I bought my Eibach's way back in about June of 2000. They don't make them any more but I can make you spacers for about a 2 1/2" lift, email me at (upyourkia@yahoo.com)

Ok.. So you can lift the car even 4" but:

1. what about the rear axle, would it not be under the wrong angle?
2. front half shafts, the same, if I make 2"extension on the strut my half shafts will be under the angle that could damage them.
3. drive shafts, not to short?

please give me answeres. I have already ordered higher springs, made on request.. and I have extensions for the struts ready, waiting for the springs to come...

should I be worried? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/baby.gif" alt="" />

The rear axle will be off set a little, I have about 120,000 miles on my lift with no problems though. I still have the original C-V axles also. With 4 inches of lift I can't go down the freeway and 75 MPH with the hubs lock in, they start to vibrate about 45 or 50 but with all the wheelin Iv'e done they have held up well. If you look at your C-V axles stock the center line of the dif is lower than the center line of the hub. With a 2" lift the axles are at the same angle, just reversed. So in theory a 4" lift only increases the angle of a 2" lift. I have not had any problem with the rear drive shaft, with a 104" wheel base they are long enough.

Hope this helps, Dennis
