Well, after sucking down a few cold ones with Clayboy this past weekend he has gottem me convinced that I should just lift the front of my rhino. After looking at what they consist of I just want to make my own. But, I need a few measurements from some of you that have lift kits. I liked the way Clayboy sits so, brother if you could chime in on some measurements and hook a brother up. On the next ride we'll have to try and get you off of those cold mountains and get you on the horse Clydesdales that is..........Anyway, what I need is the factory shock mount location and then the lift lit shock mount location. I want horizontal and vertical measurements.

Clayboy,
One more quick question, How wide is the material? Looks like maybe 2 inches or a little wider.

Clayboy,
Well, I got my lift kit made, but I am not to crazy about it. It has a lot of positive camber now, and my tie rods and ball joints are at angles that would cause them to wear out quickly. If you can when you have time could you post a pic of the front of yours and your balljoint angles? It raised it up about 2.5 inches and looks good. But I am just worried about wearing stuff out prematurely.

Thanks! Chug

2.5" sounds about right. That's what I picked up.

Well, it is lifted. Still have a little bit of positive camber. I don't know if that is enough to worry about though.
Looking at it looks like my control arms have a steeper angle than yours.

I'd losen the pre-load on those rezzies to acheieve some sag, then the camber will go-away.
