sidekick lift

A friend of mine has purchased an 87 Sidekick. He has a set of 32x11.50's that he wants to put on, and then eventually go to 33's. How much lift does he need to clear the tires, and which one is recommended. I think he wants to stay with a SUA suspension, but any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: sidekick lift

If it's an 87, it's actually a Samurai, right?

Re: sidekick lift

If you are talking about a Samurai...with 33" tires you would really need to do a SpOA with something like a 1-1/2" lift spring to clear them properly.....(although you can probably do it with a 5" SpUA and a 3" body lift)

Re: sidekick lift

A 5" SpUA, such as the Calmini Combo, with a 2" or more body lift will work. A SpOA with a 2" body, or 1.5" springs will work too.

One thing to remember, SpUA will have a greater chance of rubbing the springs when turning, unless to seriously backspace the rims. SpOA, because of the different position of the springs, is much less likely to rub.

Junk food for thought.
