It was hard finding this thread again, and it took me a few days to actually get out, move the Hatch and pull out the measuring tape.
14.25" of diff clearance. This is with 3" lift, 28" Superswampers, EA82 adjustable rear shocks and the torsion bar racheted.

Yeah - I think what I need to do is actually ratchet up the torsion bar. Right now, the stuts are just in there - compressed to fit. I thought you said you had more clearance than Ken? What did he change to get that much clearance from a PK style block lift?

I do have more. 1/8in isnt much, and he can probably get more by taking some of the stuff out of the back:D

Yeah - I looked back at it, and I see that I read it wrong. I'm still 3/4" away from you. What setting are your rear struts on? I'm on the softest setting on my wagon....

My guess is that your torsion bar isn't ratcheted up at all actually - mine isn't, and neither is the Bugaru's hatch - we just compressed the struts into position, and bolted em on..... the reason I'm only 3/4" from you is that my tires are bigger - so I'm close even though my struts are on the lowest setting. I'm guessing that maybe Brat's torsion bars are indeed set differently from the factory....
