Okay so I see the photo someone drew up for a 2" rear suspension lift. Is it pretty much the same concept angle wize for th 4" brase? Ive studyed sjr's 4" rear lift brase, look like a 45 degree angles, is that right? And it's 4" from top bolt holes, to bottem bolt holes?


Thanks.

Okay got all that figured out, but how much does the lift change the rear camber? I've got 3" on the frame and 4" on the struts.

Thanks

Mk... So I've come to the conclusion that in order to not change the rear camber, the diff has to be dropped the same 4" as the struts.

Dropping the rear diff shouldn't change the camber. Lifting it shouldn't change the rear camber either as long as its properly done. My rear blocks are at roughly 15-20 degrees and whatever lift you want is measure from center of the bolt holes. Chamber is adjusted at the trailing arm, not the shock location(unlike the front).

Hope it helps
