Yep thats it. The box says 13mm but the shop told me 3.75 offset. I mixed up those two.

Hey bud,
how much did it cost to get your grill guard painted that color? Looks nice. I've been wanting to do mine that way for a while.

You can get them at 4wheelparts. I got these prices because i know the owner of the local 4x4 shop.

SC Did you run into any problems during the spindle install? I need to know about this ABS problem and also, what did you do about your brake lines? Anything? Please email me here @ work.

How's the ride?

I have almost the same car as you and my dad and I were thinking about putting a lift on it. How much different is the ride, is it really that ruff? Would you go with a 2" if you didn't want it to effect it that much?

The ride doesn't really change. It actually improved because i replaced the shocks. No more rollover feel. However, may have to be a little bit more careful because you're center of gravity is higher. Go with the 4" lift. I did the TT/Shackle thinking that 2" is ok. But heck, if you're gonna raise, raise it right! Now that i think about it, 4" is still not that high. You can still fit in parking structures.

Just fit 2WD explorers??

Hey! I have a '99 sport 4WD, is there a way I could fit this kind of lift in truck!? At this moment I can't afford a superlift lift kit, so I will try to replicate it, actually I will try to replicate a trailmaster IFS 4" kit, but if there is a way that I could get 4" lifted for 700 bucks only...

Front: 3" Explorer pro comp spindle(Actually made by Bullseye) and 1.25"TT $395
Rear: 4" trail master leaf spring 90-94 $241.11

I would be really interested in this lift...:bounce:

Do you have any pics of the spindle it would be really helpfull....

Thanks in advanced...
