Blu has 7.3 Inches acording to the cars101.com chart. a 4" lift kit is in the mail, which increases it by 2" (replaces the factory 2" lift). Blu will have 9.3 inches of clearance soon.

Way cool.

Blu's getting 1000.00 worth of work in the next two weeks, one step closer to Alaska.

i've adjusted to my chronic back pain, so i probably can :clap:

Neo, I will be joining the club. Picking up a 92 leg wag. today. Getting it for 500 bucks so it will deff be an experiment!!!!! It is obviously getting O/B struts right away and there will be more plans in the works after that. I have a junk set of struts that I will be hacking up and trying to fab new lower spring seats so I can get a bigger tire under it and once that is figured out it will really get crazy. You know what my resources look like :grin: so there will be alot of trial and error parts. :Flame:And also there is a place down the street from my house that will custom make springs and whatever suspension parts you would want for a very good price. I am actually kicking around the idea of just starting with a strut cartridge and making my own struts. I will deff be taking alot of pics throughout this project and will post my results!!!

I've got a foot under the rear diff but,

I have it lowered all the way down to save my joints.

It's the front that matters anyway.
