    body lift?

    Ive got a zr5 that I want to body lift 2" but I can't find it in my heart to drop $200.00 on a kit how hard is it to make my own?
    Do I need to lengthen anything? (Brake lines, steering etc.)
    Also how hard is it to make the front and rear bumper brackets.?

    Homemade body lifts are pretty straight forward all you need is hockey pucks drill a hole in the center and bolt them in with longer bolts of course. Depending on how much you add you can get away with all the stock lines to a point most lines have flex points(not for sure on the ZR1 I have only done this mod on full size trucks). As for making raise brakets for you bumpers I would split them in half them bolt or weld a piece of plate steel Z shaped for the lift required. I hope this helpd a bit.
