Oh nice. What's the height of the front bumper? This is with stock shocks and springs?

This is all with the stock springs + struts + the 1" spacers on top. I haven't taken any measurements yet but I will once I've settled the suspension. Measurements off a stock GTFour are 14.25" from the center of the hub to the fender lip directly above, so I'm expecting 15.25" with the spacers. That gives you a true ride height to compare to without things like variance in tire diameter affecting it.

The axles looked fine when I was assembling everything but we'll see if there's any funny noises once it's on the road. I imagine they'll be fine as Toyota made these cars tough as nails and my Jeep that also has IFS has a 2.5" lift and the CVs are fine.

Looks so good, and I imagine it'll do very well. Now take those mudflaps off and throw some dirt :evil:

I snapped a picture of the CV angle up front, it looks pretty tame to me.
