If you are refering to adding an extra 1/2" or 1" spacer to your exhisting lift then I wouldnt recommend it at all.

I've been told that major irreverseable mods need to be made where this kit attaches. True or false? Anyone have pics to share.

If your talking about using Robby's 1.5" leveling kit on an otherwise stock vehicle, there will be no issues and no worries returning to stock either.

In my discussions with Robby, he doesn't recommend using the kit in conjunction with other lift kits. This is because raising the front more than 2" requires more components than just the spacers to do it right.

Every mod is reversable. Not one mod on my jeep isnt. Well except my snorkel mod cause it would leave huge holes in my fender. But they sell new fenders for our XK's for under $50 minus the paint so I guess it could be reversable.

To those with just questions, I guess it's fine to ask on the forum.

Hey Robby, I saw a post that you were making your own kits. I tried to IM but you are full. My wife got a commander a few months ago and I'm totally interested in getting the nose up in that thing. Not for bigger tires but just for looks, at least for now. If you could send me a pic and some pricing on what you do that would be great. You can send here or email me direct at onefast96svt@yahoo.com, and thanks!

Jimmy
