Hi guys!

I ordered a 40mm Spacer kit on ebay last week.

I read somewhere that from 2" onwards the CVs are affected negatively and will wear faster. Is it true? Has anyone with that kind of lift experienced many issues?

In other posts i read that 2" is fine, but anything taller will need further modding to avoid issues.

Thanks in advance

I can only speak for SG Foresters, and on those a 2" lift is fine. I ran a 65 mm rear, 50 mm front lift for 3 years and 100k km with no ill effects.

For interest sake, can you post a link to the kit you bought?
