SUSPENSION LIFT KITS & TIPS

TRUCKVIDEOS.NET SUGGESTIONS

Suspension lift kits raise a vehicle’s suspension and functionality, as we all know. This is done by having the front and the rear leaf springs plus the shocks of the vehicle replaced. This type of vehicle add-on creates greater suspension articulation and travel. Moreover, it allows the vehicle to accommodate tires that are significantly taller. Having taller tires means that there will be a significant increase in clearance between the ground and the vehicle’s axles. Having a good kind of suspension lift kits also improves the articulation, although this affects the steering geometry, causing “bump steer.” To reduce this negative effect, some opts to add on steering stabilizers.

However, adding such suspension blocks on your vehicle’s rear suspension may cause “axle tramp” or the axle vibration under the vehicle’s acceleration. Your vehicle’s driveline angles may become affected. Remember that it is not advisable to have suspension blocks added on your front suspension.
