    I did a back-step on the site. Could be some copyright issues with it, but do what you want with.

    Could take up to 5min to load off the server, keep an open connection. Music, whatever.

    Found a solution for a lift kit. My friends and I installed a 2" lift kit (between 2-2.5"). For the back we used some 3" wide firehose connectors. Fit right in under the coil spring. And for the front we bought some 5" wide PVC pipe and some grade 8 bolts. Cut the PVC pipe into 2" length and stuck it above the whole front coil spring and strut assembly and bolted the two together. Drove on the highway, hit some hard bumps and seems to be working. Total cost about 35$. I'll post pictures later
    Got about 10" of ground clearance at the lowest spot with regular 21" winter car tires. Front number is 15" from the ground

    It's got a little positive camber going on. I will try and post pictures later today. Seems to drive fine tho. Gonna expect a bit more wear on the tires tho.
