    and this tires are installed on the stock wheel (original)

    BTW, do you have any comment on the installation of lifting on the original wheel, plz note that I donít care about appearance and looks.

    I will explain my car usage: first, daily & family usage(regularly). Secondly, I use it weekends in camping and desert trips. I donít do racing stuff and Iím take great care of my car.

    the important issue for me is : i installed the left ket (previously mentioned) on the original shocks (stock from chivey) red colored from the inside from what i seen. which shocks brand do you suggest me to buy for the left 3.5.

    Finally, I know itís too much to ask but I really need all the help you can provide me..

    I have a problem with the rubber front as shown in the below pictures.. I need your feedback please

    It looks as if you're having some rubbing issues is all. A small amount of trimming should fix the problem or you might even be able to crank up your torsion bars slightly.
