    2006 LIBERTY LIMITED w/ 70,000 miles
    All stock
    Added recieved hitch


    Before lift
    18 1/2" on all four corners

    Lift: (Added 2 weeks ago)
    Front OME 926 (medium) / Rancho RSX struts
    Rear OME 948 (medium) / Rancho RSX shock

    After lift
    21 1/2" on all four corners

    Granted, it hasn't completely settled yet, and I probably had lost at least 1" to sag, but a solid 3" lift from before - not bad.

    Even with no lift I would definately do it over again just for the vast gain in ride & handeling. Feels like a new car again.

    Now for some new tires....

    So, it's been nine months, nine days and 9979.9 miles since installing the Frankenlift on our Liberty.

    The measurements here reflect all the coil spring settling:

    Front end: 22.25 inches*
    Rear end : 21.25 inches*
    *from bottom of front and rear fender flare to hub center of wheel.

    I have MINIMAL rubbing only or lock to lock right hand steering.
    Other than that, all is excellent!

    Cheers
    Ry'

    You do know you folks are flying in the face of the designers.:D
    I remember reading in that @#$#%^! manual that they chose the original suspension height for aesthetics.
    Go figure.

    21" at all 4 fenders.

    06 sport
    51,000miles
    daystar 2.5" on for about 7k miles.
    both front 21"
    left rear 21.5"
    right rear 22"

    Work was slow today so I did my OME/Rancho with 1 extra iso in rear and boiler plate in front and the rear is slightly higher than the front and the pass side rear is 3/4" higher than the driver side (measured with less than 1/4 tank of gas. I gassed up on my way home so I will measure again and write them down this time)
