Re: Springs, A arms, BB vs SB coil springs ????
If you go to coilover shocks, get lower A arms that are made for coilovers. The stock spring bucket can restrict access to the shock mounting and adjusters depending on brand of shock. If the adjusters are on the lower body of the shock, the spring bucket type A arms are a terrible choice. Ride Tech and Global West make coilover specific A arms. I don't like the QA1 style of spring. The upper end mounts in the stock spring seat, the lower is on the shock. It's very easy for the coil to put side loading on the shock and destroy the seal.
I like the Ride Tech coilover shocks, they have a lifetime guarantee. A shock that uses std common circle track/roadrace coils is easy to find other rate coils for.
