Here are some of the best ways to choose the right lift kit for your truck.

If you are looking to customize your truck with an after-market lift kit, the good news is that you have tons of options at your disposal. The bad news is that you have to choose! Here are some of the best ways to choose the right lift kit for your truck.

How Can You Choose the Right Lift Kit?

The right lift kit can be chosen using the following four factors:

  • Vehicle type
  • Vehicle purpose
  • Tire size
  • Your budget

You might also want to consider the following: Do you want to use your truck on a trail? Do you commute every day and want to make sure you have the smoothest ride possible? Do you just want bigger tires? The reason why you want the lift kit dictates what the right lift kit for you will be.

Body Lift Kits

Body lift kits are typically made of a set of spacers that separates the suspension of your truck and the frame. The body of your truck will be lifted a little bit higher, but the chassis and suspension will be at the same height. Body kits don’t actually provide much lift, but they do make it appear like your truck has gotten a major boost.

Suspension Lift Kits

Suspension lift kits either space out the factory suspension on your truck or replace the suspension with new components. The new suspension elements can include coil springs, coil spring spaces, torsion bars, torsion keys, lift blocks, shackles, and add-a-leads. Every kit uses a slightly different method to give your truck the lift you want.

Leveling Lift Kits

Leveling kits are a way to even out the stance of your truck. Based on how your suspension is, your lift kit might include torsion keys, blocks, or extra leaf springs. If you lift the front of the truck, you get extra tire clearance and end up with a lifted look.
