Weldtech lift kit for Ford Transit

Came across this on Weldtech's site.

I'd upload a photo, but our forum doesn't seem to recognize the *.jfif format.

The all-new Ford Transit 2” Lift Kit is here!

The WeldTec Designs Ford Transit RWD “Coastal Cruiser” 2″ Suspension Lift Kit will give your van a completely new look. When it came to designing this kit, we knew we wanted more articulation from the lower control arms. In order to accomplish this, we designed a new lower control arm, which uses a 7/8 heim to allows for 10″ of articulation. This boxed lower arm also keeps the factory track width, unlike other kits which narrow it by using OEM modified arms. To correct the camber and achieve 2” of lift we designed a 2-piece 6061 billet aluminum shock spacer, which gives you the option to use your OEM shock or run an aftermarket one. Lastly, we all want bigger tires, which are great for the trails or highways. This kit allows you to run up to 265x70x17 tire (trimming is necessary to fit). The “Coastal Cruiser” lift kit is the perfect addition for your Ford Transit build.

***Vehicle pictured does not have rear lift***

TECH NOTES:
Tire sizes vary between manufactures and this kit does REQUIRE trimming the lower front bumper as well as the pinch weld and plastic on the door side. At full steering lock the wheel may rub the sub frame which can be eliminated by running a 3/16 thick wheel spacer.

Key Points:
Fully Fabricated Lower Control Arms
2-Piece 6061 Billet Coil Lift/Camber Correction Spacers
2” of Suspension Lift
Increased Wheel Articulation
Maintains Factory Track Width
More Clearance for Larger Tires
Powder Coated Finish
Made in the USA

I am tracking this setup as my Quadvan Transit has 2in of lift built into the spindle and the only thing keeping me from going up more is the lower control arm angle/length.
I really hope this would correct that and let me lift the van a bit more.

Quigley also is now selling a 2” lift kit for Transits. Field Vans is the west coast installer. I think.

Here is a link to the Quigley webpage for the lift kit. Newberg Ford in OR is also listed as well as Vandoit "doing" them on their conversions.
