    Yes, with the spacing I thought it was actually more then that when I did some tests, but either way it does seem to articulate and hang down well in the rear. Have extended the SB links also. I think I just need to decide if I change out the rear springs to get the height down a little..

    Jeremy,
    Questions on your strut spacers - What's the reason for spacing out the bump stop? Is it to a avoid the shock reaching max compression before the bump stop hits? Did you space it at 6mm to match the strut spacer?

    Can you recall the brand of strut spacer you used?

    I want to add a winch soon which will add to my front sag issue and thinking a strut spacer may be an option..

    Cheers
    Luke

    Hi Luke, exactly spacing the bump stop reduces the chance of the shock bottoming out first. Can't remember exactly was around 4 to 5mm, not much. The bump stop is closer to the pivot point and therefore travels less distance.
    I got the spacers from 4WD1 at Castle Hill, they were about the only people who sold thin spacers. Most companies sell 10mm spacer which gives 20mm lift.
    Installing the spacers only look about 40min all up. Very easy.
