I'm currently in the process of buildin an IRS 450ES with around 8" of lift.
I'm using a Rincon rear diff, rear brake system and Rincon lower sub frame.
I got it mounted Saturday and pretty much finished it this evening. I'm now going to start building rear A arm brakets and rear A arms.
I have 1/2" rod ends (heim joints) to mount the A arms to the frame.
I got the Rincon parts off of Ebay and am doing the metal fab work myself.
I'll try and put more current pic's in this week.

i love to see what different setups people come up with with the irs. right before my tranny went out i was in the process of making a longer swing arm and lifting it that way to keep it a SRA. keep us posted on this and get some pics.

I think I've looked at every single bike out there with a custom lift a few times to try and decide what I wanted to do.
I thought about the sirs too butt I went with doing it this way.
Thanks for the link.

i good trick for custom frame fab that saved me alot of cut busted fingers and time. go online and find premade weld-on tabs and hemi joint spacers from offroad frame shops. i think i must of wasted hours and hours making tabs and grinding fishmouths out, and trying to find the center for drilling the hole, just to save $35 in tabs . i didnt know you could buy a bag of them online. good-luck
