Expedition Vehicle Outfitter’s goal with any client is always to help educate first before your upgrade purchase to help you make a confident and well thought out decision. This blog will help lay out some options and general ideas of suspension modification. So let’s dive into some options!
FORD BRONCO SPACER LIFT KIT
A spacer Ford Bronco lift kit is a suspension modification in which a spacer made of plastic, aluminum or steel is installed above the coilover shock to raise the Ford Broncos ride height. This is a great option to add 1”, 2” or 2.5” of additional suspension lift. This height adjustment is based on your Ford Bronco’s trim package and thickness of spacer installed. This will result in near factory ride quality, increased ground clearance, and increased tire size fitment. This is one of the most low cost lift options but can have limited off road performance upgrades. This style lift will keep factory suspension travel, no added suspension travel. Upgraded front upper control arms may be necessary depending on added lift height added to correct alignment issues and proper ball joint angles. One major thing to remember is that Sasquatch Package equipped Ford Broncos are critically effected by adding a spacer lift kit in most cases causing improper ball joint, CV axle shaft and tie rod end angles causing premature failures. Consult Expedition Vehicle Outfitters in Michigan for safe options to lift your Ford Bronco Sasquatch Package. Lift Kit Price $50-100.
PRO- Increased Size Tire Fitment, Increased Ground Clearance
