Nisstec MKIII 3" kit installed and feels great.. I lost the little rake I had in the back. The front end is a lot taller than before.. and a little taller than the rear..
I have one more shackle level to place higher..if the shrockworks full bumper doesn't bring the front end down just a tad..
But overall I'm very pleased.. looks great and drives great.

There is not much of a difference between your front and rear height.
How much stiffer is your rear suspension? Switching from 3+1 leafs to a full 6 leafs is probably enough to remove your rear sway bar to improve flex without being to wobbly.

To be honest.. I thought the ride would be stiffer. - a little more solid... but its actually not.. Not sure how adjustable the shocks are...aside from height..
I do have a knock when I turn at times in the rear.. it was there before this install..
But overall.. I find it very good..I think I would have preferred a more rigid ride..

For a QC '07 you have surprisingly little rust. Great rustproofing. My rear fender wells are showing rust now... :(
Hey thanks.....my 2002 was even better...sold it in 2010..it looked brand new..bought it new
.and rust proofed annually...this '07 has skipped a year or two...but I do have rust in the rear door frames interior....
I did do a lot of repair too a few years ago...has stood up well...

Great pictures! What camera did you use ?
Thank you...
Well believe it or not.. I had to go back and check the exif file because I couldn't remember. Looking back.. I recalled my main camera a Canon 5D original was with me but I didn't use it.. battery was dead even though they got charged..weird

anyhow.. so what you see here are pics with my Samsung phone S21... of course enhancements on PS5..
and I believe some of with my Go Pro 5 or 7..not sure which one I brought with me this day...
but 99% of my photos you see on my gallery or posts, are with my Canon 5D mark III 24-105L lens or 16-35L 2.8 lens
Just to say.. phone cams have a come a long way...the dynamic range of my phone.. (meaning proper exposure for sky and ground).. is better than my Canon...but I still prefer a nice dslr.

They definitely look great. I was thinking a dslr but great pics for a phone, enhancement and all.
