well im looking for were to get a good set of coils and what spring rate would be good to use . keep in mind i want it soft so i can get super twisty but not to soft. and also Joe said something about TJ coils . i have 4 fronts off of 2 that i lifted a while back and would like to know the spring rate on them as well. thanks jamminzz

I think rear TJ coils have some good flex and they would be relatively soft. Front TJ coils might be a little stiff under a lightweight zuk. I know a few people that run the TJ rear coils and love them, great flex.

I run QA1 coils, but ask Benji about Clint's old Zuk. He flexed very well with TJ's. Hope ya run bigger axles also with the coils.

Clints rig did very well with TJ coils!

Where they front or rear coils that he used or a combo of each?

I am using sidekick springs, I havent tested them yet but I have been told that the soft top rears would work great.

I bought mine from RRO. there 175lbs each. Thay have been working great for a couple years now.
My Samurai is a little on the heavy side so I went with the higher spring rate coils.
Friend of mine ran the 150lbs coils from RRO on his (much lighter samurai) and did real well with them.
Thay cost me $60 each.

Yes, all stock fronts. I have a ton of Nocona pix of him and they flat worked.jamminzz
