I had to lower the front back down to keep from popping cv's. I went back to the original struts. Its been 3 days and no problems since. Before the cvs never made it more then 100 miles. Its a little low for what I would like but I think it works

What were the longer struts out of? and what snorkle did you use? it fits nice. Great build

I still have no idea what these struts are out of. They have a smaller diameter 5.5 inch spring as opposed to the standard 6.5 inch spring, but they still have the ea81 style strut tops. 1st gen maybe? The snorkel is from a Mitsubishi Pajero that I then heated up and bent back to match the a-pillar a little better.

So it turns out too much front lift is a really bad thing. I would end up replacing the front axles almost every other day I drove it witch got really old really fast. I couldnt really lower it down with the big tires so the only other option was to go bigger :headbang: So its currently undergoing an 8 inch lift, Sammi Tcase, and roll cage.
