With all the weight I carry I was finding the 701ís a little soft. The 899ís were great but I missed the down travel variable coils gave me. Attempted to mediate this with some poly spacers, but ended up going 749v when they came out and love them. I have a hybrid extended travel shock with 2Ē bump stop extensions and rarely bottom out.

I still prefer the predictability of a linear coil like the OME for on-road, but off-road you cant beat the travel of a variable rate.

The Dobinsons will ride tall when unloaded, where as a linear coil will just ride firmer (little tall, but within range). What this means is you may need to look at other components depending on your specific setup, like rear control arms to correct your pinion angle, longer sway bar links, etc, depending on typical ride height.

I admittedly went pretty tall with my build, probably running the 749vís on the lighter side, but when loaded up for a trip itís nice and level, which is how I like it.

For what itís worth, I sold my 899ís to a buddy with no rear bumper, just a drawer system and fridge, and he doesnít think theyíre too stiff. Your results may vary.

This is a great set of examples. Thanks for providing it.

My experiences with the Dobinson's variable rate coils (677v & 701v) is very similar to yours although I've never run the OME's. The Dobinson's coils do stand a bit tall unloaded but not negatively so.

I'll have to look more into the OME coils. Although I'm pretty happy with my current setup. Thanks
