Just put Newton 2.5" kit on my Harley

Used the Newton 2.5" kit they sell on ebay. He sent me some one piece rear 2" lift blocks with the snubber platform, so I didn't have to use the factory blocks. Took us about 2 hours to put it all on. Everything fit great.

Nothing really on pointers, everything worked just like it should. My buddy who helped me works on the chassis line at Kentucy Truck Plant, so he knew what size every bolt was. That was a huge help.

Looks realy good. It apears to have a tad bit of rake which in my opinion looks way better than perfect level or front high like a lot of kits i see.

It's got a little over an inch of rake, that's what I was shooting for. I have 35 X 12.5 Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ's on order, still undecided on the wheels.
