Types of Lift Kits

A common 2.5″ Jeep Lift Kit. This kit allows clearance of the larger, more aggressive tires.

There are various types of kits available for lifting your truck or SUV. The most simple and affordable way to do so is with a body lift kit (also called a spacer kit). 

The other way is through a suspension lift kit. Both accomplish the same goal of lifting the vehicle, but they differ in their performance and deciding which one is best for you is a critical part of beginning to transform your vehicle into the truck or SUV of your dreams. Jeeps are some of the most common lifted vehicles we work with.

What are Suspension Lift Kits?

Struts can often be adjust to a range of modifiable heights.

A suspension lift kit involves lifting the vehicle by changing vital suspension components which may include the shocks, struts, leaf springs, and many other systems.

This is the preferred lifting method for those who want the best possible ride or for those who intend on doing any serious offroading. Suspension lift kits are also the only method to lift a vehicle above 5″, so if you want that 12″ SEMA show-truck look, you’ll have to go with a suspension lift kit.

In some cases a lifted vehicle will drive better than it did before the lift! Premium brands like Icon Vehicle Dynamics offer a wide range of lifts suited to fit the performance you’re looking for!

Body Lift Kits

A body lift kit (or spacer kit) works by introducing new components to supplement the old suspension systems, such as a spacer block to put in the front struts of a vehicle. They are the most common types of lifts and for good reason – they’re affordable, get the job done, and are easy to take apart in case you want to return your vehicle to stock.

The benefit to these is that they are much more affordable and still do the same job of lifting the vehicle. The downside is that these are limited to around 5″ for most vehicles as most suspension systems aren’t designed to ride with heights that large.


How long does it take to install a lift kit on a truck?

Experienced installer can take anywhere between seven and fifteen hours to finish installing a new lift kit. Even though installing a lift kit can be a straightforward process, it is likely to take a DIYer twice as long doing it at home. This is why we recommend hiring a trained professional for this task.
