1" front lift?

I remember a couple threads some time back on people researching the possibility of just doing a front lift of about 1" to level the commander. I pulled them up but diddnt find any resolution. I've been off the board for several months, and was wondering if anyone got resolve on this?

The little (very) Off Roading I will do with my Commander will be Beach and some trail to get to bike/hiking trails, so no need for a full lift, but I want to replace the stock tires with a better/high performance all season tire. I want to go wider, so will do spacers and would prefer a little lift in the front. IT isnt necessary, and the "rake" doesnt look bad, but I'd like to if it is possible.

Others will have to direct you to my original posts [ I don't know how] but I have completed a 1" version of same.
Interest has been high enouph to make me believe it is marketable.
I am currently performing destructive testing on the upper mount to satisfy myself that the system will not compromise your vehicle.
I am about 2 weeks away from introduction.
You can read about my initial design by looking up the title, Attitude Adjustment.
If you wish, I can send photos of the 1" version and installed appearance on my Commander.
P.M. Me with your e-mail add. if desired.

..........Rob

A 1" front spacer lift is very popular with the 4Runner crowd as well. There are hundreds of 4Runner owners using them without any issues. The lift is nothing more than a 1/2" aluminum spacer that is situated on top of the coil spring. Due to suspension geometry, a 1/2" spacer nets exactly 1" of lift.

TR4Runner - This sounds like a possible option. Any Idea if or where available for the Commander? Thanks

Are you sure this info is accurate. The only reason I ask is because the BDS lift spacers were exactly 2 inches up front and when installed I gained exactly 2 inches. So I don't understand how a 1/2 spacer will give you 1 inch of lift.
