Depends, do you have the stock dog bones/lines or does the ones on there have a hole for the stock height?

If you can swing it by and I can look at it.

to raise a bike you need a good set of moral values and calm and assertive firm but fair attitude.. ensuring the bike is raised right
some people dont raise their bikes this way thats the reason our country is the way it is.

at least someone understood the question


im over by hobby, the only problem is that im without a truck atm so i couldnt bring it by. my brother totaled my ram and my dad is out of town, he works on the railroad, with his silverado. i thought about renting a trailer, but i dont think my rx8 would like that much.

Srry for the jack was kidding I raised my f4i FRONT end only in a parking lot thats how easy it was the rear though their correct sounds like you need stock dog bones unless your lowering links are adjustable then you can try the highest setting( also pretty easy just need a floor jack or pump jack)
