Whats Better Coil or Coilover?

Whats better like a rize lift with just the regular coil springs and good shocks, like fox, king, bilstien. Or upgrade to a coil over lift? I do mainly street driving with towing on the weekends, and light off road, like going wheeling in a field or maybe the sand every once and a while. Also for just doing that is it worth the extra money for the coilovers?

Coilovers give you more adjustability and the springs used on coilovers can handle the abuse of severe use better.

Depending on the size of lift, the downside of coilovers is that you may get less wheel travel with a coilover than you would with a coil spring and shock due to the physical dimensions of the coilover itself.



Hope this helps.

for street driving there really isn't any benefit to a coilover. They look cooler, but you're not going to gain anything.
