Just the angle of photo.
(I should have took more and better photos but once I get going in the garage I forget about the camera)
6mm offset fronts and rears.

Any drawings for the outline of the lift? Or could I just go like 3/4" off the bolt and do straight sides?

Also if you can do a 2 in strut lift and a 1" Spring lift is there a problem with just doing a 3" strut lift instead of both? What do you lose?

I know if you go much more than 2" for the strut lift your asking for CV troubles. Add a 1" spring lift and you might have similar results, but I'm not sure. I think Kevin has strut and spring lift so he might be able to answer better, but I believe his strut lift is only 40mm (1.57").

Good point well I guess Ill just have to be thrilled with the 2 in lift. I wouldnt want to put too much strain on the CV joints since I do drive alot.

Here is my Prelim drawings. I am going to print them out at full scale to make sure the holes match up right but what you guys think? btw anyone who uses these drawings is using them at their own risk

They look pretty good. You might want to make the stud holes a bit smaller, 8mm screw measures about .310" so like yelnats_j's drawing has them at .3218", this will depend on what type of fastener you use too. If you used a press in (splined) stud it may need to be a bit larger. Remember you won't be able to get a wrench on the bottom of the top plate so they have to be secured in the plate somehow. The dimensions on the lower left side of the front plate look a bit cluttered and unnecessary, but that would be me complaining if I was trying to make it.

I threaded my top plates and tack welded the head of the bolt once it was on lift block.
