UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.

 

As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Building my own sub frame drop


Recommended Posts

I feel like this is the best way to lift the front of my 02 qx4.

I can't find anyone selling a prefabbed "kit" and from what I've been reading, and videos I've watched the folks who cut a piece of tube for spacers and bolt them seem to always work loose after driving a while.

My idea is to cut solid stock for a 3" lift and weld the upper to the body then drill/tap for the subframe to bolt into the solid spacers.

*Opinions; pros/cons* to my way of thinking??

Gonna opt for land rover springs in the rear.

I built a missing link from solid stock (yet to install) and sourced some nice sheets of stainless to make skids plates, but want to do the lift 1st. Then build bumpers and tie it all together as needed.

Any constructive criticism is greatly appreciated!
