it says in your profile you've got an '84 wagon, but the one in your avatar looks very much to be an EA82 ('85+).....:confused:

photobucket is great, but if you're only going to show the pics here, it's just as easy (if not easier) to just attach them to the thread. you'll see a button when you're posting under 'additional options' called 'manage attachments'

Hey did you build that lift, or manage to buy one? I"m looking to get a 10 inch, but it seems i may never find one, so im thinking i'll have to stack 2 4's and settle with an 8 inch. unless i can figure out how on earth to make one.....:-\

Uh, its not so much putting in lift blocks after you go above 4". Unless you are going to stay with like 28" tires or so.. You will definatly want a t-case, and for that you basically need to build a subframe..


But, i wanna see some fullsize pics of that beast:headbang: :banana:

even if you weren't going to put in a tcase....once you get above 4-6" you really need to build a frame under the car to give it the strength it needs. otherwise you'll mangle the unibody (it's easy to do with just a 4" kit, trust me :banghead: )

What kind of tires are you going to use? Those make it look like a skate board. lol
Have you got the exaust installed? If so, it's tucked well.

And yeah, are you going to try it out at Walker Valley or what? :brow:
