im gonna max out the t-bars in the front but idk if it will meet the back height, thats really high! i have a 3 inch BL sitting at home, so with the suspension up high like this and the BL on im probably gonna be up to 5-6 inches up front and 6-7 in the back over stock.

Thats up there man. Have you taken it out driving for a bit? My 93 had them and it cranked the ass end up. When I drove it over bumpy roads I thought I would be pissing blood for a couple days after

i have driven it probably about 100 miles or close to it, including putting a 400 pound street bike in it to deliver it to the guy who i sold it to 35 miles away... still way up there. looks goofy lol, i gotta get the front up some more asap. might try after work tomorrow. i didnt realize how much it went up in the back till i looked at the pics side by side. but the drivers side leaf spring snapped the second leaf so it was a bit low.

I wonder why they snapped?





Cool deal man! Definitely do need to crank the T-bars, I hate the "raked" look.

its a 4x4 cant do that. or i would, it would be nice to do a spindle lift and not crank the t-bars.

yeah the old spring had a lot of rust from where it had been cracked for a while im assuming, it snapped 4 wheeling at the nor cal meet lol scared the piss out of me.

how stiff is the rear end over bumps, i kno my brother did the same thing with his ranger and he said screw this because the ride was miserable, and pulled them out and bought new stock ones.

why dont you take the AAL out, its still going to be up there, and a t bar crank might level it out. You could sell the AAL on here, im sure someone would buy them
