My brumby's got a 2" lift, but it needs another inch in the front I reckon.

yeah i had a chat to a mechanic today bout a lift and he rekons thats any thing higher than 2 is illegal.... and its alot harder to insure it. as any lifts done, the insurance company screams.
also he has quoted me a price for it of $700
is that reasonable or am i getin ripped? i have kno idea on such things

$400 to $500 for a brand new kit. So $800 is a decent price if you want it fitted. But fitting your own stuff is the best way to learn how it all works. Building it all yourself is the next step.

Didn't think lift kits where hard to make...just some 2" blocks of metal, some long bolts, a way to extend the brake lines, and the steering shaft...right?
