Thanks for posting that up. I checked when the wife got home, I didn't realize that they were that much different.

frogstar, do you have a drawing of the front or can you post what the bolt circle is?

I'll have to dig it up but I got all the dimensions written down here somewhere.
Will find it tomorrow and post it up for you.

Default Specs

This is what I came up with when I did my lift.
I used a 6mm offset but if I did it again I'd go 7mm.

That's great, thanks!
2 questions.
Is the 7 mm offset the same for front and rear?
And, is the offset to the outside or the inside of the strut?
Also, I take it as a given that the measurements are in Imperial (inches).

Measurements are in inches (I am a Yank after all) and you offset the struts in.

Nice drawing!!! SolidWorks?

Just make sure that the folks in the machine shop let you 'help' out when they are cutting those.

Thanks for that. In the photos, the rear strut tops don't appear to be offset. Is that right? or is it just the angle of the photo?
