Suspension Leveling Kits
Leveling your vehicle is meant to balance the height of the front suspension to match that of the rear and provides only one to two inches of difference in ride height.
Typically, from the factory, a truck or SUV is built with extra height in the rear to help the suspension compensate when towing or carrying heavier loads in your vehicles bed or cargo area. However, this factory ride height may not be suitable for some owners who do not use their vehicles for like purposes. One of the most common reasons for leveling a vehicles suspension is to accommodate a larger profile tires or set of custom wheels.
When you are not satisfied with your factory ride height or are into a more extreme visual aesthetic, lifting your truck may be your choice. The average truck lift can provide from two to 10 inches of additional height to your vehicles suspension.
This is normally done by making several modifications to your vehicles overall suspension to provide both height and stability. Lift kits, as a general rule, are an application that is suited for those who use their vehicle in more extreme sports such as mudding, driving sand dunes or deep snow. However, most prefer them for their more common advantages such as higher ground clearance and more wheel and tire options.
As the name suggests, a lowering kit is designed to lower your vehicle’s ground clearance. While larger trucks typically get lifted, some smaller trucks, SUV’s and even cars get lowered. Though it is not as common, lowering a vehicle is an adjustment that some prefer.
More for its aesthetic than other suspension modifications, lowering your vehicle can be performed in a very subtle manner or to an extreme manner referred to as ‘dropping to frame’. Beginning at two inches, vehicles can be lowered until their body or frame touches the ground. How do you drive it when it’s that low? Additional suspension modification and systems can be added to a lowered vehicle to allow for it to be raised and re-lowered such as airbag or hydraulic controlled suspensions.
