X-Eng's X-Spring

Has anyone installed these on the front and how did they work?

I have retained springs now, but with the longer reach Bilstein 7100s I could drop a couple inches more with these.

There was an interesting discussion on Pirate about these I remember reading a little while back. I don't think it was of the favorable tone, but I could be wrong. Either way, just search over there and it should pop up.

I think you could use the shock tower that comes with the suspension kit used to replace the EAS on a Range Rover Classic.
Not sure if there is room in a D90 for the shock tower and you'd probably have to fab up something for the lower shock mount.
I just saw a picture of a D90 that had separate shock and spring mounts, but I can't find where it was. It was a well done custom setup.

You could use some front twin shock mounts like this :
