    ADTR Coil Over Kit ?

    Does anyone have experience with the ADTR coil over system ? - especially the stock height kit that also replaces the rear air suspension with coil springs.

    All opinions, comments, criticisms welcome. Except personal stuff. I don't care if you don't like my chili.

    Thanks in advance -

    No experience with the kit, but I personally wouldn't replace the air bags with springs. The bags are part of what makes the Marauder special.

    What's so special about your chili recipe? I'm intrigued.

    ARTR is a good choice as well as Viking. Keeping the rear air system is a plus.

    I appreciate the comments about keepimg the rear air suspension. I was leaning in that direction. In the process of getting the car shaped up, I'm evaluating a lot of things just because almost everything on the car is 20+ years old and I'd like to head off any problems, even though the miles are low (52k ).

    At this point in its life, I'd look into belts and hoses if you aren't already. Wear items and such.

    Keep the bags.... I've become an air suspension expert if you can't get it working.

    Iíve got the ADTR Ridetech coilover kit for the front and kept the air ride in the back. Itís the best of both worlds. Iíve been very happy with it. Fully adjustable to set the height where you want it, and if I remember correctly the piston in the shocks are about 25% bigger than stock, so you get a great ride even if you have it set low.

    I just replaced the bags on my MM a couple months ago. 185k on them and they finally gave out. Replaced them with Suncore brand I got off Ebay for $75; haven't had any issues so far.

    I have ADTR Ridetech front and rear coilover kit, I was able to get the lowered ride height I was looking for and very happy with the overall ride quality.

    The air ride was working fine so I kept it. Just needed to replace the ride height parts. Everything else is working fine.

    The ADTR coilover kit that keeps the stock height and air ride will probably be the next thing I do.
