I know how much genuine ones cost, I was just interested. Not that uncommon to see cars with wheels worth twice as much.

You are aware that posting things like that on a public forum is really, really stupid aren't you?

Yeaaaa, but I don't care.

I've always wondered, what exactly is the point of getting a truck lifted? It doesn't seem to improve your ground clearance either as the position of the axles don't seem to change much from stock. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Lifts clear larger tires.

 

Larger tires lift the axles.

 

And in my case, 37s are by far the best deal I'm ever going to get on tires, so I've lifted it to clear them without rubbing.

There are other ways to fit big tires though.
6f3f641c.jpg
I mean, from a purely engineering standpoint, there's better ways of fitting big tires than lifting since lifting raises the center of gravity more than just putting big tires on factory height suspensions and can f*ck up your factory suspension and steering geometry (at least on IFS stuff. It's probably harder to mess up leafs on a solid axle with crossover steering). Though it does negate the need for crossover in the first place. Even on solid axle stuff, driveshaft angles can get sh*tty and require the axle to be rotated, which can throwoff steering steering geometry, requires knuckles to be cut and turned. It kind of does open up a can of worms.

Sure, but then you run into other issues like rubbing frame or firewall. Moving the axle forward with factory IFS simply isn't a practical modification when you can throw a solid axle under it. Not to mention I have no desire to destroy the fenders on an SUV I intend on using as a DD.

 

And let's be honest, some of us just enjoy driving a taller truck. Even with my body lift and 37s I still wasn't any taller than a leveled 4x4 Super Duty. Even now I've only got 4" rear suspension lift and around 8" front. The drag link is nearly horizontal.

That 5500 on 43's runs no lift with the axle pushed forward 3" so firewall clearance isn't an issue. Frame rubbing is more an issue with wheel offset. He gets past it with dually hubs and custom stazworks in an offset of his choice. I've got a friend that runs 46" goodyears on his F350 with 12" of suspension lift )plus a 3" body) and he still rubs the frame on his 20x12's. Wheels are just the wrong offset. Needs different wheels or some bigass spacers (or both).

Move them away from the frame and you're moving them towards the firewall. Like I said not a great option with IFS. Any less suspension lift than I have now I'd have to do major trimming on the frame to clearance the axle.

 

That 5500 sits a whole hell of a lot taller than a stock 1500, and looking at the center line of the axle in relation to the body, it looks like it's got 3-4" of front lift over a stock 5500. You'd probably need a 6" lift to get a 1500 up to the same height with the same tires.

 

Sure, for an all out trail truck you don't want to lift it to the sky, but that's obviously not what I've got.

I'm pretty doubtful of that. When you get rid of the stock running boards, the top of the lug nuts looks to be about the same on stock vs big tires w/ axle pushed forward.

Just saying, from a purely functional standpoint, lower is better.

In the first stock/near stock picture you posted, the top of the lug nut appear to be level with the bottom of the body (not running board) or tuck up about an inch.

 

In the later pics, they appear to be 3-4" below the bottom of the body, and again even stock the 5500 sits a lot taller than a 1500.Ram, which even that sits taller than my Suburban did stock.

 

If it makes you feel any better, I want to run dually axles, ditch the body lift and add another 1.5-2" of suspension lift. That should give the H1s just a little bit of poke and just enough clearance to not hinder flex or steering. Only thing holding me up there is that I'm not sure what I'm going to be doing when I get rid of the 350. Pretty sure a small body lift is recommended for both Duramax and Cummins swaps.

Assuming you're not lying that's a very nice car. Tastefully modded.

 

Here's mine E46 325i.

Thanks. I want to keep it looking as original as possible. It does have aftermarket suspension, exhaust and coils, though.

Nice, i worked on one of those today....alternator failed.

I always keep my car 100% clean. I will punch those who leave a footmark on the doorstep. This is my baby <3

 

 

It's a step up from my former car: VW Jetta 90' 1.6 diesel, but I miss this one anyway :/

Is that a 2004 year A6? The lower part of the front bumper is body colored, only 04 cars have that. Unless you have painted it over or fitted a 04 one. Anyways, nice car. We had one too, a 2001 2.4l V6. Sadly it had rust problems, driver door didnt close properly and other electric problems. After we sold it, i have seen in town again, the current owner is a real douche....scratches and dents everywhere. Then again, the reason they bought the car from us was because it had an excellent Bose sound system.

It's actually a 98 model :-) thank you :-D I guess the previous owner painted that!
I love the car, such feeling of quality. Feels better than a lot of newer cars, even my dad's 2012 Golf. Luckily no rust on it yet!

Yeah I have heard about the huge number of SUVs in the states, I can't understand why they need it? Here in Norway we need them though, because of the roads and hills during the winter. But still, you can get pretty far with a normal 4wd wagon as well

Supercharged? While the cars themselves aren't that great, there's any number of decent cars out their that could benefit from that engine.

Step1: Take the motor out. 

Step 2: Mate the motor to a manual transmission of some sort. 

Step 3: Chip the motor and change the supercharge pulley. Have 300 reliable hp. 

Step 4: Put the motor in f*cking anything besides a f*cking Buick. Especially since we live in an age where we've got past how to put transverse fwd engines in rwd things flipped 90 degrees.
