It's fine to say drive a stock height car on a nice smooth track but do that on most 4wd tracks & you get damage underneath while you learn. Then there's the rutted entry/exit onto most beaches, the...

Can confirm raised springs & 1" spacers are fine for the CVs. You'll also need 2" trailing arm spacers to keep the rear wheels centred. Feel free to PM me for details :)
