^ one of the benefits is that you can run a softer spring and still get the same "wheel spring rate" since you are eliminating the "lever-arm" effect. Another is that you can change the spring really quickly. We were doing a coilover setup on my AST 5200s but we ditched the idea at the last minute for other reasons. People simply have different ways of doing suspension...

No way. Why? You also need to reinforce the mounting points.


Edit - nevermind - all these points were already addressed haha.
