Did you make the lift kit or did you buy it? I have been looking at my buddies G9 that he put a double arm lift kit on and I figured it would be easier to make a kit by dropping the A arms down and putting in 4-6" piece of metal between the frame and A arms and of course making longer brackets for everything else.

That's all this lift is, 4 steel plates to drop the a arms down. I had to extend my tie rod ends, took them to my welder and he added 1" to them, he charged me $10 to do it

I spent $60 on my lift and it's worth every pennie if you don't mind welding.

Did you buy longer shocks or just add extensions to the shock brackets to fit?

It is a bracket to extend the shock. Eventually I will prolly get longer shocks as the money allows, but I have other projects on the cart I want to do first!!

I had the roof mounted a little too high, so I took it apart and cut 2" off. Looks better now. Also mounted tread plate below the seat so shoes dont scuff the paint. Gonna start my radio install and dash next

Ohh, and the seat covers I did myself!! Didnt turn out to shabby! Felt a little out of place at the fabric store with all the little old ladies! My mom gave me a coupon and it cost me a big $13 for the vinyl!

On mine I payed $10 for the hitch reciever tube from harbor freight, I got the shocks off ebay for $50 shipped (Honda 400ex) and I had the spare metal. I went a little high on the lift so I had to lower the top mounts a little. For the rear I just made lower top mounts. $60 into it and it flexes like crazy and the front hitch has more then made it all worth it. You can weld what ever size brackets you want to adjust the size of your lift. I do wish I had spent a little more on the shocks and got the TRX450R shocks. They hold the weight better. The front end dips when you back up
