Coil-overs vs standard setup

What benefit is there to doing coil over shocks on your truck vs a standard coil and separate shock?

I believe the biggest benefit is the ability to fine tune your suspension. You can lift/lower it slightly and adjust the ride quickly.

Yep.......some adjustability in the lift but shock valving adjustability the same either way.
You can get more travel without a coilover sometimes...

I read on another forum, that they make the suspension more of a sporty suspension, better for cornering, not that Im planning to do hot laps on the Nurburgring, but thought it would make the truck feel more stable on the road, cause I do have a bit of a lead foot.

My thought on coilover are the following

1. Look awesome
2. Allow Suspension Ride Height Adjustment
3. Some have compression adjust with will soften or stiffen ride
4. Allows the coil and shock to be one assembly which usually will open up a spot for a secondary shock both for looks and performance.
