Homemade lift kit

Hey guys, I just got a 300 FW and I don't like how low the front end sits so im going to build a lift kit,mabey just the front, but if its front and back the quad will sit level, unless that messes up the 4wd. I wouldn't know?
Sorry for the water on the camera lense.
The paint drawing in the first pic roughly shows how it would look up front.
The second photo shows the metal before it is bent around to go onto the shock mount

Just put a longer travel shock in place of your old ones, your way is by far less expensive but as stated make it sturdy and SAFE

I downloaded the instillation instructions of the highlifter bracket lift. They have a illustrated parts list in the pdf, blew it up and measured till it was 2" and traced it on paper, got some scrap metal and made the lift lol. nice and cheap!
