Default Jake's G1 '82 newer lift question

Finally working through this install. As noted before, the instructions/pics are pretty poor and not a lot of info online. I've got the front a-arms replaced, new ball joints and steering arms in place. The ball joint seems to be very close to the tire, like 1/8". Since I can't find photos, is this normal or do I need different wheel/tire, etc? 22X11X12. Jake's recc. 22X11X10 wheel but doubt the wheel difference matters. If anyone has links to good pics, let me know. Thanks!

As long as the tie rod doesn't rub you should be fine.

I just finished installing my G1 lift and I ran into some issues..
front install went good but the rear not so much. after installing the rear lift kit that backend of the car sits up so high that the clutch bell housing is crashing into the frame, I pull the rear lift kit out and put back to stock, no issues.
so I bought 20x10x12 I know the kit recommends 22x11x10 but rims are not my issue here.
I took the shocks out, put the rear lift back in and cut 2 square tubes at 8" long and that's the max I can lift up the rear sub frame without the bell housing crashing into the frame.
what's the deal with my lift kit, any ideas or anyone run into the same issue?
its the jakes 5" from buggies unlimited

Any pics?

I've used several Jakes kits on different carts, never had a problem. If I'm not mistaken, the Jakes rear setup is just a spacer that bolts to the top shock mounts that extend the top mount lower, in your case 5" lower.

With that said, most of us with the G1 had to dent in our frame. You have to heat up the frame where the clutch makes contact, then use a large sledge hammer and give it a few whacks. Repeat to make a bigger dent.

Some clutches clear, others don't. Usually you have to make the frame modification to clear it.

Btw, probably should start your own thread. We call this "hijacking" lol
