I used a ReadyLift kit that was supposed to be an all-in-one kit. But I had to supplement the kit with a bigger rear sway bar, adjustable front end links, and longer caster bolts. A friend and I did it ourselves one Saturday. The kit said it would take around 3 hours. It took us closer to 9. I'm still hearing a little bumping in the front end, it's not exactly rubbing, but I think it is bumping into the bottom of the shock housing or something. I have wheel spacers ordered which should take care of it. It's still such a new car that it is hard to find parts. A lot of stuff I've had to modify to fit the car. I've done a lot of backyard wrenching in my life - this was my first experience doing anything with suspension. If I could go back and do it again, I would spend the extra money for a high quality lift and let a pro do it.
Ah yeah, I'd imagine the bottom of the strut mount probably only has an inch and a half or so of clearance from the top of the factory tires. How much diameter did you gain going to the Kumhos from the stocks?

About an inch and a half maybe. I'm still tinkering with it. When the wheel spacers come in I'll be checking the whole thing over again and retorquing everything.

I haven't taken it anywhere! I joined OB so I could get some maps or routes. The car has less than 3k miles on it.
You should check out this upcoming event: NC/SC Brown Mountain OHV Overnight Trip

I won't be able to make it but it should be a lot of fun. [emoji1]

And the upstate SC area folks definitely need to get some group outings going this summer. Seems to be quite a few of us now.

Yeah, I saw that but I already have plans for that weekend. I have some family coming into town. Hopefully I'll be able to catch the next one.
