Does anyone have pics of their bike lowered with the eBay lowering kit? I'm considering buying it but I want to see how much ground clearance was lost. Thanks in advance.

I run the cfm front lowering kit and rear link fliped. You will lose between 2 and 3 inches of ground clearance. I will try to take some pics and post later

I did a 700 rear link and shock swap that lowered it some but not as much as flipping the rear link. It also adds a couple inches of rear travel too.

Yeah. I don't like the wheel or suspension spacers because it completely changes the geometry. The mounts/components are designed for a certain amount of stress and by adding spacers you are increasing the forces. IMO it would be better just to save your money and look for a set of used wider a arms/axle. I've found do it right the first time or you will just end up spending double later.
