I know how everyone loves see pictures so here we go.
09 CC SE 2WD
PRG 2" Front Spacer and 1" Rear Block
Now all I need is tires, they will come as soon as the stockies wear out.

How many miles are on it? I sold my stockers for $300 easy and put toward some new meats. I figured what was the point in wearing them out if I didnt like them and could sell them for a decent amount.

Well, I ended up getting new wheels and tires anyway.
Wheels - 20" MB Gunner 6 Tires - Cooper Zeon LTZ 275/60/20 (33")
I have some minor rubbing that I will be taking care of this weekend with the dremel tool. Enjoy.

Nice job. I am debating on buying this lift and you post makes it easier to make my mind up since our trucks are pretty much the same.

Looks nice ... two questions:

1). Did you have to do an alignment after the lift install?
2). Did you install the bump stops or have you noticed an increase in UCA contact since the lift?

Thanks

1 - Yes, I took it to a local shop to have it aligned after install.
2 - I did install the bump stops, I haven't noticed any uca contact with the lift. Only had it installed a week though.

I like your wheel and tire choice.

I ran Greg's 2 inch spacer and 1 1/2 inch block for a while before adding the 4
inch spindles. The only time I get any contact is when I go over speed bumps too fast. I took mine to the dealer for alignment and had to buy the cam bolts. That was 2 years ago and I have no complaints. PRG products are top notch.

that's a nice selection. everything looks great together. wheels, tires, lift....

i'm planning on a similar setup. i was wondering how the 33's and a mini lift would work out. i was afraid there would be a lot of rubbing.
if you don't mind, take some before and after shots of how much plastic you had to dremel out. i don't think i'm the only one that would like to see that.
keep it up

I'll post pics tonight of the work before and after, and thanks for the compliments. I spent many hours reading the forums before making my selections.

Thanks for the post and I agree it looks great! I am about to add the PRG 2" mini lift myself and this just makes it easier to go ahead with the purchase!

About to do the PRG mini lift with the 2inch front and 1.5 inch rear blocks.

Question about the kit though, noticed that the front spacers are like 1.25 inches thick and that the rear block is 2 inches thick.

Is that correct? Unsure why the rear blocks are 2 inches thick and not 1.5 inches thick.

Thanks.

My kit had the spacer at 1.25" thick, it generates 2" of lift due to the change in ratios in your stock suspension. I requested a 1" rear lift and got a 1" thick block. You are correct, your rear block should be 1.5" if you ordered the standard mini lift.

Thanks for the info, guess I need to call PRG and see if they will switch out the 2 inch blocks for a 1.5 inch set.

My stock height is 0.5 higher in the rear. So that would make it level. Though is it better to have an extra 0.5 inch height in the rear?

Never done spacers before, came from the Jeep world where its just replacing full leaf packs.

Well, here are the pics from today. 99% rubbing gone. It only rubs when there is some serious wheel flex combined with tire being at that perfect angle, but normal driving around town and in parking lots is 100% gone. I had to do a little more than I first thought though. I cut the plastic away, and ended up doing a little grinding on the fender, just because I am anal and didn't want to take any chances on my tire rubbing the metal on the fender when I peeled back the plastic. The first side took forever getting it just right by taking a little off then test, and repeat. The second side took only about 10 minutes to get it right since I virtually copied what I did on the first side. Now all I have to do is make a decision on whether or not to cover the hole, you don't even notice it if your not looking for it. By the way, a good box blade does way better than the dremel did.

I can tell a difference in handling, not much, but it is there. I don't know if its attributed to the lift or larger wheels and tires. But no clunking or noises with the 2" front spacer. The only thing I have is a little more rubbing. I think the plastic has relaxed a little after my inital trimming, cause it started to rub a little again after a week or so.

I just installed the PRG 2"front/1.5"back mini lift and don't notice any difference in handling. Just my 2 cents. I get a pretty loud ca-thunk when I hit speed bumps over 20mph though, that wasn't there in the past. I guess i'll just slow down.
