re: The NEW Complete Lift Listing and Comparison, They're All Here! UPDATED!

All of those top plate bolt on spacer lifts should have a disclaimer next to them, stating "this product lengthens your front shock beyond the reach of the front bump stop, blown out front shocks will occur with common off road use, shock stems may fail in extreme situations, upper control arm ball joints will contact springs in extreme situations. Torn CV boots or broken CV joints may occur if used in conjunction with after market front upper control arms."

Lifting does not remove the body mount from the path the tire takes through the wheel well. Lifting does not move that path around the body mount. Lifting only sets the starting point of that path partially below the body mount giving the illusion of clearance. Only alignment can change that path, otherwise clearance is all body mount chop and BFH.
