Thank you for choosing Suspensionmaxx for your
vehicle. This kit is designed to add suspension travel
and increase front and ground clearance. Specially
designed tools and experience are required to complete
the installation properly. These parts should only be
installed by a qualified mechanic otherwise an unsafe
vehicle and/or injury may result. Consult manufactures
service manual for proper torque specifications and
procedures. Instructions are supplied for the leveling
kit installation only. Safety is important. Use safe
working habits.
This product combines with the coil-over strut suspension to increase height up to 1¾” for a smoother ride.
Enhances ride profile and is an economical alternative
to expensive lift kits. This kit allows for 265/65/17 or
equivalent on factory wheel or positive offset wheel.
SuspensionMAXX kits are designed to be easily installed
and completely reversible to the factory supplied settings.
These instructions are supplied for ease of installation,
correct procedures and safety. Automotive experience
• Eye protection & gloves
• Load rated floor jack, two safety stands and wheel
• Metric tool set, toque wrench and Loctite thread
lockker for all suspension fasteners
• Medium size pry bar, brass hammer and/or brass
This suspension system will enhance off road performance and increase
ground clearance. Larger tires will increase vehicle roll center height.
The vehicle will handle and respond to driver steering and braking
differently from a stock factory equiped passenger car or truck. Extreme
care must be used to prevent loss of control or vehicle rollover during
abrupt maneuvers both on and off-road. Failure to operate this
vehicle safely can result in vehicle damage, serious injury or
death to the driver and passengers. Always wear your seat
belt and reduce your speed, avoid sharp turns, inclines and
abrupt maneuvers. Tread lightly, respect nature and enjoy
the Off-Road Experience! Help keep it available for future
Thank You!
