Re: another vendor trackers an sidekick lifts

I saw just the spring spacers on eBay once. I emailed the guy and asked him about them... said a local company made them, gave me the name, but it was before the website was up.

Biggest problem I see with the 2" lift would be the need for new rear shocks.

Re: another vendor trackers an sidekick lifts

dparker,

are you trying to fit 30" tires under a pre-99 tracker? I jsut did that without any lift at all. I just hammered a little of the inner wheelwells and cut the front bumper cover. I have to really really try to get the tires to contact the body.

I had all kinds of plans to get spacers or GV coils and found out I didnt need anything.

Re: another vendor trackers an sidekick lifts

How would the spacers affect the coil's compression? Would you still get good offroad performance articulation?

Re: another vendor trackers an sidekick lifts

Im probably not qualified to answer that, Clay, but I'll take a crack at it anyways. Hopefully someone who knows what the fuq they're talking about will jump in and either affirm or correct my thoughts.

The spacers lift the truck because the same springs "Start" lower than they did before the spacers. If they compressed the coils more, then there wouldnt be any lift, right [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

So using that theory, it seems to make sense that you should have the same amount of travel, but it would just happen an inch farther from the truck. That said, the CV joints and suspension geometry limit the amount of downtravel by their design, so perhaps you would lose an inch of droop if, in fact, the stock, non-spacered suspension allowed enough droop to 'bottom out' the flex.

It seems to me (again, I am just speculating) that you wouldnt gain any flex up or down (but might lose an inch down), you would gain an inch of ground clearance under the suspended parts of the truck, though. Plus whatever you got from half the height difference of larger tires.

I think [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
