So if your running a super lift already you keep your 4inch lift in front if you do coil over also?

Go make your own thread. This has nothing to do with your truck and is completely different than the OP's truck.

And it's HARDWARE, not hard wear.

Yes, you use the superlift drop brackets, and you remove the torsion bars, keys and torsion bar brackets under the drivers side door. Then you pop in the ORW brackets and put in the coil-overs. Done.

Well, it comes out to about the same I think said and done, but since the RCD is no longer produced, this is the alternative option.

Superlift is what... $1500 + $600 for coil over swap? Still a tad cheaper than the RCD at $2300.

As easy as bolting in a few brackets, and running a weld bead for the gussets.

I know this is an old thread but id rather bump it than start a new one...does anybody know if Off Road warehouse still makes the coil over conversion kit for the Superlift kit? Or if Nick@ offroadwarehouse. com is still a valid contact?

Nope they don't make the kit anymore...last I checked Nick still works @ ORW but wasn't very helpful when I talked to him months back.

Hard part is making some brackets for the conversion. Once that's done, I have confirmed that standard "off the shelf" Fox CO's will work without problems.
