What Motivates You: Lift Kits vs Leveling Kits
If you’re dipping your feet into the world of lift and leveling kits for the first time, you probably have some questions. We’ll do our best to answer them on this page. One of the most common questions asked is why a driver should install a lift kit or leveling kit. In brief, there are two motivating factors. These are:
A lift kit raises the entire body of your vehicle and allows you to enjoy greater off-road performance. While the height increase alone creates a distinct look, a lift kit also allows you to install large tires and wheels. With many custom wheels and off-road tires on the market, a whole new world of customization and performance options opens with a lift kit.
A leveling kit fixes a problem common in many trucks: one end being higher than the other. This is intentional by manufacturers and known as the factory rake. The rear is higher than the front in anticipation of what you’ll be hauling in the bed. However, not everyone likes this uneven stance. If you find yourself nosediving often, a leveling kit might meet your needs.
Lift Kits: Where Performance & Style Meet
About Lift Kits
In brief, here’s what you need to know about lift kits:
- Raise your suspension system
- Consist of a system of springs and shocks
- Suspend the body of your vehicle so you can add large tires and wheels
- Allow greater undercarriage clearance
Suspension lift kits are normally intended for off-road vehicles traversing muddy, rocky, and mountainous terrain. Drivers who want their vehicle to really create an impact also use lift kits in combination with large tires and custom wheels.
About Leveling Kits
Here are a few quick things to know about leveling kits:
- Many trucks and SUVs come from the manufacturer with the rear about 2″ to 3″ higher than the front; a leveling kit fixes this imbalance
- The right leveling kit depends on your vehicle’s suspension; our team can help you out
