Front suspension set-up

Well I have finally have the RRC fixed and I plan on selling it or trading it for a 89' K5 with 1-tons and 42's. or selling it and using the money on the defender. Street driving isn't much of a worry anymore because of my tow rig/DD.Right now I'm running 285'75'r16 SSR's on GCR rims, and plan to go bigger.

My plan was to find a SG 3-link or get one built for the front end and run some coilovers like BUCKON37's in the front, and get some RTE 3' springs for the rear because I already have everything i need to run them but trailing arms. I don't want to deal with have to do external shocks up front with new springs to get the flex I want. And later if I want to go bigger, I could

The only thing is, I want to be able to bring the truck back to stock if needed,.I do have a front axle housing from a 94' LWB RRC that I could use for all the mounts and swap everything from my d90 axle over.

Does anyone have a price range on what coilovers would cost me?

let the flaming begin

Fox 2.0 coilovers with springs will run you about 500 a corner ball park. 2.5 airshocks will run you about 320 a corner if you want to save some cash. 12" to 18" travel on both depending on how extreme you want to go.
