Didn't use a tape, it was 10:30 at night, just eyeballed it. It looked over 1000, if it wasn't it was pretty close

Decided to tackle the rear trackbar mount today Burned in Mounted. Rear Roll center raised roughly 6" Getting ready to take it for a test drive here shortly and see how she handles through the corners



Also noticed a significant correction in my passenger side lean. It's still there, but much more minor than before

so a very interesting driving result. the rear feels like its on rails and tracks flat and true through corners like it never has before, all the while the front is still lollygagging around. i'll hit a dip in the road on the passenger and the front suspension will want to articulate and try and drag the body with it, and then when it transitions to the rear the rear just rolls through it like its nothing.

i cant wait to get the front done. i need to order the insert for the knuckle and the drill bit and i'll be good to go. i even have some left over DOM for notching the frame to clear the drag link

And since I've been reading on suspensions for awhile, now, I know what most of those words mean. Now hurry up and get the stuff for the front.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

May be an issue as well with less than 3"s of bump-stop. This is with 3"s exactly.

Did you miss the part about me notching the frame and adding 2" bump stops to the front?

No more than 3/4 of an inch with a 2" bump stop. That isn't that big

If I could get a 3/4" insert I could use a bit that I already have
