So... Ive been doing some searching and finally after having the money to do some I am wanting to upgrade my coilovers. Thinking TCK D/A's? Any alternate suggestions??

Also will be selling my current setup. ST Coilovers w/ Vorshlag Camber Plates.
Coilovers- ~3500 miles
Camber Plates- ~1000 miles


.... So if you know anyone who may be interested let me know

Ruben I'm surprised you didn't just go all out and suggest leaf springs with a live rear axle swap.

4 link is the suspension type, uses coilovers.

A ford 9" rearend is one of the most common straight axles in performance applications.

And a tub or mini tub is when the rear sheet metal is massaged to fit the axle and huge slicks.

I have TCK 550/600 with TCK front camber plates and they are great. You can always go for a ride to see what you think.

They are so much better than motons....
