If you decide to have a lift kit installed on your car or truck, make sure you consider how it will affect other vehicle components, like brakes.
After staring longingly at off-road trucks, you’ve decided the time is right to buy a truck – probably a Jeep – and get it tricked out. After that, your next step will be to have a lift kit installed. But, you’re new to off-roading and you’re not sure where to begin.
“The first step is to ask yourself what you will be doing the most, whether it’s slow-speed rock crawling, high-speed desert racing, general purpose 4 wheeling, mud racing, or long distance open country treks. From there, you can narrow down what you need to do in order to customize your vehicle to suit your needs,” according to ezinearticles.com.
Ezonarticles.com adds, “As if determining which suspension lift kits to purchase weren’t complicated enough, installing truck lift kits can alter other components in your vehicle, sometimes causing unforeseen issues that could affect performance or be potentially detrimental to the vehicle itself. For example, drive shaft length, steering geometry, brake lines, highway performance and handling, gear ratios, and overall weight are just a few of the factors that could potentially be impacted by adding truck suspension lift kits.”
Take your brakes, for example. Many times, the brakes that come on your car or truck aren’t up to the strain or just can’t accommodate the larger tires. That means you should consider upgrading your braking system if your lift kit pushes your vehicle beyond the capacity of your stock brakes. Shocks are another consideration. You might need longer shocks to accommodate the increased height of your truck. The same goes for other car parts.
Does that mean you have to shop at one place for a lift kit and, after it’s installed, go elsewhere to get new parts that will perform best with your personalized vehicle?
No, not at all.
You need to go to a one-stop shop like Trick Trucks Millsboro. Trick Trucks is in the same facility as In and Out Tires (the two businesses are locally owned by Bill and Rita Schrider).
