Default Coilover conversion?

Where can I find a kit to buy to convert to coilovers? Or what's more recommended to drift my truck, sorry If I'm making myself look like a real dumbass, I don't know too too much about these things but I've learned so much on these threads!

There is no kit. All custom fabbed - basically look at any good build thread where the truck is getting bagged and replace the bags with coil over mounts to get an idea of whats needed.

My under-educated opinion... Basic static drop with good shocks and fresh components, learn to drift gooder, start making modifications that improve the chassis and your abilities as you progress instead of tearing apart the truck right off the bat. Seat time > chassis/engine/modifications.

Coilover would be neat, but really you'll be a better drifter if you can make something janky drift then improve it vs going at it the other way round.

It would be quite a lot of work to swap to coilovers.
