Graham there are a lot of opsions out there but......
You need to compansate for the weight of winch and bulbar.....
You need to realise that in Aus they have redesigned syspensions for patrols over and over .....
Stick to iron man ome or dobinson and get meduim coils with airbags at the back ....go 2 inch with caster correctsion and you will be sharp....
