    Sounds like a good choice. Pls post some photos once you're done installing it.

    No Problem. I payed the $30 for expedited shipping so I will get them by this Thursday and probably install them over the weekend. Will post some pics.

    Got the kit in the mail today. Looks pretty good.
    1 question though. Does the rear spring spacer go on top of the spring or on the bottom? Going to install it tomorrow

    Looks like there is some drilling required. Didn't realize until now. The plate that goes over the strut mount where the bolt goes through is way too small.
    Any thoughts?

    Got the holes drilled and the left side installed. For the right the axle is hitting the control arm mount. Might need to do some cutting.
    I thought this install would be easy lol. I don't understand how some guys with the RRO get away with not cutting the control arm mounts.
    Let's hope the rear isn't as hard.

    This is the first I've heard about needing to clearance the control arm buckets for droop with the Russian kit.


    As for people with the RRO kit not cutting, there is absolutely no way you can get away without cutting. If people don't cut/grind the area down they will without a doubt experience contact with their axles when the suspension droops.
