ST with 2" Lift- Need Overall Height

Anyone out there have a recently installed OME 2" lift and 33s or 285s on their ST that can tell me the overall height of their rig? My stock suspension is sagging and I know the 2" lift will end adding more than just 2" to my current height. I just need to make sure I can get mine back in the garage!!!

Gracias

Mine is not recent, but I have that combo (OME 2" and 285s) and it just fits on the garage. I stayed with the 285s because it wouldn't fit if I went to 35s. If you want me to measure mine I can.

Got any cheap parts?

LOL

I would be happy measure as well, but my lift includes rubber isolators, etc. that add about 0.5" Check out my earlier post and let me know if you want my height. My overall gain was approx 3.0 inches.

Thanks Paul, I saw your post last year. Please measure when you get a chance. It just seems like I have a midget garage (no offense to any midgets on this board) door.

Charles, I do have some jugs of used oil if you want them.

Dang it, SEE, there you go again! Now we have changed the subject. You are good my friend....

See that's my problem, my door opening is 81" and I think I am pretty close already. Thankfully I am in a rental and will be buying a house with a real garage this fall - so the lift might have to wait.

Good plan J. Just make sure if the garage door on the new house isn't tall enough already, that there is no structural reason you can't raise the door height. On my garage the headers are really high so I can raise mine without any structural changes - which was going to be my next rover mod until Janey came along . That too will need to wait for a while I think.

J. George,

Its a little tricky to measure with exact precision, but my 1997 ST appears to be 79.5" tall at the B pillar... That's with 285/75's at 38 psi, empty truck, OME "standard" 2" lift, 0.5" rubber isolators, etc.

But, I also have Hella 3000s, so for me it's another 3 inches when they are laying down. I dont enter a garage less than 7' without severe pucker factor...

Thanks Paul, At this point I am just going to have to wait until my new house and garage is built in August to install the lift.
