One more, at the alignment shop & before I washed it. A fair amount of clearance.  8)

My lift is installed!
For some reason I can't attached pictures on this thread, and, photobucket is down... again.
Pictures soon.

For the record Low Range sourced 2" spacer lift, Doestch struts, Pro Comp shocks, 1" wheel spacers and tame 225/75-15 Cooper tires. The ride is smooth.

21 mpg so far, not bad for slightly larger tires & 160k miles. And thats in hilly and city driving. My lift goes on this Wednesday - seems like I have been waiting forever...

So, whats left... Lift, roof rack (maybe) and a towbar/braking setup for being a tow vehicle. I got it cheap and I would like to keep it on the cheap.

For anyone deliberating tire size, the 225/75-15 tires work good! Don't need to hold yourself to 215/75-15. I chose light tires which couldn't hurt.
My speedo is even more accurate than before. FYI YMMV WTF  >:D

225/75-15's are on! To the untrained eye not much difference. To me they fill in the wheelwell more. And when the 2" lift goes on, I feel the car will look very close to stock still.
Fine with me - kind of a sleeper and not a second notice.
I hope to not destroy this car with too huge of tires and over lifting it. Sort of like a level on a pickup truck...

Before... (215/70-15, 26.9")



And after (28.05")

More progress on my Tracker. Refurbished actuator pump in and no more flashing 4wd light. Yay
Swaybar links & bushings have been replaced so and no more clunking in the front. 225/75-15 tires have been ordered.
Working with LoRange to get my correct parts...
Guess I'm just documenting for future Trackers searches...  :-\

Well I might get chastised for this but I believe I have my tire decision. My little Tracker will just be a slightly beefed up vehicle. Slightly taller tire and a slightly taller suspension.
Not mud terrain, not all terrain, but an all season tire. I will have the tires siped also.

Cooper Trendsetter SE in the 225/75-15. This tires spec height is 28.05". A small 225/75-15. Thats it!

And the actuator pump.

Even a clean Tracker needs parts...  ;D

I have a boat load of parts in the garage for our Tracker. Struts, shocks, spring spacers & wheel spacers, alignment bolts, plus I have a refurbished actuator pump in hand also.
Also I have a receiver hitch for carrying our bicycles when the Tracker is being pulled.
And of course my tire size selection is still being mulled over (as in my other thread)... a 'big' 215/75-15 or a 'smaller' 225/75-15. LOL anal I know. :-\
Gonna be an interesting end of February!

I catch your drift (no pun intended) FORDEM. More negatives than positives unhooking the sway bar. I will keep it hooked up and see how our little Tracker works.
Its just city/country usage car when it gets pulled around anyhow.
