    Default Poly performance JK rear coilovers

    Well I finally took the leap off the deep end and decided I needed coil-overs all the way around. First id like to thank Dave @ Poly for twisting my rubber arm and convincing me that i had to have them :thefinger:. The set up is super easy to install. A good sawzall will be you best friend for the few hours it takes to install. This is what I started with. Once you got the vehicle on jack stands and the tires off you can begin the fun. Youll need to remove the track bar, rear springs, shocks and calipers. I saved some time because my muffler was relocated 2 years ago . If yours is in the factory spot you will have to remove it for this install. I found the sawzall to be really handy when removing the factory exhaust hangers. once removed you want to clean the frame rails up Youll also need to do a tad bit of trimming but nothing major on the old upper shock mount

    I followed polys tip and painted the mount before throwing it in, this is very important because you will NOT be able to completely paint it once installed so do it before you install. Once you got it where you want it fully weld it in. Make sure you get all the edges top and bottom, this is the only time i wished i had a 2 post lift. There were some awkward positions to get her all welded in Once your done there you can move on to the lower mounts. I was pretty lucky because i install ORE skids a couple years ago so my mounts were still pretty straight. you need to cut the lower shock mount off as well as the lower portion of the mount off. I have been looking at cutting the rock magnets off for a while so Ploy def was thinking when the chose the design for the lower mounts. once again the sawzall with a good blade makes very easy work of this. a Here is a shot with the lower mount slid on. The driver side was a bit more difficult for me, the teraflex track bar bracket had to be modified. I ended up cutting the leg off. Ill be ordering the poly one soon once you button the lowers up your done!!!!! I need to order the proper coil-over spacers. Polys rear kit uses 1.5" spacing and fox gives you bushings for 1.25" So i had to get ghetto and use some washers but it will not be staying like this.
