TRUNK RELOCATION KIT

Has anyone installed a trunk relocation kit, which allows you to move the trunk back and forth in half-inch increments ? If so do you like it ?

I had one on my 84 Aspy for about 5 yrs or so. I took it off last year because when someone leans back on it , it puts more stress on the bottom where it is bolted and just cracked the heck out of the bottom of the trunk. to the point where I had to replace it . So i'll do with out it :evil:

I put one on about a month ago. It seems to be pretty solid, and gives my wife another 3 inches. Doesn't sound like a lot, but it allows her to be comfortable while I have my back rest all the way back. Haven't noticed any strain on the trunk, but I'll keep my eyes on it.

I got this one from Wingstuff.com
