    How much of a difference would it make on the street bumping up from 500 to 600lb coils?

    that’s a very broad question with all of the variables involved. Overall I’d say significant enough to really question that decision. Why?

    If you're happy with your ride height and quality I wouldn't increase spring rate personally.

    Anyone on here have issues with your coil-overs or bypasses smacking the mounts when turning super tight?

    driving straight then I go to turn hard right into a parking lot and I can hear (what I believe because you can see the wear marks) the top and bottoms of both my coils and bypasses up front smacking the mounts on the frame or control arms.

    I have remote reservoirs on both and keeping the hoses tighter where they mount keep it from happening so much but not into having those slowing down the twisting.

    just curious if anyone had this issue and any solution. Thx

    What mounts are you talking about? Coil bucket or custom top shock mounts?

    So i did the Chevy 63” leaf swap a while back for better performance but now I’m looking to go SUA and it perform better. What would you guys suggest for a leaf pack that’s 63” eye to eye?

    Give deaver a call and see if any of theirs will work. If not they can always make you a custom pack to best suit your needs
