    Next was the 2" lift done by the guys at total Traction Tyres in Lonsdale SA. They used the Darren from Autocraft method. Bilstein shocks all round with easy rider springs in the front and some secret adjusting and welding on the rear air bags. Lost the comfort setting (which I only used once anyway), but still have the auto ride levelling and ability to lower or raise the rear for trailer and of road occassions.

    Looking good there, did you have any troubles with your size coopers before installing the 2" lift?

    Yep, rubbed on full lock, otherwise ok. Once the lift was done all rubbing stopped.

    Had ARB install front and rear airlockers. (No pics)

    Installed Billet Racing quad breathers to the front and rear diffs, tfr case and transmission. Also raised the fuel breather up inside near the fuel filler.
