2013 Ford Escape, 245/60-18 General tires with 40mm lift kit
The EBay one from Russia
How much clearance do you have now?So finally it is on. This is with general grabber m&s tires 235/60-18, a better fit would be 225/60 to keep most of the height with less shoulder when turning. However I am a maximum type of guy so I did some trimming mods to keep things free! View attachment 78455 View attachment 78456 View attachment 78457
Well. Mine is at 29.25 on OEM equivalent Bilstein shocks and OEM springs with no spacer lift and stock tire size. So it seems like you got about three inches between lift and tire size. Not badnot sure on actual clearance but front fender lip is now at 32 inches.
How many mm is the lift that you got?You are better off doing the spacer lift and not doing the springs. A. I have heard complaints with the springs making hard ride on bumps B. I just installed the ebay lift that was close to 2 inches and was told the suspension really can't drop any further to go higher. C. The only way to go higher is an engine cradle drop first and then you could raise the suspension even more. D. Stay tuned ;-)
I moved your post to the lift kit thread. You had posted in the all terrain tire thread.I want to lift my 2016 1.6L a few inches, the only way that seems possible is a lift kit (30mm) on eBay and h&r springs (1.4" front and 0.8" back). The lift is about 2.5 inches total, I just got new falken wildpeak a/t stock size, Is putting both together ok? Will it add a lot of strain to other parts or would I have to also change other parts like struts and control arm or will it be ok with stock parts? Also would it be better if I just did one to keep stock parts?
