Looks real good man. Been following you on the other forum. I've been waiting a few weeks now for Subtle, they said they'd have a rear sub align kit out for June. I have their 1" now and debating going up to a tad over 1.5" or doing this 2" kit. The 2" scares me a bit knowing that everything up front will be maxed out.

Hey metalmania! I've put over 6K miles on the kit already, so far so good.

Here's some shots from me messing around at the shop:

Nice, how high did you lift that front right wheel before any other wheel left the ground ?

I was able to go 36 cm, or about 14".

Looks good, and a terrific write up M1.

I've made the thread a sticky.

Thank you! I really appreciate it. I'll keep updating this thread whenever I mess with the suspension.
