Are these kits sold anymore? ozified.com isn't doing lift kits right now, and e-mail to the BYB site keeps bouncing back to me.

I like the BYB kit because it keeps my suspension where it is right now. I already have a suspension lift (adjustable struts up front, accord springs in the back) and I don't want any more.

well, PK (ozified.com) is the only one who can make them in the US....

if you lose the accord springs, and un-adjust your front end, you'll have a much softer ride, and much more suspension travel. Then you can very safely run the SJR kit without a problem

SJR also makes all the parts so you can either drop just the diff, or the whole rear crossmember (BAAAD idea, if you wheel it much). so you still wouldn't have to worry about the axle angles.

PK does good work, but SJR's got the better design. it's definitely worth the extra cost!

I never take the car offroad - it's the on-road stuff that makes me particularly want the BYB lift. My daily drive to work requires me to only make 3 lefts and 2 rights. The problem is that in the spring and fall, I'm travelling down a mucky-muck road made of gummy clay.

I need the rough suspension to shake the clay off my car and in particular, out of the wheel wells. The suspension was way too soft stock, and all I did was pack the wheel wells full until would literally lock up my wheels. I had to stop every mile and dig out my wheel wells. The rough ride of the accord springs and adjustable struts is the only thing that keeps me moving. I guess I could cut coils to get the height back down and give myself an even harsher ride, but I'd rather just do a pure body lift if I could.

I realize the SJR lift is beefy (those strut tower extensions look SCARY strong) but I really want to keep the same suspension geometry that I have now.
