    note he also has a 2nd gen. eibachs are rated for somewhere around 1.5" for a 2nd gen compared to 3" on a 1st gen. so that may be a factor to consider...

    Ga_taco4x4- unfortunately I didn't measure. I wasn't satisfied enough so I went with a 1/2" spring isolator as well. I'm sitting at 23" from center wheel to fender.
