Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

"Notes: Provides approximately 3.5" of lift in the front and 2" in the rear for a nice level stance."

It definitely lives up to it's notes.

I heard different from other WK owners with the RK lift. What are your before and after hub to fender measurements?

And what size tires are those? I think I got more lift than you because my fender gaps are larger.

Edit: Ok. I just saw it in your sig up top. Yeah. I think I definatley got more lift than you. Those are 32" tires right?

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

I would definitely be interested to see how the measurements come out. I have never acutally measured it because I was satisfied with the look it acheived and the ride quality. Wouldn't be a bad thing to know exactly how it stands up to others.

I will measure tonight when I get home from work and let you know.

The tires are 265/70/17. What is your setup?

It looks good man. It really does. I'm not bashing your ride. I like it. I'm just saying that people I've talked with on forums when I was shopping for a lift said I would get more lift with the OME kit and that RK doesn't give 3.5"

You don't have to measure if you don't want to. Your ride looks good.

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

Sounds good tho for the money. Even if it isn't as much lift as other 3.5's or 3's. I just can't make up my mind on what I want to do either. (same as OP)

Re: What lift/tire size to go with?????

I would try and get the RRO lift but the costumer reviews are pretty bad.

The only thing is poly spacer though. I don't know if I'd trust them like AcidCold has stated.

Would this work?

OME springs with MLL 643s in the rear and Bilsteins in the front?

anyone know specifications in terms of height for Bilsteins, MLLs and Nitros in the rear? along with the height specifications for Bilsteins and OME struts in the front?

wondering if it will be any higher of a lift than straight OME all around.
