You are spot on however the lift does not increase the clearance for any part apart from top of front tyre to the lower spring mount. 245/70 or 265/65 both fit with or without the lift, any larger requires trimming of metal or plastic to fit.

RRO and all others are interested in a 2+ in lift they can sell for hundreds or thousands of dollars. They are not interested in this style of lift as there is not enough money in it.

This is simply increasing the ride height of the rear by 2 x 3/8 in spacers (one above and one below) and reloacting the position of the front strut in the knuckle. All dreamed up in Valpacers garage using bits he had in the shed.

Total net lift is around 30mm or 1.25 in, plus anouther 12mm or 1/2 in from larger tyres. Not enough for the likes of RRO or ARB etc. And its acheived with $50 of parts...

RRO is wrong... it can be done, but they don't feel they can make enough money off of lifting these. It uses spacers to raise up the rear springs, and the front is as simple as moving the strut in the mounting bracket. Took me and a buddy less than 2 hours to do.

When I first put the lift on, I could definitely tell it was taller... when you get in, you have to sit up a touch higher... your view out the windshield is a bit taller, and the tennis balls hanging in my garage hit early now.

Aside from that, I really cannot tell they are on there... Driving characteristics are still the same... I still drive as aggressively as before... you can hear the tires ever so slightly with the radio and air off around 35-45 mpg, but then it goes away. They might slow my acceleration down a touch, but that is probably just my imagination... which brings me to my next answer.

I did get larger tires. I have tires that are basically 1.1" taller and 1.1" wider (265/65R17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac). They are the "largest" (maxing out width and height) tire you can put on without trimming plastic and metal. You can go with a slightly taller tire the same width as the stock tire (245/70R17) without rubbing as well, but if you add the width it won't fit without grinding. Supposedly you can fit upwards of 31" - 32" tires if you remove the plastic wheel liner, grind the metal pinchweld, and (possibly unnecessary) add wheel spacers (different than the spring spacers that lift the vehicle, these would push your wheels out from the hub).


Sorry for such a long answer... I just got forum access back for my computer and remembered how much easier it is to type with 10 digits instead of just thumbs...
