Types of Suspension Lift Kits:
- Lifted Spring Suspension:
Scott’s U-Save in Schererville, IN mostly recommends this style of lifts. As well, this is a very common style of lift because it is budget friendly and keeps the vehicle riding comfortably. A lifted spring style allows for larger tires and wheels which can give a truck or Jeep the look you want.
- Coil Suspension Lift Kits:
Stepping up from the Spring suspension puts you into a very comfortable
- Shackle Suspension Lift Kits:
As probably the most affordable way to add inches to your rig, Shackle Suspension Lift Kits are primarily for the truck enthusiast looking to add larger tires, yet are not intending to do much hardcore off-roading. Moderation is recommended with these truck lift kits, as Shackle systems are known to affect steering and sway control.
- Shackle Reverse (S/R) Suspension Lift Kits:
Shackle reverse truck lift kits are designed to provide a smooth ride upon mild terrains such as forest roads, dirt roads, and scenic trails; however, high-speed driving on highways is not recommended. For that reason, you might only want this type of lift kit if you’re up fitting your second trail-only 4×4.
- Spring Over Axle (SPOA):
SPOA suspension lift kits are most popular among serious rock crawlers looking for the utmost articulation (up and down wheel travel). These truck lift kits keep the tires on the ground for maximum traction, while correctly lifted springs lift everything out of harm’s way, including the springs. These kits are most certainly only for someone who has a dedicated trail vehicle or lives on a mountain!
Suspension Lift Kit Sizes:
Small Lift Kits:
Small lift kits consist of 1.5 or fewer inches and will grant you a little more clearance and room to run slightly larger tires. The most common way to gain a small lift is by using coil spacers in front and long shackles in the rear. The best part of a smaller lift is the lower cost and they are easier to install and maintain with very few complications.
Medium Lift Kits:
A medium lift is roughly 2” of lift, and is a good choice for those looking for the best tire clearance, but aren’t planning on doing any real off-roading. Common medium-sized lifts use a spacer and add-a-leaf lifts and sometimes come with new shocks. With this size of lift kits, you’ll notice some changes in handling and performance, which are manageable, but you’ll also need strong rear springs. One drawback is if you plan to use an add-a-leaf kit, later modification for more lift may be difficult since add-a-leafs are designed to lift stock springs.
Large Lift Kits:
The largest lifts consist of 3 to 4” or more for an aggressive look and the best off-road performance. A common large lift setup consists of new front coils and add-a-leafs in the rear, plus some combination of new front coils and new rear springs. These kits often include a matching set of shocks. Large lifts are the most expensive and there can be more complications than with smaller lifts. They also require you to monitor your vehicle more. On-road performance will also be affected, sometimes dramatically, especially if installed incorrectly. Nevertheless, a large lift will transform your rig into an intimidating off-road machine that will stand out among a crowd.
LEVELING KIT & LIFT INSTALLATION IN CHICAGO
Are you looking for lift kit installation near me? If so you’ve come to the right place. From Elgin and Evergreen Park to Naperville and Coal City, you’ll see our ultimate lifted rides cruising all around Chicago.
A good suspension lift kit or leveling kit installation can make a significant difference in the look and feel of your truck or jeep. A simple body leveling kit installation might be fine if you only want the look, but if you plan on actually off-roading then you will want to upgrade to at least a lift kit or leveling kit installation. Installing a lift kit on your truck requires a mix of technical knowledge and also some regular upkeep and attention to your vehicle’s suspension.
If you are like most of our customers in the Chicagoland area then you are somewhere in the middle, although we do have some nice local off-roading spots, you want the smooth ride of a daily driver, but you go off-roading sometimes so you also want the flexibility to go 4×4’ing and off-roading in the mud bogs and the trails in the summer. It all boils down to whether you prefer style, function or a mix of the two.
If you really want to go crazy then a full suspension lift kit is the way to go. Yes, they are more expensive, but if you are putting together a show truck or if you really want to take your truck off-roading a lot then it is not a bad idea. One thing to keep in mind is the higher you go the more your trucks suspension, steering and axles change. The higher clearance from the lift kit and bigger tires also raises your vehicle’s center of gravity, which can reduce handling. Certain tires designed specifically for off-road conditions can improve traction depending on the circumstances, but the awesome tires you’ve been looking at might not be right for your application.
