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

:shock: That's neat! are the axles angles ok?

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.

I put the car through its paces at a TSD this weekend, the suspension is definitely settled in now. Loaded up with all our gear, a full sized spare and a full tank of fuel the front sits about 1.25" above stock and the rear was only 0.5" above stock. For normal use I expect it'll be more level but I'll be adding another piece to the rear so it's level when prepped for an event.

Im digging it! I wanted a 1 to 1.5" lift on mine.

I still love it, I've since added another 0.5" spacer to the rear to try and cure the saggy butt it got from having a full sized spare and a trunk full of gear but I haven't driven it like that much. Eventually I'd like to make it easier to swap the lift in and out too, getting the struts assemblies in and out in the rear is really annoying (the front is a breeze)
