    Seems reasonable $ for 2" blocks & bolts. I wouldn't go near alloy either.

    Had the diff relocation kit installed yesterday.
    Thanks @steveieh
    Steve pointed out something to me that's due to the longer travel of the Monster Rides strut assembly. At full droop, the upper control arm rests on the spring. Nothing catastrophic, I'm sure. On close inspection, it may even stop the CV joints from suffering.
    I was thinking that a modified UCA would overcome this, but then the bearing carrier would hit.
    Love the lift. Now sitting 290mm at the lowest point of the bash guard. Obviously it will settle a fraction.
    Did I mention Steve at Coolum Motors did a top job? He certainly looked after us!

    @Winchy what is your measurement from centre of the hub to the underside of the flare now?

    Can you take some more snaps? Interested to see the diff drop installed.

    Just had to race out and see if my trusty hydraulic bottle jack would lift it enough for a tyre change!
    Whew... Made it by 2"...

    So my noob understanding is if I go with a drop kit it will provide a better cv angle to allow more lift to be installed? Please correct me if I'm wrong though

    Will be interesting to see how the drop kit will go and the monster rides suspension too. My biggest issue will be my wife's bad back, that's why we chose the rok for its ride comfort out of all the dual cabs.

    Interested to see if King shocks will make a setup to suit too

    Fitted a set of Outback Armour springs and struts to the from of my ute. Have an ARB steel bar fitted and settled reading, after 6 months is 580mm wheel centre to guard. 580mm is the MAX OA recommends for everyday use. No diff relocate required. 10mm lower than the Monster Rides and money in my pocket, thanks Outback Armour! BTW, hung the wheel heap of times and given the ute some well deserved washout and hole action and no issues with how high it sits

    G'day, anyone with monster ride 3 inch suspension and their diff drop. Much notice in the way it drives from standard? Also what happens with the factory Bash plate? Can it still be used or too squeezy? Cheers Jake Robinson
