Body Damage is Cool
Hi, I'm from the mitsu forum but couldn't help but put my 2 cents in...

cheap option as said above would be to frame stack but the would be...ya know redneck

IMO you should run a I don't know a 3" BJ spacer? Then have a 3" drop cradle with whatever springs you guys use for the 4" lift but with a 2" spacer.
Out back you could run 2-3" TJs but I would worry about those till you have a good plan for the front.

used to be... doubt it now... i e-mailed him about 10-12 years ago. he doesn't like me much... i told him his baja offroad adventures kit for making the sportage a class 3 racer was too expensive, but i didn't know the cage had to be chromo and tig welded and cost 5 grand...

honestly, i'd talk to Spidertrax or Total Chaos...

but we could do it...

it just takes so long to get ready to do something like this when you're broke...

sux...

agreed being broke sucks..i just got another rear axle for mine. repairs are killin me but you gotta fix it before u can break it. but back on track for the topic i was looking at the rear and i have some 6in skyjacker bronco II lift springs that look like they would fit and give it 8in or so of lift. but the arms will have to be extended at that height the axle it pushed forward way to much. so im gonna make a set of extended rear arms . which leads to needing an extended brake softline and e-brake cables.

Roll Me Over
*
Just drove past an old toyota with this modified front suspension (IFS) today.......it was like an 8 inch susp lift <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />


We can do this setup on ours prolly, but we need the producer as well as info on springs,susp parts, struts etc......If I am not mistaken..

I am willing to do this regarding higher lift if it is at all possible!?!?!!!


...There may be a light at the end of the tunnel after all... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cheers.gif" alt="" />


What say y'all?
