So I get my car inspected today and it turns out my front shocks are leaking and the coil on the LF is broken. This is a new to me truck and upon further investigation it looks like they are a set of Donahoe Racing coilovers in the front. Which is great news if they weren't banged up.
I understand Icon makes these now and my question is how much do you think it will cost to have them rebuilt and can I even do that? Lets just say there's no way I can afford to spend the $1200 for a new set of Icons so I'm also looking for suggestions as to a cheaper alternative. It looks to have DR reservoir shocks on the rear, so I don't know exactly what my lift is. Looking at the fronts it's probably around 2" or so.
I found these Bilstein's on ebay for $199 but I don't know what springs would work with those or what height to set them at, I'm assuming if I choose wrong I'll have to take them back off to re-adjust the height. Not to mention what other mounting hardware I need. Can I mount them in my garage even? or do I need a special spring tool? Think noob.
