Tracker LSI considered \"Sport\" model?


I am trying to order some parts for my wife's Tracker, but the company I am dealing with can't tell me if the LSI model is considered the "Sport" model which can require different parts. Any help is appreciated.

Re: Tracker LSI considered \"Sport\" model?

LSI is the top end model. the trackers dont have a sport package. only the sidekicks have that. depends on what your ordering it shouldnt make a difference. what parts you gettin?

That makes sense.
I am trying to get a 2" receiver hitch that also fits Sidekicks.

You rock, thanks!

Re: Tracker LSI considered \"Sport\" model?

the only difference the sport means is it has a body package (different bumpers and moldings) the sport bumpers are wider then a regular model and the interiors are a bit fancier. they are also different on the kicks from 2 door to 4 door. as far as i know all the trackers were reletivly the same up until 98

Sport Sidekicks have a slightly wider frame and require a different hitch. Not sure about trackers, though - I don't think there was a "Sport" model. I would measure between the fram rails and compare to the specs of the hitch before you order.

Re: Tracker LSI considered \"Sport\" model?

The Sport (which was originally the Sidekick JLX) has wider frame rails, and the 1.8L DOHC engine. This was never available in the Tracker. This was available in the 1996 through 1998 model years if I recall correctly (I'm SURE about 1996, NQS about 1998, but 1999 is when the Grand Vitara came out, so I'm PRETTY SURE 1998 was the last year for the Sidekick Sport).

4 Wheel Drive Hardware sells the 2" Receiver Hitch (part number 546 Fall/Winter 2002 Catalog Page 12) for $109.95 which will fit on the 2-door Track/Kick 1989-1998.

Bobzuki is correct, if you do not have a 96 - 98 Tracker, then you have no concern. If it is in this model year group, then a measurement might be warranted, but I don't think GEO ever got the Sidekick Sport to rebadge. Suzuki was holding a few things back from GM like the V6 when the Vitara first came out.

Re: Tracker LSI considered \"Sport\" model?

The other thing, is that the Sidekick Sport was ONLY a 4-door model - isn't the Tracker LSi a 2-door? If you have a 2-door, they're all the same, and to install the hitch, you just remove the tubular frame brace below the rear bumper, and bolt the hitch in the same place.

EDIT: Oops! I was wrong! There's a 1997 4-door Tracker LSi on e-bay right now! But it's definitely NOT a SPORT! It has the 1.6/16 engine.
