    Good even gentlemen.

    I had the pleasure of installing the kit today with another hobbyist mechanic.

    First off, props to Nathan at Northwoods. He took great care of me throughout the buying process. I was a pain in the ass when purchasing due to a split payment.
    He answered all my stupid questions personally.

    The install went great at first using a compressor and air tools.
    We swapped the front struts/springs with no issues. It took us 2 hours for both sides with a rain/thunderstorm delay.

    The hassle came when removing the lower A arm bolt on the rear passenger side to do the spring.
    We had a hell of a time getting that last bolt out.
    She was seized up pretty bad. No amount of penetrating oil helped. We ended up using a riveter to hammer it out after all attempts failed.
    The bolt was still in great shape after that, so we reused it.

    The top shock mount that gives people nightmares went super smooth for us. Using a box end 17mm and ratcheting 17mm box end, it broke free quickly.

    The rear driver’s side went smooth once we knew what we needed to do.

    The lift looks great and the Rav4 handles better on road with the Bilsteins.
    I’ll report back once my new tires are fitted and an alignment is completed.

    Don’t hesitate to buy this if you’re looking for a reasonable lift.

    The suspension kit is on the RAV here in Rwanda. Because the farm here is seriously rural about 40 miles off of the pavement, in tough, tough roads. In the states we farm in the blue mountains in Oregon, and are 40 miles from the nearest grocery store, so we know tough roads, and nothing we run on in Idaho and Oregon is tougher than what we face every day in Rwanda. We almost exclusively run 70 series Land Cruisers, or Nissan Patrols. We tried a RAV once before with poor results. This suspension it made this RAV a different rig, it handled going to the farm, and handles more positively on black top too. The ride is firm, but not too much. First impression is awesome. We might get another RAV just because of the fuel economy advantage. Nice job. Thanks a lot

    this lift kit is awesome! The handling when driving is amazingly controlled. It handles curves easily on the freeway, street roads, and gravel! The handling on the freeway at high speeds make the RAV so much more fun to drive! Installation was extremely easy and it’s really nice the kit comes with instructions. The blue springs looks great under the car and they add a nice touch to the appeal of the vehicle. Definitely recommend the buy!

    I have finally and recently installed my performance suspension kit without the lift that we worked out. Been driving on it for about 5 days or so and I have to say it changed the whole car! It drives so much nicer, stiffer and sportier and don’t really have much more than that to say. I will definitely be coming back to you once I upgrade to my Gen 5 Rav4 in a couple years! My car corners so much better, drives stiffer, and my favorite… it got rid of those old suspension creaking sound. Install, for the first time ever working on the suspension of my car went fairly smoothly. Definitely took me a solid 8 or 9 hours but it looks awesome, drives awesome, and overall just is awesome! Thank you so much for all your help with this! One last question for you, since I am hoping to put a slightly bigger tire on my car at some point in the near future, if it turns out it doesn’t fit and rubs a lot then I may just get the little lift kit for it and install that.

    Been pleased with my 1 1/2″ kit with the KYB/B4 combo. The rav doesn’t dive as much in corners and holds cargo much better than it did previously. I also notice that my hitch rack for mountainbikes doesn’t scrape like it did prior to the lift. Nathan was super helpful and answered all of my questions prior to the order. Thanks!
