and very obvious). Only makes contact at full extension. Remove upper a-arm and trim/weld additional plate/support. Bolt in. Really really simple. Not a big deal.Sorry meant motion ratio. The company I am working with will be tuning them and they asked if I could get the following measurements
- Distance from the mounts of the frame to the LBJ
- Distance from the mounts on the frame to the coilover mount
- Angle that the coilover is leaned in
If you do not have them I can just measure my own but I am hoping someone has these measurements handy!
