    Itís that long plastic case in your tool box with dust all over it. Probably buried in the back somewhere... thereís an expensive shiny chrome wrench in there that clicks when you use it right.

    I think these dual rate coils are a waste of money and a marketing gimmick. Every one of these installed shows the top part of the coils sitting compressed solid. What good is a quarter or so of your spring unusable in 99% of the driving conditions your Jeep will ever see? And the part saying that part of the spring being an extended coil bucket is stupid - a properly installed system will not allow the coils to unseat.

    Best bet is to stick with a good linear rate coil that uses the entire spring length. You may even want to look at the Dynatrac and EVO kits along with the Mopar kit.

    Thanks for the knowledge. I canít imagine hitting a trail that would fully extend my suspension, but better safe than sorry. And their videos looked so convincing. Haha

    Iíll focus on my ARB compressor install and continue my suspension research.

    Thanks again

    You bet - that's what we're all here for!

    It's easy to get a little caught up in the marketing hype. Everyone's out there trying to get you to spend your money on their shit so they come up with novel ways to try to sway you to their parts. You'll tend to see several brands recommended here above others for good reasons - they're proven parts.
