    I spent $79.95 for a 4 wheel alignment not long ago (no lift). Not sure if having a lift would add more $$$$.

    I've read of exhaust pipe issues with this install. Anyone note any here? I'm about to do one on a '15 Lat., FWD.

    Does the lift kit alter how the renegade feels to drive i.e. More body roll or swaying around on sharp bends I see so many Land Rovers over here (uk)jacked up and look cool but when you follow one there swaying like a tree in the breeze .

    Ok I know this is a old write up but I’m desperate here. I can’t for the life of me get the front strut to fit after putting the spacer on. It’s as if it’s just to long. It bottomed out on the axle and I can’t get the strut to line up with the knuckle.

    or using wood and a jack to compress the strut? That’s what tat photo looks like and I may try that.
