Types of Suspension Lift Kits Available:
Lifted Spring Suspension:
The most commonly used type of truck lift kits in the world and one we like for beginners are the Lifted Spring systems. This type of truck lift kit will allow you to run larger tires for additional clearance, while still having excellent control on the highway.
Coil Suspension Lift Kits:
For serious four-wheelers, a Coil Suspension Lift Kits might be the way to go. These lift kits offer unmatched ride quality and can also utilize cheaper springs. One drawback is these lift kits sometimes requires welding. Besides that, a coil suspension lift kit provides excellent articulation on the trail and a comfortable ride when not getting muddy.
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 4x4.
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: Differences
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. The 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.
