Lift for Suzuki Sidekick

A buddy of mine has a 1990 (I believe) Sidekick. He has just put on a set of bigger tires, 235/75/15's (thanks to those that helped). He is now looking at doing a small susp. lift. I was wondering what the cheapest non destructive way of doing this. I did my Samurai with a set of extended shackles and there great. I am looking for something equally as easy and effective if possible.

Thanks

Check out the "lift boosters" on this page: http://www.rocky-road.com/kickmisc.html
They're coil spring spacers, giving 3/8" or 1" of lift with no real drawbacks. And like your shackles, these spacers are cheap. $24-38 a pair.

Re: Lift for Suzuki Sidekick

If you're looking for a little lift to gain clearance for bigger tires, the spacers will add a little. If you want more than an inch and stay cheap, a body lift is possible, but takes away from safety is used on the road.

My suggestion, save for a suspensions system, like Calmini or OME. Usually I find that once you start to lift, you'll eventually come down with the "bigger is best" virus.

Think long term.
