Since it's been too long without pics, and thanks to Syndicate for saving my pic-illiterate butt, here's a sampling of shots from during the install, which is not finished. The rear shocks are too long; at 10" they limit travel. So King is making a shock for this lift that solves the problem.The configurations you see here, front included, are changing slightly, as Spencer tweaks the Lightracing jounce shocks (hydraulic bump stops), bracketry, etc. The rear springs, a full replacement Deaver pack, is being replaced for something with more arc and beef.
Hannemann is making fiberglass fenders, which are being installed right now. Spencer trimmed the stock fenders you see in these pics.
I had the X back for a week, and it rode great. The on road handling was excellent. It's designed to be able to wheel hard in the desert loaded with camping and recovery gear. All the rates and ride height are being tweaked these next two weeks.
The wheels are 16x8 Pro Comp forged alloys. They needed 3/4" spacers and some machining. Spencer swears they're bullet-proof. The tires are BFG M/Ts, 285 75 16s. Overall, the front track width is an extra 4 inches a side. The axle half-shafts are 2.5" longer, plus wheels and spacers.
Spencer is about to put out a catalogue of lifts he's offering. It will be ready to post here soon. I'll have a bunch of detailed specs shortly. And maybe this should all be moved to "Projects," but I thought I'd start here since there have been so many posts on SLR and off in the "Suspension" category.
