Do I need special shocks if my truck is lifted?

You don't need new shocks if you install a body lift kit on your vehicle. It raises the vehicle's body but leaves the suspension alone.

Do I need new shocks with a 4 inch lift?

It's worth mentioning that trucks equipped with lift kits and aftermarket shock absorbers will need replacement shocks periodically (every 40,000 miles is a good rule of thumb). If your truck has a lift kit, make sure that you choose a set of replacement shocks that are designed to work with a lifted truck.

Do you need longer shocks with a body lift?

The reason you dont need longer shocks is because you are doing nothing to the suspension. You are just raising the body. The need for longer shocks on a suspension lift is so the shock dont over extend (longer distance from axle mount to frame mount.

Do 2 inch leveling kits require new shocks?

Do I Need New Shocks? Not all leveling kits require new shocks. ... However, if your original shocks have 20,000 or more miles on them, you plan to take the vehicle off-road, or if you drive aggressively, you should consider new shocks mandatory with the installation of a suspension leveling kit.

Does a 2 inch lift make a difference?

Yes a 2" lift is worth it, think of it this way... On a tourer it enables you to get to more places or the same places with less risk of sill and under carriage damage, it also increases your take off and departure angles which is a plus.

Do lift kits affect mpg?

The type of tires you use is going to be the first thing that can affect the fuel economy. All-terrain tires or larger sized tires are going to lower your fuel economy a bit. The lift kit will impact your fuel economy depending on the size and weight of the kit installed. A heavier kit will lower your fuel economy.

How long do shocks last on a lifted truck?

“As a general rule of thumb, OEM hydraulic twin-tube shocks only last about 15,000 to 20,000 miles when used in a work truck environment (towing, hauling heavier loads, off-road/off-pavement use),” says Shane Casad, Bilstein of America, who specializes in pickup suspension setups.

How can I make my lifted truck ride better?

The following steps can make a huge difference:

  1. Reduce the unsprung mass.
  2. Soften the suspension system.
  3. Change the wheels and tires.

  6. Get new leaf springs.

Are spacer lifts bad?

Spacer lifts aren't bad if you install them correctly, and as long as the spacers don't lift the truck too high. Issues arise if the spacers are too high, causing issues with suspension. Mild spacer liftsare great for off-road and can even improve the off-road ability.

Do lift kits wear out?

Lifting the truck is not going to wear parts much faster. it would be very minimal just adding more wind resistance by lifting the vehicle. Additional weight and size from tires and or rims will put more resistance on the vehicle. Depending on the setup may cause extra wear and tear.
