Looks fine to me

Lift a jeep without change tire and ground clearance keep same

If you doesnt want a good alligment and stock feeling to drive .. Remove subframe spacer, change arm rest for taller and ajustable rear table $$$$

Try 245-65-17 and this tire give you more "clearance"

What is your minimal clearance with your 245-65-17 tire? It looks like if I spend another $1200 on tires and wheels the most I could possibly get is another 1/2 inch of ground clearance. It looks like I could have done the same with the just the tires and wheels without purchasing the kit since the kit does not lift the sub frame.
When you measure your ground clearance from the lowest hanging parts of your car, are you seeing any more than the stock 8.7 inches? I do not.

you are very funny haha

Lift a car gives not just "ground clearance"... This improves the angle of attack, the space between the full underside of the vehicle except the diff back like a jeep...

you know how a jeep is done? LoL

I dont know how the liftkit cost you 1200$ ????? Its very sample to install ...

I showed 2 different garages your instructions and both gave me estimates of installation $500 including alignment. The final cost was $445.
I am just saying that when a customer calls, you should be truthful and tell them that it will not increase the minimum ground clearance. it only slightly raises the sides and bumpers about an inch. I can see where that may help rock climbing and such but I did ask the specific ground clearance question when I ordered.

it is written black on white in the information kit

Multi links spacers
These spacers lowers the rear subframe of the car to keep the original alignment specifications and optimizes the vehicle's handling. In addition they help to maintain the original positioning of the rear wheels. Which is very useful to prevent rubbing when using larger diameter tires.

Could you tell me where you are measuring that 9.5 ground clearance? It can't be at the axles.
