That should give you the motivation to get the manx finished. Once you are out there having fun, you wont mind working on the buggy. Good Score

It looks fantastic!
Really good height man.

How much clearance do you have under the front now?

And how much droop do you have left?

Hey cam it looks great withthe front lifted, but maybe a dumb question. Am going to raise my baja at front soon and was going to cut and twist beams but am curious as to what you mean by spindles. Can you get spindle to raise a car similar to spindles for lowering as I haven't seen anything like that?

Yep, there's lifted spindles available, just like lowered spindles but in the raised position. The VW Thing uses a similar system, but better, they have stronger trailing arms and the ball joints both face down so it's a stronger setup, like a balljoint kombi, and VW too, so 100% legal.

I recently paid US$300 + shipping for stubs, arms and camber adjusters. They come up on Shoptalk forum or Samba regularly.
