I want to get a 2" lift for my 88 GL if anyone one can't point me to one or has one for sale I might be interested.

I've heard good things about SJR lifts and as far as I know he's still selling him. He has anywhere from 2-9 inch lift kits available and can custom make anything in between!

I was going to hold off on doing this but, I guess I could get a pre order going.

I just got my parts back from the machine shop. I've got 2" ea82 lift kits, which includes 2" strut towers, 2" rear reinforced shock tower and hardware. Price is 160$ a kit. Plus shipping

I will openly admit I offer a life time warrenty on the kit it self. As I know all of my parts are built for over kill.

I'm currently at least a week out of having these done. Pm me if your interested.

My goal is to bring a strong, safe, reliable lift kit, that costs less for me to fabricate, which in return costs less for my customers.

Photos are my kits, designed in Auto cad by my self.

I have 2 thoughts:

#1  If you have a vise, a sawzall, and a drill, you can pretty easily make your own 2 inch lift out of 1/4" thick 2x2 steel tubing. Anyone who can make a straight-ish cut and drill a hole, can build a 2 inch lift. There are pretty good instructions if you search around a bit. http://www.ultimates...nd-easy-2-lift/

 

 

Of course if you have a band saw and a drill press it makes it a little bit easier, but it can definitely be done without. If you want to go taller than 2 inches, I don't think I'd recommend just slapping some blocks in, but a 2 inch lift like I've described is tried and true. Save your money for something else.

 

#2 Buying stuff is a little bit easier.

 

Just my opinion, but like they say, opinions are like ***holes. Everyone has one and they all stink.
