Discovering The Truth About Repairs

A Must Read Before Buying or Installing Lift Kits on Your Vehicle

A lift kit is a vehicle modification that is used to lift or suspend the body of a car. Installing a lift kit on your car raises its wheel wells, making it possible for you to utilize bigger wheels. This, in turn, makes it possible for your vehicle to explore difficult terrains. Car lifting is typically done on 4WDs like trucks, SUVs, Jeeps, and the like and are available in two main types; suspension and body lifts.

Body lifts are made up of blocks and spacers. They increase the wheel wells to make room for bigger tires, but require a further investment to raise the bumper and other modifications in a car to support the lift. This lift does not improve travel.

Suspension lifts enhance the clearance between the axles and ground, improving travel significantly. This happens when the front and rear leaf springs, and shocks are lifted to suspend your car. The suspension lifts also enhance the articulation of a car.

Before installing a lift kit on your car, there are particular primary concerns that you must put in mind to make the modification helpful. They include:

The terms of your car’s warranty
Your vehicle’s warranty may prohibit modifications on your car, and thus you should confirm that to be clear on the terms of your warranty. In many cases, warranties are null and void when lift kits are installed, hence you should work out a plan on how you will take care of your car after you make your start modifying your vehicle.

Legal considerations
The law does not allow suspensions to a certain level to keep the roads safe. This is because suspending your vehicle can reduce your visibility on the road, especially for small objects, increasing your chances of bumping into things on the road. To find out more about the rules and regulations concerning car suspension, go to 4WD shops or online to carry out a research or call concerned parties who may advise you appropriately.

The type of your car
While enquiring about the rules and regulations, it will be great if you also find out which lift kits are perfect for your car’s model. Have this information with you; your car model, its make, the year it was manufactured, its engine type and size, and details about any chassis modifications made on your vehicle.

Variety of lift kits
Besides the main types of lift kits, they are availed in more forms. The simple ones install coil springs or strut spacers, extend the shocks or lift the blocks. The complex types can replace your vehicle’s trailing arms, control arms, and customize four-link systems. These features make the difference in any modification and knowing your car’s type, your preferred style, and height required will help you choose the right kit for you.
