97 tracker springs

i have a 1997 geo tracker, i have put a 2.5 body lift on it and i want to put a 3 inch suspension lift on it but i dont want to pay a crap load of money so im trying to to find out if anyone knows if a set of coil springs from a different vehicle will fit my tracker i need them to be about 3 inches longer, in the end i would like to put a set of 30" (approx) on it. any help would be great. thanks alot

Re: 97 tracker springs

i may be out of line here but.....lifting it that much without changing tht control arms would probly cause some major problems with the front end geometry. you might could just put a 1 inch spacer in the front and an add-a-leaf in the rear. any more than that woulb probly be a little much.

Re: 97 tracker springs

Add a leaf??

Trackicks are coily in the rear too!..

I ran 30's on my 93 with a 3" body lift and 1" coil spacers. I say get the spacers for now. Flip yer strut mounts up front and some longer rear shocks (Mustang GT shocks fit).



Spacer install..

Re: 97 tracker springs

3" lift coils can not be done with stock a arm unless you esign a bracket to move them out a few inches. But for all the trouble I would just suck it up and buy the Calmini kit.


Update you info as to where you live!!!!! On the west coast of Canada you can order your lift from North Shore Offroad and on the East Coast there is a distributor too.

The Calmini kit is the best way to go besides a solid axle swap.

Re: 97 tracker springs

I do not really recommend it, but a local guy took a set of Honda front springs (Accord, I think) and cut them to fit in the front of his tracker. Gives about 2 inches of lift, but honestly it rode a bit spongy. Also if you lift the front more than about an inch you will need to get longer struts.
Good luck!
