well shit man, i'm sorry it didn't work out- you should be able to resell it for more that you paid for it easy...
either way, i'm stoked on the direction your build is going now! what are the coilovers from?? for how much weight each?

well i was planning on buying some gsxr1000 rear shocks, i saw some guy put them on the front end of a miata. if they dont work trial and error is fine with me.

also saw some 16" coilovers at my local buggy shop and inquired about them and they guy said "people usually use those on golf carts" i dont think those will be strong enough lol

it might be worth your while to get a corner-balance done on your truck OR a stock HB just to know what the rear end weighs with the bed on. then you could look for coilovers with the right sprung weight

X-2, very good Idea, since our trucks are not 50/50 like a miata or VMW, don't want to get something spend all the money to find out it has too high or low of a spring rate, also might want to look into coilovers with some adjust ability too for bound and rebound.

corner balance is, in the simplest terms, using 4 different calibrated scales on a LEVEL SURFACE to determine exactly how much of the load is carried by each of the wheels.
sometimes, even if your ride heights are all equal, one side carries more that the other (torsion bars can be an example of this too!) if you know how much each corner carries, you can increase the spring rate of each side until they are almost all equal
(or on straight axle vehicles, you can at least balance the fronts)

in your case, you could at least find how much the rear weighs to find the right springs for your coilovers.
