Awesome! Finally a decent lift that doesn't cost $$$. I'd love to get one but I'm not a fan of having to cut the differential in order to bolt on a new bracket.

Post plenty of pics once you get it on

I admit that it does scare me alittle to take a saw to something like the diff. but hopefully its worth it!

notching the diff is sort or scary. But when I put the h2b conversion kit in my civic I had to notch a pretty big section of the back of the block. just measure a lot and cut once. Should come with a template of some sort.

I ain't skeered....but then again i've been wrenching and fabricating for a long time. I actually was going to (in my very little spare time) come up with a diff drop bracket system....now i don't have to because this kit is cheap....and considering i need shocks, upper ball joints (150k on the originals), and control arm bushings, it's almost cheaper to just buy this kit.

Although I don't have the money right now anyway .......

BTW one more thing,
