    So how realistic is it to drive on king coils everyday? I am eventually going to put them on my truck, and want to know how they do on a daily driver. Also does anyone know what the website for the King coils is? Thanks

    i would imagine that the mild street driving that we all do in heavily modified trucks would be no problem.

    They are made to resist fading, improve shock mannerisms, etc. so i think they would almost be overkill for a strictly street rig.

    but these are just informed guesses /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
     
  3. Steve Frisbie has his K5 sitting on coils all the way around and uses it as a daily driver. I believe he said a little roll on corners, but it's all good once you get used to the suspension and how it acts. Making your frame rigid will help I think, Steve has his pretty much boxed front to rear. You can always adjust the coils somewhat to stiffen up for the road or use sawy bars and disconnects.
