So I decided to go as cheap as possible to lift my 07 explorer. What I did was took the strut towers out and ran the eye into a 10" piece of 2"X2" tube steel. Bolted the eye bout 4" from the bolt in the a arm. It raised the front about 5". That brought the wheels inward so to correct it I had to put 1 1/4" spacers on the front wheels. The only issues I have is that it creaks and I'm wondering if my ball joints should be ok or if I need to fabricate a new upper control arm. What's everybody else's thoughts?
