    Given the koni fiasco I went ahead and installed the new old man emu coils with the existing shocks while I wait for the returns to process. The rear coils alone seem to have trued up the way the truck sits a bit, so I'm encouraged. I'll try to post up before and after photos this week.

    22" extension is a normal number for Land Rover shocks. Where you specifically looking for longer travel shocks?

    Yes, as with the new coils accounting for heavier payload and camper trailer, longer were thought to be better. With the new rear coils in, though with the old shocks, the take is now more level.

    Longer shocks mean longer brake lines, bump stops, spring retainers. Make sure your suspension is properly designed as a system.

    Ive now had 'Godzilla' out and about for the past two days. I've only been on roads and highways thusfar but I've driven enough to think the OME coils and Koni Raid HD shocks were worth it. It rides like an entirely different truck, not as soft, not too harsh but firm and responsive like it's ready for more. I still have about a dozem off items to sort out on the rebuild aftermath, but so far I am pleased with this part of it.

    How do those front coils feel?
    Any chance you can measure the static ride height of the coils between the top and bottom spring perch? Should be about 300mm roughly

    They feel great. I'll work to measure in the next day or so and post.
