Well, that could have saved me a couple years of total n00b-ish internet searching, trial and error and heartache. (I'm still a n00b, just not a total n00b.) But where would the fun be in that?

Throw on another column to show the tire sizes you can get away with for each lift incriment (without cutting fenders), and you've got a one-stop-shop for most noob questions. Or at least most of the ones I had.

First time I saw this chart I asked why it wasn't a sticky. Nice work, mods.

I had initially planned on doing that, but there are too many variables installed like wheel width, backspacing, and different brands of control arms.

You could've asked me. This is the first time I've actually seen this

Brake line length for a short arm lift is usually Stock Length + Lift Height. For a long arm, your best bet is to measure
