Witch coils?

I have a stock suspension with coil spacer and TeraFlex Tuned Fox Shocks... Should I buy TeraFlex coil or an other like rock krawler (progressive) or metal cloak (two rated) or evo plush?
This is my DD, so I want it comfortable... And I want it to flex a lot.
In a neat future I wish to put 8 control arms...

Thanks...

I would look into Synergy/ Poly Performance springs too...I'm dumping my T-flex springs this summer and would like to hear some feedback on this question too.

X2 on the Synergy coils. OME coils are nice also. I'd look into the complete lift kits so you have everything you need to adjust and fine tune your suspension.

Witch coils are super street friendly. It's almost like you're floating down the road....

But seriously, I love my metalcloak coils. I also liked my RK coils on my old Jeep, but I must say the MC's ride better.

Just fyi, but the shocks are what affect droop/bump (flex). So if you're thinking you're gaining more by just replacing coils, you're mistaken. Ride quality, yes. Flex, nope.

I agree... But the coils need to be seated... If the suspension drops and the coils unseat you have useless suspension course...
Look at some videos from anti rock bar and they explain about total suspension course and useful suspension course...

We design our progressively wound springs to not come unbound out of the coil seat buckets under extreme down travel of the suspension. We also work with the Fox Racing Shox SPECIFICALLY so everything jives & rides as it should. Let me know if anyone else has any questions!

I had teraflex coils and when I went bigger I went with poly performance coils.

The poly ones are softer and I think the ride is a lot smoother.
