You think this is a lot of lift for 35's?
I would not do 35's with less lift. I want my suspension to do the work. Even as it sits I need to add more bumpstop. I drove the left front tire up into the bottom of the fender hard enough to destroy the flare. Had to straighten the fender with a rubber mallet. Without the bodylift I would be adding 2"+ of bumpstop and I just don't see the sense in removing that much articulation/movement from the system. Blaine and I spent a lot of time dialing this thing in and it flat works.
I know LCG is the hot thing but not for me. Look at that picture again and imagine the space between the tire and flare without the bodylift.
The axle is moved maybe an inch rearward but Blaine and I did that when I had 33's. Now with the 35's it needs to go forward a little as I rub the back part of the flare/fender. Blaine does not measure control arms and I honestly don't know how long they are, what I do know is the 33" wheel/tire did not rub anywhere. I used to call BS on Blaine not knowing how long the currie control arms were on lifts that he installed but after working for the better part of a week with him, it's a fact. He does not use a tape measure.
No two of my control arms are adjusted to the same length. Think about that.....
