      Props for making this. Seriously. This is probably every thread most people will need...

      Especially the lift sections, I'm about to get another First Generation to offroad, and this'll definitely help.

      Question?

      On the 01 Sport, the rear wheels are tucked in further than the front. I decided against doing spacers for the rear. Since the vehicle is in 2wd 99% of the time, would it affect anything (4x4) if the rear rim were wider? Or, better question: Help? :D

      ...I don't know a lot about your set up on the '01...What is the back spacing on your wheels???...What size tires are on them???...Etc...:dunno:

      ...The one thing I would worry about is the tire coming up to meet the rear fender...You could receive damage from just going around sharp corners if you don't have enough clearance and your tire can not tuck up, into the wheel well...This is not to mention when you do go off road...

      Ah! I didn't think about that... thank you! The tires/wheels are 265/70/16. I have no clue about the backspacing... Sounds like it's best left as is.
