parts used, money spent........ possible pinched brake lines, and possible spring pop outs...................
and that is the difference between a coil under and a coil over

Its better to have coil over spring on top than coil under spring on bottom for many reasons you can put bigger cylinders in back and higher lift spring wont pop out on 3 wheels and ride is about same but you can go faster with nothing to worry about ;)
