I know what you're thinking, installing a lift can already stretch most peoples abilities and you'd be right. This write up is for the hobbyist that has extensive automotive and machining knowledge with access to materials and machines.

The link below will give an overview of of the work done. Below that you will find additional details omitted from the video. If you seriously want to make some or all of these parts I can provide PDF, DXF or DWG electronic file upon request.



Recap:

  • 2 1/2" Front Spring Spacers and Bump Stops - Net 2 3/4" Lift
  • 1" Rear Spring Spacers and Bump Stops - Net 1 1/4" Lift
  • 2" Front Shock Extensions
  • No Rear Shock Extensions - Didn't Need Them
  • Extended the Front Sway Bar Links by 3"
  • Did Not Extend The Rear Sway Bar Links - Didn't Need To
