Well I guess I can’t say I did this today, it took a solid week, but got the lift on as well as some other things.

It rides really good so far. Can’t wait to get it off road for a shake down run to see how well it performs.

Nowhere near enough pictures!

How’s the clearance of the top mount drag link? I’ve heard it will hit the frame on the passenger side with the MC lift since it flexes so much. I have the MC 3.5” gamechanger on order, but installed the bottom mount yeti drag link because of the issue mentioned above. I’d rather have the top mount for bump steer issues if it didn’t hit.

One of the beauty's of our 3.5" Game Changer suspension is that you don't need the top mount because you are not going to experience any bump steer issues. We will be releasing our own drag link soon, that, like stock, has a bend designed for upward clearance, but, at 3.5" you do not need to go hi-steer.

I thought i was done after piecing my GC lift together. Now MC springs a tie rod and drag link on us! Time to replace some more factory parts :like:

All I can tell you is this thing drives so nice. I think it steers better than stock.

I asked the same question after I read not to install it. The shop knows about it and set it up so it’s not a problem.

I’d bet it drives really nice and I’m sure the shop knows their stuff. Would be interesting to check if they installed more bumpstop on the front passenger side than on the front drivers side. Theoretically, at least in my feeble brain, you could get away with less bumpstop on the drivers side as you’d need more on the passenger side to keep the top mount drag link from hitting.

I'll post pics but they did not install more bumpstop on the front passenger than on the drivers side. I've got 3 pucks on each side.
