    pajerokid::: As far as I could remember, Mike of RATS told me there is an alternative way to raise springs by adding metal spacers inbetween the coils, not above or beneath it. It will be machined locally and to think they don't have OME spacers. :D

    ARB::: Do you have a shop that specializes in suspension settings :?:

    Poly / Rubber spacers and those metal inserts for the coil spring will definitely limit your suspension travel. While the vehicle might ride higher, ride characteristics may be harsher.

    Its your choice, looks or performance? Form or substance? Man or mouse (rat)? Offroader or poser? Real deal or wannabe?

    Of course, if one has a tight budget - that's a different story.

    Happy trails!

    ungas::: balak ko sana i-lift uli yung harap via torsion adjust, but with the corresonding lift na ren sa likod. The way things are set-up now, if adjust the t-bars in front, papantay sya sa likod, which looks a bit ungainly...


    pre check your pm :mrgreen:

    sir i certainly hope youre not implying anything here. Being many many years my senior i hope you show a bit more tact....
    I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt since we are not talking face to face.

    as my mom always says "You cant put too much stock in good breeding", dont you agree?

    ungas actually i dont have a shop and im in the province here sa south(diff islands). but i am sure that you can have those packers maufactured there with your specs. we had once put a two inch packer on a kia sportage in the front to even the car out and it worked fine, no handling difficulties. we installed 235 tires without problems. also we have here one with three inch lift na sportage with 31x10.5 tires, but this proved way too much for the cv joints rubber. you can fashion out the packers with the design by OME.

    as for this kind of lift, the suspension travel is limited only by the length of your shocks. so why would OME make packers if it poses a difficulty or problems with the vehicle?

    also be sure to buy caster correct bushings for the front arms if you intend to lift it.
