So, has anyone done the lift kit from Daystar?
I am still trying to decide if I can do this myself. I looked at the instructions from daystar, and it seems straight forward, however the pics are that great.
I only want to do the front... not the rears.... anyone got some advice....
Thanks in advance

Consider the ED springs if you want an extra inch or two. Direct replacements. I just put a complete set in.

I have installed the Daystar lift. The front uses a spacer at the top of both strut towers and 4 spacers for the lower A-arm plate. You must also disconnect your steering shaft from the rack and pinion and install the extension rod there too. The hardest part is getting at the top of the strut because there isn't much room under the service flap hood).
