Bmacd looks nice, what size lift did you go with?
Prothane, 2" coil spacers, $120.00 from Amazon w/$3.99 overnight shipping.
Front is 2" spacer plus OEM spacer to take some of the rake out and 2 rear.

Need to order some longer shocks tonight.

This is not a body lift.
These are the oem supports...

This what a body lift looks like:



You can see the oem support and the puck on top with the new bolts...

Well look at that. Now I'm all kinda of confused lol. So I don't have spacers in my coil springs, is it possible they are longer than standard coils?

Your coils do look tight, maybe they're aftermarket, just like your shocks...
Also some people put Rubi or Unlimited coils on their 2-door and they get some lift...

I looked again at yours and they're much tighter...
Yours seems to be aftermarket.

Yours:



These are OEM coils:





10-4.

No complaints, i would have bought duratracs if they had 37s, but so far so good, i like the falkens, i'll let you know during winter when the snow comes up in the sierras. in angeles forest i lowered psi to 14 psi and road like a dream.
