Before I rush out next month & get my Ironman kit I thought I'd better just make certain that Fiery had not had a lift of any kind as people do keep saying to me that she looks like she's already had a lift :? :?: :!: So now I'm not sure :? She's definetly had new shocks all round & I'd agree that she does look well sitting on the flat black stuff :D So if someone could measure from the ground to a good reference point on a standard unlifted LC or with 265/75 tyres fitted this would be much appreciated :D

Not sure those springs look standard. Shocks won't give you a lift as the standard ones aren't at the end of their travel on OM springs anyway. Those springs look like OME ones to me. If they were original I think they'd be a bit flaky by now. You can't tell by looking at a pic so measurements may help, but it doesn't look particularly lifted to me. Standard lifts tend to raise the front higher than the rear and yours looks level. Got a pic of the rear springs?

some measurements on this thread

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=7515&start=0

top of wheel rim to bottom of wheel arch

i dont have wheel arch flares, not sure if that screws the measurements

front of mine now 34cm, i replaced the 50-100kg springs, with 50kg ones as it was too high at the front

The original springs fitted to Fiery must be sha***d :shock:

I've loaded her up today for a day @ my local P&P site Bures tomorrow (Sunday) & I've put it all in as I would like to have it :D Now I already know that all of my kit (HI-Lift, Waffles, Spade, Blocks of wood, Chain, Tools you get the picture all of my gear) weighs 120.85Kg my new storage box 22Kg & the coffin 15.6Kg roughly totaling 160Kg :) Is this alot of weight for a cruiser :?: :!: As I came in I looked back @ her & thought 'she looks low' :!: So I got out me tape & she's droped 4cm on the back end from the figures above & gained 1cm on the front :roll: But worse than that she'a down hard on her bump stops @ the back end :shock: :!:

I took a couple of pics of it this morning before I left :shock:

No wonder peeps report getting a 70, 80 or even a 90mm lift from a 40mm lift kit :roll: :D

Counting the days to mine arriving now :)
