Body lift question

Post by HandofGod » Mon Oct 05, 2020 4:03 pm

Ok I want to confirm the size of my body lift please. This is a 3” body lift, not a 4”, correct?

I'm going to call it a 3" drop cause it's upside down. But either way, 3" with urethane mounts.

Yeah I don’t know why it’s upside down. Not that way on my phone... lol. Thank you. I’m gonna be getting new bumpers soon and just wanted to verify.

Its fine for me on my desktop. If the device doesn't support the image orientation meta data (mostly android devices) it may show up weird.

But yes, 3" body lift with the body mount on top of it.

Now that I think about it, it would be better with the mount on top of the lift leverage-wise. In a normally oriented picher.

The way it is now you have the body with 3" of leverage acting on the rubber.

I wonder if there's still a sleeve inside the mounts or are you supposed to just keep wrenching on it until you get tired. Maybe there is and that's why the spacer's on top.

I have no clue tbh if it is correctly oriented or not. Bought the wag like this. I will say the lift hasn’t caused any issues that I’m aware of the way it is.
