    Is that from the centre of the wheel cap or top of the wheel cap? Seems a touch low!

    EDIT: you did both arms on the rear sensors hey - could explain a bit!

    Centre of wheel cap. Yeah I feel inadequate now! Its pretty much 2" higher than the stock settings in each height. Thereby maintaining the arnott spring rate. I could go higher thru eas recalibration, but fear stetching/fatiguing the bags.

    Well I finally finished my lift.

    For the height sensor arm extension (both top and bottom for the rear but only bottom of the front) I used thick walled fuel and oil resistant tube with stainless worm clamps. 15mm Solid rod put in the gap to stiffen the arms. Works well. Not worth fitting the turn buckle and Rod ends I bought for the purpose.

    30mm spacers with rubber packers installed on the bump stop plates. Using the most of the extra travel of the shocks and the bags seem ok at full droop.

    Brake lines seem fine. ABS lines just pulled through as much as possible through the bracket and cable tied up.

    Shocks are the typical Terrafirma.

    Pics attached but will add more detail if Keith decides to update the first post but don't think it's necessary.

    Rear not quite lifting but must be close. Need better places to lift front and rear for poser shots. This same hump used to lift the stock rear about 2 inches.

    Anybody worked out what happens to the caster angle with a 2" lift. At a standard height of circa 530mm it still feels fine, indicating to me that the caster is still in positive territory.

    Mine feels twitchy in standard height when performing moderate-speed corners. I think that driving in low height normally will eliminate this, but yes, I believe we are still in good castor territory.

    Anybody know how to measure the caster angle? Out of the box it is 4 degs - assume thats at standard height.

    When I got my wheel alignment done the caster was measured as part of the standard report. See att pic. At highway height still within spec .
