    I may even try to find stock trail hawk springs for our Altitude this way we don't have to buy new tires again....

    I ordered these on the 22nd from ATP directly. Charged my card already, but won't reply to e-mail or phone call (left message) to give me any idea of when they will ship. I last tried on Wednesday, maybe I'll call again on Monday.

    Does anyone recall how long it took them to respond once you ordered, if you placed your order through ATP directly?

    Thanks!

    Hey guys, I'm super new to this. Used to full size Chevy trucks and easy 3" lifts. I have a '17 Toaster Sport and want to go with the Eibach spring lift w/ 225/75s on my stock 16 inchers. Are all these lift kits interchangeable between Renny models? Btw, tires are already on the way. I'm a little nervous as they are a shade over 2" taller than the factory Continental crap that's almost bald at 18,500 miles. Will I need to pinch seam mod as well?

    225 75 r16s require Pinch Seem mod even with 2.5" AVID and 2" ATP lift springs.

    The part to cut is at the bottom of the wheel well, so all the lifting really didnt help much to avoid that seem.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll look up a video to see how it's done unless somebody has an easy to find link in here.

    Thanks again. Looks easy enough. I'll be doing this today or tomorrow in preparation for my 225/75-16

    So far I've ordered the 1.5" Avid lift, done pinch seam mod, ordered a set of 225/75 16 Toyo Open Country AT3, ordered a set of 1" wheel spacers and an planning for the Eibach springs next month. I'm really stoked to get all these parts in and installed to see the transformation of my Hulk (Hypergreen Sport 4x4). I'm really digging the Avid bumpers too but they've already smacked me for $86 just to ship the 1.5" lift to Alaska...bcuz as 'Anthony' put it, "we do not ship to AK normally". Will post pics along the way.

    The only thing there is that the ATP 2" lift springs say they require the 2" ATP Spacer lift kit. Not sure if the 1.5 Avid kits will work, because it doesn't have all the extra spacers to lower the driveline, exhaust and rear diff. that the ATP 2.0 and Avid 2.0+ kits have. I am not sure if their caveat is around things hitting/rubbing without those extra spacers or the increase in angles on the driveline without the driveline spacer, etc. That is the main reason I went with a 2"+ kit (2.5 in my case, because of the higher quality parts/manufacturing over the 2.0 kit) from AVID when using the 2" ATP lift springs.

    seriously the only reason they say that is to get you to buy the spacers from them, there is literally zero difference between the ATP springs and the Eibach springs except for the color. They intended the springs to be an add on for "their" spacer kit and are getting their feelings hurt because people only want the springs now lol

    Hey Dewatto,

    You are better off just cancelling your order with them and buying somewhere else. I ordered, or I guess attempted to order, the engine skid from them when I first got my Rene. They did not respond to any emails, phone line to their business does not go through, and received no updates for over a month. I eventually just cancelled my order and bought the skid through Quadratec (at $30 cheaper too due to free shipping). Received it from them in 4 days.

    Just look up their reviews on their shop in La Habra, CA and you will see many other customers saying the same thing. I am 40 miles from them and they still never shipped mine!

    I can 100% recommend AVID on the other hand, they have given nothing but great service and quick replies to all questions I have sent them.

    Thanks @Dewatto. I’ll reach out to Avid for a little clarity on this and share. I just got my 1.5” lift in the mail today but have to wait to install. Avid didn’t send instructions to install so I’ve already emailed them about it. Picking up my 1” wheel spacers tomorrow. I’m gonna run around with this setup for a little while but already thinking about that 4” lift

    ATP is an absolute pain to deal with. I ordered some light brackets just to test them out, shipping, customer service, etc...... Just to see how they were before spending hundreds as I heard a few bad things about them. A couple weeks went by. Nothing. Gave them two more weeks and nothing. Called, no answer. Called again. No answer. Finally emailed with my complaint and asked for a refund. Refund was credited back to my account in 24 hours. Never heard anything from an actual representative. Two months later I get an email notifying me that a shipping label was created by ATP . THREE MONTHS TO SHIP TWO LITTLE LIGHT BRACKETS!!!!! No way. Either list it on your website that you are way behind on Mfg or at least let customers know expected lead time. I think because of this what seems to be an ongoing issue, they are loosing out on customers and potential future customers. Rightfully so.

    With that being said, I just placed an order through CarID for the 2” ATP lift . Will see if shipping is faster than three months through a secondary supplier. Doubtful because CarID is already saying that shipping is estimated for Aug 20th. If they aren’t shipped by 20th I’m going the Avid route and never looking back.
