Been making these for a while, they are a weld on affair, and allow the kingpin trucks to replace the torsion bar setup in the front with Qa1 coilovers or equivalent.

The first few pics are of me mocking them up. The whole setup with hardware ships for $200 in the US.

These parts are all made of 1/4" steel, laser cut for precision.

The lower mounts look a lot nicer now as well, and I include 1/2" Grade 8 hardware for both upper/lower mounts.

Here's the info for the shocks that Ed "Sanitys" sent me for mock up:


For the dual adjustable w/ 7 inch 400lb springs the total was $594 dollars (shipped to oregon). I think the single adjustables are half that...

DDR3855 coilovers

Can you describe or post a pic of the parts that make up the upper mount? 3 pieces welded together?

Both top and bottom brackets are laser cut from 1/4" mild steel plate. The upper mount slides over top of the stock shock tower and welds in place, after the top of the shock tower is cut off of course.

It pretty much locates itself.

Please don't forget about us Frontier owners too. I would love to have some coilovers on my Frontier and I'm sure I'm not the only one..

Well, don't wait too long, I'll be selling my house in the next month or so and won't have a shop for a while...so production is going to stop for a while on everything.

Hey man. I've very interested in these. So for sure they will fit on a 94 Hardbody? And how would I go about ditching the torsion bars?

Yes they will. Torsion bars just unbolt. Lots of threads about it on here.

With this setup is there any room to run shockwave air bags? Smallest compressed length available is like 9.5 inches.

I don't see why not, you can fit an airbag in there
