Performance Lift Kits

Raise your ride for better ground clearance and bigger tires

There are many reasons to raise the height of, or “lift” a truck. Some may want to be able to fit larger wheels and tires, some may go off-roading and need the extra ground clearance, and many just like the look of a truck that towers above them.

Probably the easiest way to lift a truck is with a leveling kit. A leveling kit lifts one end of the truck to make the truck sit evenly. For example, because of the engine and other accessories, the front end of a truck may sag. A leveling kit, which may include strut extensions, coil spring spacers or torsion keys, will lift the front to make it even with the rear, and this may be all the clearance that’s needed to be able to fit larger wheels and tires.

As the name indicates, a body lift kit raises the body on the frame. The actual procedure is much more involved, but basically the body mounts are replaced with taller lift blocks. Body lift kits usually only raise the vehicle 3” at the most, but they’re perfect for someone that just wants the look of a lifted truck or wants to fit larger wheels and tires. Since the suspension isn’t touched, it’s not the right way to go if you plan on going off-road, and your ride will be a bit harsh because the lift blocks don’t have the compliance of the stock body mounts.

Give your truck a suspension lift if you’re going off-road or if you want to raise your truck more than 3”. The content of a lift kit varies according to cost, suspension design and the degree of lift provided by the kit. Coil spring and leaf spring trucks with solid axles are generally the easiest to lift, while newer trucks with independent suspension are more difficult. Coils springs are replaced with taller versions and leaf springs are either replaced or have a leaf added. Torsion bar mounts are relocated.

Some things to take into account when doing a suspension lift: Your shocks will need to be longer because of the increased suspension travel. The best lift kits include everything needed to complete the job, including all hardware and detailed instructions. At CARiD we carry only the most complete kits from the top manufacturers, so you can be assured that your installation will go smoothly. However, installing a lift kit can be quite involved and you may want to consider installation by a professional technician.

Very often we don't even realize what a crucial role a car's suspension plays in providing a safe and comfortable ride. The system maximizes the friction between the road surface and your vehicle's tires, ensuring steering stability along with responsive handling.
The very first thing to know about timely suspension system diagnosis is that the stability and steering control of your vehicle and, what is more important, your safety on the road depends on how often you make it. Automotive suspension belongs to one of those car systems that are constantly exposed to high loads and thus are prone to wear and tear. Most...

Lowering is high on the list of many people who want to improve the appearance of their car. If you want to lower your car with the coil springs, then replacing them with lowering springs is the way to go. But what if you want to lower your car and also make it handle better? If that’s your goal then consider coil-over shocks.

Easy install, I liked the look of it so far, so good, no problems, but I've heard that some blocks break with time so keeping an eye on them but as of now very satisfied.
