i was thinking about how i could fabricate a rear coil setup, but am wondering if i copy the front coil tower dimensions and put it on the back can i use the same length coils as the front. or will the rear then sit higher/lower than the front? it would be really conveniant to be able to run the same length coils front and rear, but dont know if i can without fabbing towers for the rear with different dimensions that the front. thanks for any inputthat anyone has.

why not just move the buckets up or down until you get the right height.......

yes i can do that. and thats probobly what i will have to do to make it work with the same length coils for both front and rear. to make the bucket would i be better off to go with round or square tubing? i would prefer to do it with Square tubing, but could use roud tube. are there any advantages to one or the other?

Thread Hijack: Are D44 rad arms and using the D44 wedges close to bolt-on for making the 9" coil w/ rad arm and trac bar? I'm going to assume that with this setup you wouldn't be able to physically have axle wrap, right? Would the C-bushings wear from being under power all the time like this? Just curious.

I can't answer your first question, but for the second question, yes they should eliminate axle wrap since they are acting like traction bars on a leaf sprung set-up. I'm not sure about your third question, but I would assume they would wear faster, but I really don't know.

I have this *crazy* dream of doing a coil/rad arm swap next winter/spring on my truck. Actually I need it now more then then, but its not "in the plans" at the moment.
