What makes the 12k chassis sit up so much higher than a standard M998? I know springs are different and control arms. Is the control arms mounted lower on chassis?

Most m998s have tired springs and sag more than an inch. When compared to the heavier new springs, there is quite a difference. Change a m998 front springs to the winch model and you'll notice a big difference. Change the rear perches to cast and install variable rate springs and you'll notice a big difference.

Back to Gregs build....looks good Greg. I'm going to start my rev frame soon.
