Default 4" lift with coilovers

Why doesn't anyone make a proper 4" lift with coilovers? It would be nice to clear 35's and increase wheel travel while enhancing the ride. Any thoughts/ideas?

Psssst...the fronts are coil overs, they're just not adjustable.

I am talking about a longer coilover, not a spacer.

Something like Bds's new coilovers for their 6" lift but in a 4".

King or fox can make you coilovers in any length you want. Just get a 4" lift then order the coilovers seperately.

That is what I am looking for. I was just wondering if anyone had a kit with some options.

No one makes a 4" kit with coilovers. If that's what you want you will have to buy it seperately. I know kings are about $1700-$1800 for custom length with remote reservoirs.

Icon will also custom make you any length. I was considering going the 4" route with custom coil-overs myself. Overall expensive though.

Its about the same price for a 6inch setup as it is a 4inch so i think people say why not another 2 inches.

Meh. I decided against the 4" with coilovers because it was too tall. 6" would be even taller. But 4" or 6" isn't the question. The question is about getting coil-overs for one of the lifts. And it's totally do-able. Like I said I was talking to the Icon guys and the lead time was two weeks for custom made coil-overs. He just needed the specifications.

Say for example the Rancho 4" kit. With that kit you have to buy longer shocks anyway. So instead of buying the longer shocks Rancho sells, you could just order the Icons for not that much more money.

$320 for longer Rancho shocks $320 for longer Rancho shocks


Or

Icons are $1320

So for $1000 extra a person could have quality coilovers with their lift kit.
