Default My new lift and tyres :)

Well I decided to treatyoself and decided to share with you guys.
Got a 2" Bilsteins and Kings suspension lift and 265/70R17s installed today as the shop was having a 15% off on the lift and they cut me a deal since I bought 5 new tyres. The 5th tyre fits the spare carrier very nicely with no modification. I went with Falken WildPeak AT3Ws.
Here's a before and after pic

Yeah, I reckon the lack of a bull bar on the front probably makes a difference and means the struts are at full stretch.

Drive it for 500klms then get a wheel alignment (all 4 wheels) when everything has settled. Will drop a little.

It's hard to say how different it is from stock as I bought the car and then 2 weeks later put the lift in it. Taking it on a 3hours drive this weekend camping so i'll post back

Yeah the shop said around 1500kms bring it back in. Which will take awhile for me as it's only my weekend/evening vehicle since I have a work ute
