Rustys 6inch lift.
 
Hey guys,
Im about to order the Rustys 6 inch FSJ lift (this friday actually)
Anything I should know about? any body done this lift?
Any other/better lifts. I most want something that will offer good articulation, without compromising street use(as the girlfriend will be using it)
thanks!

Re: Rustys 6inch lift.
 
A couple of guys on the IFSJA board have Rusty's kit....one thing to consider is front driveline angle... I orginally had the Skyjacker 4" Softride suspension (still do) and my front shaft was close to being maxed out in angle (OEM CV joint runs 16 degrees operating angle and 22 degrees max before binding) and it would hit the "y" pipe on a good tweeked out position.

I love my Skyjacker Softride...even as high as I am now the ride is still good with massive tweak...

As the guys on the IFSJA board... they will help you more....
