here goes nothing

in a last attempt, having a buddy come over with some beer tomorrow and we're gonna do everything it takes to get these springs and blocks in. rented the spring compressors from autozone just now, so hopefully once everything in disconnected we wont have to use it, but got it just in case. wish me luck!

and for Liftmeister stickers!
i'm guessing that it is now the official name of the kit?

Install took 5 hours going at it solo, except for having the local offroad shop compress and install the spacers and new struts up front. I like it alot so far. Will add some better info tomorrow when not exhausted

No alignment yet. No place was open when I finished, but it actually drove really well. I am putting tires and rims on tonight. 1.3 inch adapters to a 6x5.5 pattern. Then 17x8 Eagle Offroad Alloy's with 265/70/17 Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors. Then Wednesday I will get it aligned. I need to take measurements again, but the original measured about 33 in the front and 34 in the rear and quicky measurment yesterday showed 35 in rear and 36 in front. I will measure again before tires get put on.

I used new Bilstiens front and rear and the truck rides a lot better and feels better even without the alignment.

Thanks again Mark.

Glad you got it all together!!
rides like a whole different truck now rite???
When you get the tires on, bounce the front end a couple times or
drive it before you measure...
The TB we did for bentcougar last weekend at MORA came to around 2.7/8"
of lift.
hmmm,,,You should be 1" higher in the rear with the kit...



Come on Voltage,, get the lead out..lol..
i like your new pinstripe..

Drove 100 miles and measured 36 in front and 35 in rear. Dont know why only got an inch in the rear, but just over 2.75 front. Here is the view of side after lift with stockers still on



Her is after 265-75-17 on 17x8's. Got a lot of rubbing and will have to trim front bumper, molding under doors and prolly remove most if not all inner fender. Any one got any advice before I put it under the knife tomorrow?




Camera angles are weird, but it does sit higher in the front. I will drop the rear end back down and see if that situates things better so it levels up.

I would love some advice on trimming the fenders.

I just paid the PayPal invoice. I'm looking forward to getting the extra lift so I don't crest out on the dunes so much. Thanks to all the pioneers who took the plunge and provided so much useful information to us latecomers. I can't wait to get my mods finished and change my avatar.
