    I would be interested in something more like 2”. Really just looking to increase ground clearance a bit, along with a slightly larger tire (27” - no interested in anything bigger).

    Really? Is that net lift with some sag in the factory springs over time? Or just 2” right when installed?

    Thanks!!!

    You can gain a fair bit of lift of the chassis merely by adjusting your springs. It costs nothing although a spring wrench is highly recommended. All you do is jack the front then back as you tighten them up. Thats what I have done. My ride is fine and driven at least 1000km or more like that. The kit info isn't fact. 2" lift only gives a 1.x inch actual lift. Knowhere near 2 inches.

    Neither will raise the A-arm clearance. Depending on you tire size an upgrade will make at least as much an increase if not more to the entire vehicle if no better when you think about it. Eg I had 27 bighorn 2.0 and went to Bearclaw HTR's 27 and gained at least another inch, maybe more. So the entire machine is higher.

    Yeah, prob worth giving it a shot!

    I mainly want to go with better 27” tires, but can’t afford to go more than about 1/2” wider overall and still fit on my trailer (5ft wide exactly, and currently have about 1/2” clearance on each side). Hence why I was looking at a small lift - some clearance and gives me room to go with the wider tires (27x9 & 27x11 is the plan). Win-win!
