A few months later... How's your experience been with this kit?
it's good, i had to bend the gas tank shield a little. it was rubbing on the drive shaft.
i've bottomed out a few times. but that is part of the life
for the most part it rides very smooth.
love the stance.
oh i did use different front bump stops then the ones supplied
i believe that is the one i used..
i would like to add some ihc brackets, but with them no longer making the no cut kit that wont be happening anytime soon.
also want to add core4x4 control arms. but will probably do that when i do the ihc bracket kit

Appreciate the feedback. Are your wishes to do the brackets and control arms due to instability issues? Do you think the bottoming out issue is from the control arm mounts hitting the frame, or bump stop contact? Maybe removing the entire bump stop/cup and replacing with a smaller unit would help...?

i wanna do the bracket kit to have proper control arm angle. i'm not having any instability issues. i did add a 3/4 rear sway bar at the say time as the drop.
i'm not 100% sure whats hitting when it bottoms out. havent had a chance to get under it and see.
the only times its bottomed out has been hitting LARGE bumps or train tracks at speed that i didnt see coming in time to slow down

Thanks for the info. Trying to map out my plans for converting my Rebel w/ air suspension to a 2/4 drop kit. A lot of mixed info out here. And since lowering isn't common, the waters are a bit muddy.
