Pro Comp 4" lift

Hey guys getting Merlin lifted up tomorrow! pretty excited. Decided to go with the pro comp 4" and 16" black method standard wheels. Gonna keep my 35's on there til the tread wears out. Ill post before and after pics.

2 questions, however:

1. The wheels I'm getting have 4.5" backspacing and I eventually want to throw 37's on. Can 37's happen without rubbing?

2. The shocks that come with the kit are the ES9000 I'm pretty sure. Any knowledge on these? good or bad? Anybody running the new Rancho XL9000? I thought it would be *****in to have that on the fly rancho compressor deal EZ ride with the compressor adjustable shocks. OR what shocks do you guys recommend?

Thanks Guys can't wait to throw an after picture up!

Here's the before picture while at pismo stock with the 35's

You need a taller lift to properly clear most 37" tires.

And pull back-trim the fender liner..and don't get crossed up if you off-road.

Its a Excursion but same front end..3" lift using hangers and V codes with small 35" really 33.5-34" so imagine 37" and only 1" taller when you turn its gona hit.

Looks great! How do you like the lift so far? How does it ride?

Thanks Scott! I'm lovin' it so far. Rides much better than stock, however my front shocks could have been blown beforehand. The only thing I need to focus on with suspension is the freeway hop. Feels like I could start and infomercial and compete with that weight loss belt they used to advertise in the 50's haha.
