Upcountry springs and 2.25" spacers.....according to my before and after measurements its roughly 3.5"

my sliders make it appear lower to the ground since they stick down 2" from the rocker panels

also the camera angle on the picture


in this pic...front is pre-lift and rear is post-lift this is when i was halfway thru

If you're going to buy new coils at all, you might as well get coils that are the right length.

right now im in the process of finishing the hood and then im gonna move on to the fender(gonna fix the power antenna while im in there) and headlight/header panel

tomorrow afternoon im going to paint the green on the hood and hopefully lay some clear coat

tomorrow im also plannin on Herculining the rear bumper

anyone have a buffer i can borrow so i can wetsand and buff my clear coat on the hood?


i also still have some wobble in my steering wheel when i turn the wheel to the right slightly...it gets pretty bad sometimes so i have to figure it out
