Anti lift kit and cusco K brace

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

 

Has anyone fitted a whiteline anti lift kit with a cusco front K brace on a GC8?

 

I have tried to fit mine but due to the angle the anti lift kit puts on the control arm, the k brace hits the control arm before you can bolt it down properly. Just wondering if anyone has any tips or has tried this.

 

Cheers

I have both an Anti Lift Kit and a Cusco K brace on my GC8.

 

I initially used a washer to space down the rear mount enough to clear. I later revisited the issue, bolted it down without the washer and just bent the K brace a small amount with a pry bar so it had clearance. The issue only occurs at full suspension droop so there really doesn't need to be much clearance as this only happens when the wheels are off the ground.

 

Here is a photo of my initial solution but I think bending the K brace slightly is a tidier result. I don't have a photo post bend but I can get under the car and take one if you still aren't sure.

Ok that is interesting. I would be interested to see photos of how it is now. I had my cat sitting on blocks when I tried to fit the k brace and it didnt look like it was going to be even close to bolting up.

Looks like I still have one thin washer and you can see the slight bend in the k brace. This is at ride height and you can see there is heaps of clearance. At full droop there is less clearance but I made sure there is still some.

The marks on the control arm are not from contact they are from when I used the pry bar.
