Hi lift 2

Up-rated my suspension over the past few weekends. Didn't have a ramp to check out the axle articulation so I hit on this cunning plan

Suspension is +2" all round with decarbon +2" shocks up front, +1"at the rear with the rear top shock mounts dropped by 2". the rear radius arms are kinked and strengthened. Rear springs are Range Rover police spec rears and the fronts are second hand and unidentifiable but they give just the right amount of lift. Yes, the highlift is balanced on a block of wood, but the axle still wasn't on the bump stop, it had another 4" of compression left. The rear wheel was 24" off the ground so all in all I'm well pleased.

Nice, but I like to just drive up onto what evers around, it's easier (sorry no incriminating pics).

It's rather flat here and neighbours get cross if I drive on their cars.

You are a brave man Mike, even if you had the highlift balanced

LMAO!

Sounds like the current sentence I am serving - Life in Illinois with possibility of parole in the next 3-5. Sweet Home Chicago!

Kinda fixed your link and heres your pic. The only way to show pics is to upload them as an attachment, the Image tag code does not work. If you are still not sure on how to post a pic check out the Sharpen those skills area. PS that's what I'm talking about!
