You may want to be able to fit larger wheels and tires, or you may want to go off-roading and need the extra ground clearance, and then again you may just want to drive a vehicle that towers over ordinary cars. There’s no doubt that a lifted truck has a commanding presence. There are several ways to lift a truck and lift kits come in sizes indicating how much the truck will be raised. In general, the higher you want to go, the more elaborate the lift kit.

If your truck has a “nose down” attitude because of the weight of the engine or accessories you’ve added, you may just need a leveling kit to get the tire clearance and stance you want. Most trucks have plenty of room between the rear tire and fender, and having the same gap in the front can make the truck look like it’s been lifted. Leveling kits are affordable and easy to install. Visit our leveling kits page to see what we have for your rig.

A body lift kit is another easy way to get clearance for larger 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 2-3”, but they’re perfect for someone that just wants the look of a lifted truck or wants to fit larger tires. It’s not the right way to go if you plan on going off-road, because the suspension isn’t touched, however your truck should retain its factory ride and handling characteristics.

If you need more clearance between the ground and the underside of your truck for off-roading, or you want to raise your truck more than 3”, install a suspension lift. Suspension lifts are available in mild 1-2” lifts up to 6-8” or even higher. The components included in a kit will vary according to suspension design and the height of the lift. In general, coil spring vehicles will get taller coil springs, leaf spring vehicles may get replacement springs, additional leaves, blocks, shackles, or some combination of the above. Torsion bar trucks use re-indexed torsion bar keys and for tall lifts relocate the torsion bars.

Small lifts of 1-1.5” may only require coil spring spacers and/or leaf spring shackles. As lifts get higher longer shocks are required and may be included, depending on the kit. As lift heights get taller, more suspension modifications are required, and in addition to springs and shocks kits can include components like control arms/links, steering knuckles, spindles, crossmembers, radius arms, drop pitman arms, etc. Whichever kit you choose, you can be assured that it’s been designed to meet the performance requirements of your specific application, and engineered by a manufacturer that specializes in off-road suspension systems.

    How much lift is needed for larger tires on my 2007-up Jeep Wrangler?
    Twenty years after the first Jeep Wrangler model debuted in 1987, third-generation Wranglers were introduced for the 2007 model year. Unlike any previous Wranglers or CJs, a 4-door Unlimited model (known internally as the "JKU" body) was offered alongside the standard 2-door ("JK" body). Because it took the off-road capability Wranglers are known for and broadened it with the practicality of 4 doors for those needing a family vehicle, third-generation Wranglers have proven very successful in the marketplace. Maintaining Jeep tradition, this Wrangler appeals by offering a higher-than-average number of advantages for the 4x4 enthusiast, whether it's used for rock crawling or as an everyday driver.

    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.

    How Low Can You Go?
    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.
