Are you looking to take your truck to new heights? Many consumers come to us for help with their lift kits. You can trust our experts at Custom Car Stereo to provide you the best industry advice for the size of your lift kit and tires. We customize every lift kit to an individual consumer’s vehicle.
Lift Kits and Sizing
Before deciding on what size lift kit you want, it is important to consider where you’ll be driving. Will you be taking your vehicle on both the road and trail? If you will be using your vehicle on the trail, your vehicle will require more modifications. However, if you will only be using your vehicle on the road, you’ll have to consider it’s ability to brake, corner, and maneuver on asphalt.
Suspension lift kits come in a variety of sizes:
- Small lift kits: 1.5” or less. These allow you to run slightly larger tires without breaking the bank or requiring vehicle modifications.
- Medium lift kits: Around 2”. These kits give you optimal tire clearance but are not used for off-roading. Medium lift kits may require spacers, shocks and more. They also change the way a vehicle handles.
- Large lift kits: 3” or more. These produce a more aggressive lifted look. A common lift setup consists of front coils, add-a-leaf, plus a combination of new front coils and new rear springs. The large lift kits are the most expensive but provide the most height, allowing your vehicle to stand above the crowd on the road.
Some customers get the best results by choosing the tires they want first, and the appropriate suspension to support them. We will research the manufacturer’s recommended lift size and tire size, so you can make an informed decision that balances aesthetic and performance.
