Spacers added a good 1.5-2" in the front. I'm happy with it. Need to get my hands on a jack to do my blocks. 4.5" to 5" of lift makes 32s look a bit small. After I buy this bike Im going to start saving for 33" mtrs. Should look perfect on her also got new plates.

For those of you patient enough to follow my build, should I trim that lip off of my front fenders? I think it looks a little cleaner without it

I like the lip personally. And didn't you say they were 1.75" spacers?

Yes, but gains were near 2". It may go down a little bit when I do the rear. I don't know if I want to trim it or not lol

I don't see why'd you'd gain any more or less than 1.75" since its just a spacer. But I think the lip gives it character. No a full flare, but not flareless.

I was probably supposed to take out the small spacer in there, but I left it. I don't question it, lol
