if you are talking about the kit that is being sold by J LeBel and are being sold for around $65. don't waste your time. i purchased the kit from him and when i received it i was extremely disappointed in the craftsmanship. the design is good but it really needs a thorough look structurally. i will not put this product on my vehicle and it will be getting sent back. the welds were not good at all. the penetration was horrible and the welds themselves were gapped and you can see through the two pieces that are supposed to be welded. the mounting studs were not centered and i don't believe they would even fit through the holes on the car i would not recommend this product

I have to disagree with the post above me. I have mine installed, you can see it in my signature. Worked out well and I installed it myself so I know how everything fit, which was well. However, my friend did comment on the weld job, (he welds) and said it wasn't very good, although it was fine for what I was using it for.

So, I've tried searching ebay using a variety of different key words (ford escape leveling kit, leveling spacers, J Lebel...etc. etc.) and still the only thing even close that comes up is the Canuck springs...what gives...where are these mysterious spacers?

Kennedy, from you sig pic it looks like the front end is actually a bit higher than the rear...or at least there seems to be more empty wheel well showing...is that the case, or just my eyes playing tricks from the camera angle?

In person, it is a tad bit higher. But from the camera angle, your eyes are just playing tricks on you. :lol:

I was thinking of buying a set of these but his shipping destinations are the US and Australia only. ... No shipping to Canada that I can see

Kennedy,...How was this to install? Any related problems or issues I should watch for? What about headlight aim, driveability? How's she handle?...First impressions after install> I bought a pair, just waiting for a chance to install, was it a difficult job>

Thanks,...Joe
