Installed the raw kit today. I didn't do the torsion bars because I ran out of time. The original pins came out easy and I was able to reuse them. Got about 35-40mm in the rear. I was expecting a little more. Original shocks were done and wouldn't even rebound when compressed. Rides heaps better now. Pretty happy for the money. Will do the torsion bars when I get time.

Sounds about right probably. How many k's does it have on it? Mine came up probably at least 3 inches from where it was in the rear, but it is a 2010 with about 65k km on when I did the springs and a good 300ish kg in the tub. I also went with the constant load springs which from memory are a 5 leaf...

It's done 70000km. I went for medium springs as I don't have a constant load in it.

Sounds about right height wise without carrying a lot of weight. What measurement have you got from the bottom of the rim to the bottom of the guard?

Driver side 770mm.
Passenger 760mm.
That was just after I installed them. I'm thinking they will settle a little.

I'm installing my kit next weekend, so i'll report back and let you know what lift I get in the back. I also went the medium load as I only carry about 80kg in the tub full time and then only goes up to about 150kg when camping... I was hoping it would go up by about 50mm but we'll see how we go after hearing how yours only went 35-40mm.

It really depends how sagged the old ones are. His only being a 2012 model, especially not carrying much weight will not have sagged a lot. I will measure mine this arvo. This is a pic of the clearance that I took a couple of weeks ago. Tub weight hasn't changed, but I will throw the tape measure on today just to see what they have settled to.
I should also add, that's with 265/75 tyres...

Measured them tonight, 765mm left and right bottom of rim to bottom of guard. That's with 3/4 tank of fuel plus 300ish kg at least in the tub.

I have measured again this morning and over the weekend the rear has settled to 765mm left and right bottom of rim to bottom of guard.
I haven't had any weight in it yet but hopefully it stays were it is. I will be disappointed if it gets much lower.

Just installed my kit today. I am also concerned about the height I got in the back... Seems to be sitting at 750-755 from bottom of rim to bottom of guard, so I didn't even get what you guys have gotten out of yours... The kit was advertised as 50mm lift but I only got 35mm higher than my sagged stock leaves which only makes it about 20mm bigger than a stock one... People on here with other springs seem to get about 770-780mm... Will see how they go over the next few weeks though. The ride from the new shocks though is great. My stock ones also had no rebound left...
