Stock & Lifted guys.... I need your measurements for R&D Project.
Hey guys. As some of you know, im working with (canttellyawhoyet) on a 3.5-4" kit for our WK2s. After some tweaking lately, Ive found that this is entirely doable. No debating on this thread though please. Simply need some measurements from some of you that can take the time. Id appreciate it. Please list it in the following format.
Factory tow pkg yes/no.
Stock or lifted (if lifted, explain)
Measurements. To keep this uniform, what I am looking for is specific. The Jeep needs to be jacked up allowing the wheels to be at full droop. In the front I want you to measure from the very top of the strut (where it attaches to the tower) to the middle of the bolt at the very bottom of the strut. Be as accurate as you can. If you have RRO spacers, I still want the very top measurement as the spacer is an extension of the strut assembly in this instance. On the rear, same thing. I found its easiest to do with flexible measuring tape like the one you use to measure your giant biceps.
**Not interested in measurements if you have your sway bars disconnected.
Thanks a ton guys! We're already hard at work and I plan to have a fully functional prototype by November and hopefully a production run ready by the end of the year.
In my case:
Lifted by (F) RRO 2.5 + Bilstein 5100s at 1.5 & (R) RRO Spacer + static Bilstein 5100s + 3/4" RRO Spacer
Front Measurement 35.5"
Rear Measurement 34.75"
This was achieved by using a flexible tape string at the very top mounting point of the strut, and then as straight down along the strut as possible to the middle of the bolt that attaches at the fork of the bottom of the strut.
