My wife and I like mine. I made it myself. It lifted the front 2", and I just turned up the rear spring preload. It allowed me to set the front preload on the next to the softest setting.

I tried to post pics, but the files are too large.

What did you make the lift out of ? Is that piece of channel iron? How much angle did it ad to your cv shafts? When you changed the tension on the rear shocks did it lift the rear ? It looks like something I might want to do to mine. My 27 get close to rubbing .

One of my friends bought one of these kits on ebay. The rear part of the kit was junk. However, the front part was pretty good. I just copied his. I made one for me and one for his dad. I made them from 2" square tubing, with 1/4" wall. And yeah, I just increased the rear preload to raise it. I can't remember, but I think I have 12" of clearance in the center.

This also allowed me to set the preload on the front softer, remove the anti-sway bar, and it rides pretty smooth.

I have the print for the lift at work. If you want, I can scan it tomorrow. It's not complex at all.
