Mistakes to Avoid When Lifting Your Truck

27 Sep

One of the main reasons why you would need a lift kit for your vehicle is the increased ground clearance it provides. They are also ideal when you need to go off-road through rocks, mud, and even snow. This video highlights mistakes to avoid when purchasing truck lift installs, especially if it’s your first time using a kit.

1. Price

Don’t base your purchase solely on pricing. Cheaper models may not provide the various parts required to correct certain things such as the angle of the CV axles.

You may also not necessarily need the most expensive lift kit.

2. Maintenance

Ensure the other related parts are well-maintained, such as the CVA axles, bushings, ball joints, and bearings. Having worn-out parts despite having a new suspension kit won’t solve any current problems.

3. Rake

A leveling kit changes the entire look of the truck and how it handles the rake. When the rear of the vehicle is higher than the front, it is called a ‘rake’. Getting the right size kit is therefore necessary.

Purchase a good quality kit and remember to get the alignment and other things adjusted, such as breaks after installation.
