[email protected] I installed Pirelli Scorpion ATR 255/60R18 tires before I got the lift and they fit just fine, no rubbing. The Eibach lift has made the ride a little more 'sporty', but have sure increased my clearance and reduced sagging when full of cargo. I've gotten use to it and think that's a winning combination for this car.

Jacko Looks great - do you think that the rubber would fit withouit the lift? anyone else tried?

The beast Im going to tackle the Innaminka, Strezlecki and Birdsville track in one trip. What would your recommended tyre be? Any thoughts on tyre pressures for the dirt tracks?

[email protected] Thanks for that input. I figured as much. However, this is food for thought: I asked Eibach this question directly along with some instructions and received this answer from John on their sales team:

“To my knowledge the original struts / shocks are retained.

Installation instructions are referred back to the OE workshop repair manual.”

Can you all share your experience compared with rhis statement? Ty!!!!

yeah you would eventually

Eibach pro linft Kit

hello, I've also added the Eibach higher laying.
But after a short time there were already noises from the powertrain.
The wear and tear could be seen and heard.
Don't you have any problems with it?

I had this at first. Developed after a month or so. My installer rectified by essentially backing off and retorquing the bolts or something. He said the first time he installed he did up the bolts with the spring compressor in place. It seems that the bolts need to be re-adjusted after releasing the pressure on the springs. Which makes sense to me.

Anyway, its been 30,000KM or so now, and all good. No noises, squeaks or rattles.

It's now 1 or 2 years since some of you guys fitted their lift kits: what is the experience with them? All good?
Been good. Would do again. Vastly improves off-road capability.

I've attached a recent photo I took after installing a Rhinorack Pioneer Tray (so I can carry a full size spare etc), turned out to be a good illustration of the +1 tyres and the lift.
