    Have you considered a spacer plate between the shock and shock tower?

    Dose only apply to the back or dose the front ones change the height as well?

    I have looked into pretty pricey to pull the struts and then take them to the machine shop and have them make 30mm spacers then get new bolts for the strut.

    Was also looking at the coil over sleeves but I have no idea about those.

    Fronts are the same on FWD and AWD, unfortunately.

    I’m also building a 1g for the Gambler. Are you going to be at SIG this year? Also any update on this suspension lift? It’s difficult to find info on this, yet it has been done plenty of times.

    My bad I should have clarified. SIG is the Southern Indiana Gambler. It’s from Oct. 30-Nov.1 this year. That may be just what I have to do is say screw it and go haha
