Types of Lift Kits

Depending on your end goal, there are multiple lift types to choose for your truck in Oxford, MS. Some examples include:

  • Body lift: This lift places a spacer between the frame and body mounts and is used to install larger tires, increase space for bigger engines and transmission, and add power takeoff tools.
  • Spacer lift: This option lifts the vehicle 1 to 2 inches and involves placing a spacer between the suspension and the mounting location of the suspension.
  • Torsion bars: One of the easiest ways to lift your truck is with torsion bars. These typically allow you to adjust your suspension height in small increments.
  • Coil springs: If you prefer not to use a spacer, you can turn to coil springs, which can be custom made for the height and spring rate you desire.
  • Leaf springs: Likewise, you can entirely replace leaf springs to lift your vehicle, add a single leaf, or replace the shackle where spring mounts with the larger one.
  • Air suspension: Considered the simplest way to lift your car or truck in small amounts, air suspensions allow you to adjust ride height sensors directly.

When purchasing a lift kit, you need to make sure it was designed to fit your exact make and model. If you need help finding the proper kit, contact your Collierville parts department.

Leveling Kits

Keeping your lifted truck completely level is key for its performance and your safety. While lift kits add height, leveling kits are often needed to keep your truck perfectly parallel to the ground. Leveling kit options include:

  • Standard Leveling Kits
  • Front and Rear Spring Spacer Leveling Kits
  • Coil Spacer Leveling Kits
  • Coil Spacer Leveling Kits with shocks
  • Front Strut Leveling Kits
