I know I'll probably get flamed for adding a body lift but I needed a little more clearance for my new 38ís. I had already trimmed the pinch seam off the back fender, was hitting the grill on the front at full stuff/full lock, and I didnít want to add more bump stop. So, I decided a body lift was a cheap and easy solution.
I ordered the 1.25Ē RC kit off of Amazon (FYI, RC doesnít offer free shipping with Amazon PrimeÖ) and although the box showed up completely destroyed and taped back together (not RCís fault) nothing was missing.
The instructions were clear and complete. I followed them pretty much word-for-word on the first side and didnít need them by the time I got to the other side. It took me and a buddy (he wasnít very mechanically inclined) right at two and a half hours to get it completed. The only some-what special tool needed is a 16mm socket. I had to search through three different socket sets before I finally found one in my impact set Ė evidently, thatís not a common size. Itíd really suck if you were already to get started only to figure out your handy-dandy Craftsman set doesnít have that sizeÖ
Overall, Iím impressed with the kit (although itíd be hard not to be impressed with a bunch of injected plastic). It was as easy to install as the instructions said it would be. If you need just a little extra lift it might be worth considering. Sorry, no pics.
