      lift details

      How many spacers/mounts are there with the kit? Is there any online guides for doing this?

      There are 8 total spacers you will need.

      I just did a 3" lift - http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=419615 - 9th post down in this thread I used the bolt length from a post somewhere here in the forum, but you will have to convert mm to inch, and subtract 1" from the bolt size I list (since I did a 3" lift and you want to do a 2")

      I've been doing research... I am planning on a 2" body lift. In the interest of helping others I did the math. If anyone finds an error please feel free to let me know. I couldn't find anyplace that said how long the factory numbers are, but could find how long the 3" lift kit bolts are. Based on that, I did the math to find the lengths for the 2" and stock heights. The Numbers for the MM are accurate, the Inches are rounded. For the mounts under the rear of the front seats, I took the given length of the 3" lift rear cargo area bolts, then subtracted 3". This gave me the stock length of the rear of the front seat bolts. Then used that info for the stock and 2" lift bolts. Again, if I did anything wrong, let me know.

      Body Mount Bolts Stock

      Front mounts - 105MM = 4”
      Mounts that are in front of the front seats - 65MM = 2.5”
      Mounts just under the rear of the front seats - 125MM = 5”
      Mounts in the front of cargo area - 85MM = 3.5”
      Mounts in rear of cargo area - 125MM = 5”


      Body Mount Bolts 2” lift

      Front mounts - 155MM = 6”
      Mounts that are in front of the front seats - 115MM = 4.5”
      Mounts just under the rear of the front seats – 175MM = 7”.
      Mounts in the front of cargo area - 135MM = 5.25”
      Mounts in rear of cargo area - 175MM = 6.75”


      Body Mount bolts 3” lift

      Front mounts - 180MM = 7”
      Mounts that are in front of the front seats - 140MM = 5.5”
      Mounts just under the rear of the front seats – stock bolts from the very rear mounts
      Mounts in the front of cargo area - 160MM = 6.25”
      Mounts in rear of cargo area - 200MM = 8”
