Re: Would this work?
yea. Rob is using OME HD springs, struts, and shocks and also kept the entire 2" rear poly spacer from his daystar in. he has a tiny bit of a raked look.. but it looks good on a higher lift like that. Ideally, I would like to be at 22" all around. I was going to throw bilstein HDs in the front and 643 Mlls in the rear, but I have a 4.7L and with the rear already being at 21 and the front at 20.75 (i attribute the 1/4" less to the 4.7 as opposed to 3.7L).. i think doing the 643's would leave me with too much rake in the rear. For that reason I was thinking of going with the direct replacement 646s... but if I ever want to upgrade, those wont be long enough to pair with OME springs.
Does anyone know the factory measurements center hub to fender on a 4.7L WK?? itd be nice to know so I can gauge off of that.
I just dont want to end up with more than 1/2" of rake. bc the front fender is optically taller.. the half inch of rake is okay with me if it needs to be.. but I wouldnt want anymore than that.. I dont know if i can get away with the 643s. I'd say the best for me to do would be put bilsteins up front.. measure.. and decide if i want 646s or 643s.. but I would be paying for install and wanna do it all at once.
