    Awsome! thank you! I just wanted to make sure that my coilovers are set to the right measurement. Im at 39-1/2 rear and 38-3/4 front.

    I just didnt want my front end to be above 3" lift. I think Im right were I need to be!

    i think im a little over 3 inches. i had a 2 1/2 lift and it was sitting a little lower in the front so to level it i put a 1/2 inch spacer in the front that gave me about 3/4 more lift. but to make up for it im using a diff drop cause im at 3 1/4 lift at least. the only problems ive had with my cv's is the inner boots leaking but i replaced them with high angle boots. other than that they are fine.

    Yeah, a little... Im down to 15 around town right now. But Im planning on doing a few things to try and get it a little higher. But chris4x4 said that, that mpg's is about right for a lifted 1st. gen with 33's and an automatic V6.

    Yep! But do you add 7.1% to your mileage? bc of the lift and tires... I didnt at first and was getting 12mpg's. But I talk to chris4x4 and he told that bc of my size tire I have to ad 7.1% to my mileage.

    i knew my front end was low! only 36 3/4 in the front, 38 1/2 in the rear. good, now I know I can just go to an 882 and not have to add any more rear lift.

    thats with stock coils on 5100's at 2.5 SAG much!
