coilovers?

Is there a shock system that takes the place of your coil springs and you relocate and cut your existing shock brackets?

I'm sure I'll think of something

There are a few Coilover kits out there. What exactly are you looking for?

Having to cut your vehicle up to make coilovers work is a road many wheelers don't want to go down. So far there isn't a system for what you are looking at doing.

Because of that our system is designed to bolt right in place without having to make any permanent modifications to your JK.

Our system consists of bolt on front and rear brackets - even your front factory spring bucket is retained for optional hydraulic bump stops.

Was wanting to do away with my existing shocks and mounting brackets and just use the coils it comes with already

Can't use the rear option. I'm putting in a Gen-Right duel gastank. What other options do I have?

Sounds like your looking to just mount your shocks inside of your existing coil springs much like alot of the late model trucks with IFS. I havent seen a kit for this so youd be looking at custom stuff and i dont think you will gain a whole lot fo anything going that route.

I've been following dirtys coil over installs, he knows what he is talking about. Here are a few links for you.

Dirty's Minions don't officially exist. They are a myth, a bedtime story, a whispered rumor. They are ghosts.

Looking to free up some space where my rear shocks are. Just don't know what to do.

I'm sure I'll think of something

Running shocks in the standard coils would mean considerably less travel but horses for courses I guess...

From the investigation ive done outboarding the rear means running very low backspacing/spacers and/or close to full width D60's to provide enough space unless you plan on cutting the chassis. Or maybe if you stuck with skinny tread and spacers.

Dr Dirty, are you talking about the extreme kit as opposed to the bolt on rear kit?

Cheers,

You are talking about more of a strut assembly, but I don't understand what the shocks in the stock location get in the way of the make you want something like that.
