97 Tracker upgrades

I just purchased a 97 Tracker in prestine condition.Two door. 5 speed, removable hardtop with AC (less than 25K on the drivetrain). I'm looking to get a little high....I mean lift it a bit so I can put some 30X9.5's on it. I just read the dreadful exerience everyone is having with RRO's and their delivery of parts. I also read about the harshness of the Calmini lifts. What's a guy to do? I want to keep the same ride comfort, yet get something reliable for some not so serious offroading. I DON'T want to have to weld anything anywhere. What's everyone's reccomendations? I'm no backyard mechanic by any means, but I did intall the lift on my 87 Sammi before I got stupid and sold it last year.

The Old Man Emu lift is considered the best in ride quaility and will easily clear 30's. Any ARB dealer can get OME products for you.

2" urethane lift blocks....

2" urethane lift blocks added to your coil springs are fairly simple and inexpensive. These are round donut style lift blocks that fit up in your coil spring housings. The only hard part is locating a spring compressor. Also, you can reverse the strut caps on the top to gain a bit. I did this on my '95 Tracker and added 235-15 tires and got a nice lift with reasonable ride. Calmini carries them. Good luck!

Why

Two questions...So I can just find a different ARB dealer and not have to use RRO? The second question....why do you have re-register every time you do something on this site? To veiw a section you have register in, to reply you have re-register. That's rediculous!

If you can avoid it, purchase everything you can elsewhere before you use RRO.

As for re-registering, something is up with the security settings on your puter. Site is fine, no problems here.
