Going to do some XC tomorrow. Completely different riding than what you do.

After putting a hammer drill through my thumb yesterday, I'm gonna call XC a win.

Ouch! I put an impact through my finger a few years ago. Not fun. This place has a bit of everything. I usually take the downhill trail to the bottom then take a xc trail back to the parking lot. It's short though only 6 kms.

You did disconnect the sway bar right? My 1.5" leveled Bilsteins slipped in with PLENTY of space to spare...

I know what you mean though, the tight area makes the whole process very interesting.

Yup. Did the swaybar. They amounted to about 2.25" of lift so we had to wedge them in there. Needed about a half an inch of clearance.

Did you use a bottle or scissor jack? When I did my leveling kit I used a scissor jack inbetween the control arm and frame for more clearance. Worked great.
