Commence to lift

So after several weeks of getting to know the search function on this site, I have finally ordered all my stuff today. Ended up getting the Carli Suspension 4.5" Backcounty lift, 4" Readylift rear block, and a Rancho dual steering stabilizer. For shoes I ordered 315/70/18 Toyo M/T as I am going to stick with my stock rims for now and use them as my winter setup. Hopefully in the summer I plan on a set of 37X18 with a set of chrome rims for my summer setup. That will be another mind boggling decision on what offset/backspace/style to go with. I do want to thank all the members on here that have posted their setup in the past, it made a huge difference in my selection of parts.

You could just use a photo-hosting service like Photobucket to share the pictures instead of attaching them to the posts. Looking forward to pictures and a ride report!

Note, with a 4" block in the rear, you will sit a bit tail high. You're plenty capable of an additional 5/8" of lift with those shocks but thought I would throw it out there. Also, can you post a link to the dual steering stabilizer you bought? I want to ensure it is not an emulsion unit as those do not help stabilization and tend to blow out pretty quick considering the pistons are only half submerged in oil at any given time.

Looking forward to pictures and a ride report!

Hey Jason,
Thanks for the order!

For wheels I would suggest going with 8.5-9" wide wheels with a backspace around 5.5". That would eliminate most chances of rubbing. If you go with the wheel with less backspace lke 5" your 37's will contact the front bumper braces when making tight turns. Some guys will either space the bumper forward a bit or modify the braces if they run wheels like that.

here is the link to the steering stabilizer that I found. I hope I didnt make a mistake by picking that one. I guess I could always return it if you know of a better option.

Rancho Suspension: Shocks » Steering Stabilizers

I saw this video on the tube and thought it looked ok.

Those steering stabilizers look to be emulsion. If they are, i would strongly consider returning them and grabbing our IFP designed high-mount steering stabilizer. If you like the idea of the dual, I believe superlift makes a 5100 series unit that is an IFP design (oil and nitrogen are separated by a dividing piston which keeps the shock piston submerged ion oil, preventing cavitation for optimal performance).
