I sold my D90, and then bought Tom Peacock's D90. It's all David's fault

I've got no personal experience with coilovers, so take that comment for what it's worth. The reason I feel that way is, after wheeling with Brendon L who has one of the most capable D90s I've seen and coilovers all around; it does extremely well in some situations and not so in others. In Las Cruces, where the ledges are tall and steep especially for a short wheelbase rig, the front end of his rig would unweight considerably more compared to the coil sprung D90s on the same obstacle. He is a brilliant driver and still managed to make everything look easy, but the characteristics were evident none the less. No spring or setup is perfect for every situation and you could alleviate this with a limit strap or winch rope hooked to the front axle.

Hope your doing well Tiz,

I understand. People need to keep in mind that Coilovers are.....a shock and a spring. If they are mounted incorrectly, spring rates are incorrect, or the shock is not set correctly, you get troubles some times. What your seeing most likely is simply more travel, accessed easier. Front end rebounds. It can be dealt with like you said, or some comp guys over charge the shock. Carry on...

I installed the new suspension this week, I ended up with the Rovertym RR4-3 in the front and the RR3-3 in the rear (thanks again Nigel). It is a true 3" lift, that sucker is tall. I now measure 23.25"-23.5" from the center of the hub to the bottom of the fender flare. There is a lot of space in there, probably going to have to get 35's . With my front DC shaft and stock rear shaft, I had no vibration at all . I will have to correct for castor and pinion. I spoke with Steve at Rovertym and I probably could have just gotten away with drilled swivel balls, I opted to do the arms also. I like the new springs a lot. The truck sits very level, and has a very smooth/solid ride (I also have the rubber isolators from EE).
