Ok. So I know I'm going to get sum WTF and you should not be doing that but it works better then you think. I know that you can buy lift kits for cheap on eBay but I'm the kind of guy that likes to make things if I can. this lift gave me 1 3/4" (44.45mm) of lift. I used Vulcanized rubber, to put it more Canadian hockey pucks. the time I took to make the lift and put it on was around 3 hours. I used 4 pucks a 2 1/2" ( 64mm) hole saw and a 1 3/4"(44.45mm) hole saw. First I used the 2 1/2" then the 1 3/4 to cut the centre out. after that I pulled the shocks took it a part slid it over. put the shock back together and back on the bike. look I used the pucks because they got some give but not a lot. this will help if I hit a bad bump. I took the bike out for a good shack down and found it was a bit smoother then before. the measurements are off the back off the frame. this was done with stuff I had kicking around. if you had to buy the pucks it would be $7 Canadian.

No problems with that at all.

I've seen typical Sch40 PVC pipe used in the same fashion.

Ride on!

Good idea with the pucks. I ended up using some Cam Lock fittings on mine that I just cut down to length. I've got hockey pucks stacked up to get the correct bump stop length on my Jeep. Use what you've got.
