scorpion lift question
I was wondering from anyone that has installed the scorpion lift kit into their baja, how did it affect the handeling and ride? Is the ride still confortable and smothe? Or has the it become hard and ridgid?

I have Scorpion rear springs on our '96 OB. They give about 1-1/2" more height including differential clearance but at the expense of suspension down travel (or is it up?). We upgraded to KYB GR-2 struts at the same time.
The springs and struts are quite a bit stiffer than stock, and can be harsh on concrete freeways. I haven't noticed any sensation of topping out the suspension.
For the price, I think just the taller springs ($360 for the set of four from www.isrperformance.com ) is a good move. Labor is the same as replacing the struts, probably an hour each.
The full lift kit is much more money and the labor is much more involved.
I didn't do it, but would suggest a larger anti-sway bar to compensate for the higher center of gravity.
