    I leave mine on indefinitely, it's our fridge when on the road and our garage fridge when in the garage.

    Can you please give some more details on this install? Did the mount come with the breaker? If so, what brand? How did you bolt the mount to the underside of the armrest lid? Would like to do this. Thank you.

    Installed 6112s up front. Ordered the 6112/ 5160 package from Underdog Motorsports. They shipped the wrong struts initially. They said they'd work, but some research indicated they were for a 4th gen. And while they would "probably work" they did not have "lean" correction and apparently the lower shock bushing is narrower than the 5th gen so you'd have to squeeze the mount to get it tightened. I didn't want to chance it so I requested a replacement with the correct ones. They immediately shipped them out and paid to have the first ones returned. Great service.

    Only a couple small snags during the installation, but was otherwise very easy. I need to adjust my headlights now as I was blinding people on the test drive tonight.

    Quick measurement shows about 2" of lift. Passenger side is about 1/2" taller than driver's side but I'll see how it settles over time. I'll tackle the rear tomorrow.

    Installed an oil catch can today. Wanted to use the forward bolt on the engine cover for the bracket (red arrow), but as luck would have it, the bolt is seized in the nutsert, so it just spins and spins. Improvised with a bracket I got at Lowes, and mounted it to the upper bolt that holds the oil fill tube. Barely know it's there with the engine cover on. Hose off the PCV valve (blue arrow) goes to the inlet side of the catch can, outlet hose (yellow arrow) goes to the intake manifold. Used 3' of 3/8" hose, and reused the pinch clamps from the OEM hose.

    Looks good. Thought about doing the same to my SO. If don’t mind what did they charge you? Was it done in NJ? My only concern is the black always showing the dirt but it won’t happen since you had the Xpel wrap over it. My fully wrapped C7 Z06 is black and it don’t show no dirt. It does after quite a while.

    I used this one from Amazon. Got the 3' of hose from a local auto parts store, that was about $10. You'll need an angle bracket to space it away from the engine, the one I got from Lowe's was about $4. You'll also need a small bolt (5 or 6mm) and nut to attach the catch can bracket to the angle bracket. All in I think is a little under $35.

    Installed the 5160 rear shocks and springs. Posted below - rough increase in height with the 6112 (set to 6 and 4 circlip position- measured from the bottom up) / 5160 combo. Told the vendor I was not adding any weight. Specs say this position of the circlips would add 2" of lift. For the rear, the vendor sent the B12 "Special" springs. These are spec'd to add approx 1" lift.

    Front +2 3/8" (equal both sides). R. Rear- +1 1/8", L. Rear +1.5"

    OEM spring on Right:

    Working by myself, I had to get creative on the driver's side to press the axle down far enough get the spring in. In hindsight, I could have tried to jack up the passenger side.

    Glass breaker tool was similar to these tool on Amazon. IMG_2027.jpg

    I then removed the plastic inside of the armrest and drilled 2 holes for the bolts. Video of how to remove armrest is here and installed bracket with the m6 and m4 bolts. I picked the bolts up at a local hardware store.

    Looking good! Let's see the stance. I'm running similar and really like how mine sits. I used a spring compressor on drivers side rear. Like you, I was working by myself. Great job on your install!

    Got my Wescott Designs modular roof rack installed. I am coming from full size steel basket and was hoping for improved wind drag. The WD, Sherpa and Prinsu all look similar and solid racks with good reviews. I went with the optional floor plates which I don't think anyone on the forum is using. Hoping these work out allowing me to use it as a low profile mini basket strapping dry bag down.

    Timing worked out perfect and we found the Lexus IS 500 color combo we have been looking for 400 miles away. Jumped in the 4r and did a 800 mile round trip driving to get it testing highway speed and leaks (torrential downpours while trip).

    I can say for me going low profile helped with highway speeds using cruise and maintaining 75 to 80 mph. With the old rack, lift, weight etc it was constantly gear hunting at highway speeds.
