Who here has done it, and what kit did you use?
I ordered my kit from suspension maxx. I talked to several shops who told me they didn't know of a product that would lift the rear and keep the auto ride intact. Larry at suspension maxx was easy to deal with and knew exactly what I needed.
It's scheduled to arrive via UPS today.
I have an SLT with autoride, but no magneride.
I plan to install it today or tomorrow.
Let us know how that goes and pics are always appreciated.
Yes, please!! Also, do you know which kit you went with?
2.5" Front - SMXGM725
2" Autoride Rear - SMX15200M
Rear Shock extender - SMXHDSKEX
Currently, my front fender is 36" off the ground and my rear quarter is 37". I'm hoping this combination will decrease the rake to .5"
I want it to look level or very slightly higher in the back.
Thanks Tregs. I just did a 2.5/1.5 from Summit Performance on my Sub with autoride this weekend and it came out 37.5 and 38.25. no problems with autoride and it only cost 82 bucks.
I finished mine this weekend too, but you got off cheaper than I did.
I went with the 2.5" / 2" from suspension maxx. I also installed the rear shock extenders and autoride brackets. The rear was more involved than I thought, but nothing terrible.
My front is now at 38.75"and the rear is 39.25"
Im happy with it and the CV angles aren't as bad as I imagined. The ride is as good as stock from what I can tell.
I took it to the alignment shop today and they trued it with no problems. It drives straight and tight.
Nice report and post pics!
Fabtech 4" basic kit with an additional 1/2" up front, and Magnetic ride brackets, rear sits 1.5" higher, but dead level with a trailer. 201x10's with 33x12.5.
What are your fender measurements?
