It raised the front exactly an inch for a cost of $3.30. Worked great.
Great idea and very budget friendly

Thanks for the additional input monepit. I need to raise my front end 1" and this should work.

When you raise the front using this technique doesn't it introduce unwanted negative camber? I'm assuming that it does. I'm just wondering how much.

I am planning on lifting the front end of my DS about 1.75" using this technique. In preparation for that project I modified some a-arms so I can adjust camber. I think that the limiting factor for me will be the clearance between the tie-rod and the frame. (Actually, the limiting factor will probably be my patience because minor camber adjustments will require removing the arms from the clevis and I can see myself getting it "close enough" and then moving on to something more interesting.)

It worked fine on mine. I've actually done it 4 or 5 times now on different DS projects and it works great.
