Looking super great.

What's the deal with the motor mounts? I didn't replace mine when I did the HRG lift, should I have?

Also, what size tires? I haven't seen anyone with BFG KO2 and 3" lift.
Thanks. After the lift I had a mean shimmy in the front end. I found the mounts while searching for suggested solutions to the problem so did them as a precaution along with the lowering kit. Not sure they were necessary but the problem is solved. The tires are 235/70/R16s on the stock wheels.

Thanks! I went straight with the subframe spacers along with the lift and haven't had any issues. I won't bother with the motor mounts unless something bad happens.

Dope! I'm looking to do something like this, but worried about lifting 2". After reading many posts, mostly old ones, I've gotten analysis paralysis. Would you mind sending a detailed list of everything you added to your E and maybe approximate cost for it? I have a mechanic that'll help install it, but I'm not 100% sure I know what to get. I need new struts now so I want to do it all at the same time. Thanks!

I just bought and installed this: https://www.hrgengineering.com/product-page/honda-element-3-76mm-lift-kit-with-subframe-spacers

If you want to go 2" only then get this: https://www.hrgengineering.com/product-page/copy-of-honda-element-2-50mm-lift-kit

The kit includes everything you need and instructions. I did it myself. Pretty easy.

I'll have to dig around but yes. I'll get it to you. It was a costly project, but I am very happy with the outcome.

These are the bits I bought. I also removed the step-side bars which are for sale if anyone's interested.
