There’s a common belief that ‘off-road’ suspension is simply a taller version of factory supplied OE suspension. Depending on the brand you choose, it may well be just that! However, a properly engineered suspension lift is so much more.
Lifting a vehicle by raising its suspension height changes the vehicle’s center of gravity which can have a substantial effect on how the vehicle handles, corners or brakes. Depending on the suspension design, it can also have an adverse effect on driveline angles which can lead to vibration issues and component failure. Engineered correctly, the right suspension system will address these issues, while also providing an improved ride and weight carrying ability over a variety of road types both on and off-road.
