    I know this goes against the grain in everybodies soul, but too bad. it's my k5, and used with way I want so I don't wanna hear it... LOL [​IMG]

    anyway, here is the pic of what Jedi Mind Trick (JMT) looks like <a target="_blank" href=http://coloradok5.com/albums/Jeffs-Stuff/aae.sized.jpg>when dropped back to stock height.</a> I think it looks good still, and if much more practical for the way I use it.

    the front is stock, and the rear sits about 3" higher then the front from about 2 inches in springs, and about 1" in body. I plan on removing the body lift, and may eventually get some rear stock springs, with a add a leaf also. for now I'm happy with it though.

    the entire thing is not lifted 1" just the rear. it also is come kind of fabbed up body lift, and with the way everything else has been done on this k5, except the paint job, I'd be it was the cheapest possible way of doing things that takes no thought to practicality or performance.
