Why? Are coil springs inadequate? For which application in particular?

Hi Vitor,
There are a few kits around the place but only really useful if you
want to be able to alter the characteristics on the move - you are
probably better off just going for an OME upgrade and making sure that
you have the correct spring/damper combination for the weight your
vehicle is carrying.
My 80 came with a 2.5" heavy duty OME lift which is intended for a
vehicle with a winch and winch bar on the front and long range tank and
tyre carrier on the back - without these it gives a very harsh ride (my
7month pregnant wife hates it!!) - The only time we get the full
benefit is when fully laden going for family holidays.
