    Thinking about my rear spring options, anyone have thoughts of what I should run? or where to go?

    Anyone have thoughts on 6" rear Procomp lift coils for a 00+ tahoe?

    Too stiff, go with lifts springs from a lighter vehicle since you are cutting the ass off of the truck. Some people use the Cherokee springs for a rear coil conversion.

    If you use rear spings, why not BDS?

    BDS doesn't make rear coils.

    Anyone have thoughts on TJ coils? Know a jeep guy who is working with me on getting some coils, he said I can pretty much have his 2.5" lift XJ coils for free when he lifts his more but that won't be for a couple weeks. He said I can probably find TJ coils easier, makes sense more people modding Wranglers than Cherokees. Anyone have thoughts on what spring rate I should be looking for?

    Those may be too soft. I know Brook tried them and pulled them for being too soft. I'm starting with stiffer V8 ZJ coils first, and I'll see where I need to go from there (if anywhere).
