if your curious to look at the kit <a href="http://www.totalcostinvolved.com/Parts045.htm" target="_blank">here's the link...</a> TCI is usually pretty good about their products, and instructions from other peoples recommendations.
I think you are correct about keeping it simple. I don't have any idea which way I need to go. I need to keep things simple, but at the same time I don't want to pour a bundle of $$$ into the project, and not be happy with the way it rides.
I'm much more concerned with the overall ride then anything else. if I can get a decent ride from the springs, then I will probably go springs.
so - how is your ride with the springs on rear? with an IFS crossmember up front am I going to be decent?
