I have a 1997 Geo Tracker With A 1.6 16valve My buddy has a 1988 Sammy lifted a little over 6" with 31's I would like to get mine around the same height and not spend a mint in the process. He has leaf springs witch makes it easy and cheap were on the other hand i have coils. Is there any one that could give me some advice.?
The 2 major lifts companies out there for the trackers and sidekicks are RRO and Calmini if you want to buy a lift for itbut i have heard Calmini 's rides stiff, never rode in one though.
what about a 3inch calmini body lift....i saw someone on cardomain that had a 3inch body lift and 30 inch mt's....im thinking that route + spacers for 31's....also it says on rro's website that you can get extended shifters or what ever..... i need to know more about this myself im at that point where i can afford calmini but idk if really want 6 inches of lift on the tracker......sorry if i hijacked somewhat
I don't get it all these people that want "x" inches of lift. What's that all about? The question should be "I want to run this size tire so what's the smallest lift that will clear it? Oh I get it now, it's how tall can I make my rig for the mall
Just to add another vendor to the mix, BDS makes a 2 inch lift too http://www.bds-suspension.com/suspensionsystems_2suzuki.html and a bodylift as well, but the bodylift says it's only for 89-95, so dunno if it'll go on a 96+ ??
from seeing different rides i could fit 31's with 4 inches of lift or so maybe a 2 inch calmini or rro 2.5 and a 3inch body or 2 inch body
Yes i did have to use camber bolts with my calmini lift. it worked out great, and the ride is amazing, atleast in my opinion. ok here is the info ahead of time before you buy the calmini lift. it is design as a heavy duty off-road suspension kit meant to carry serious weight. winch and winch bumper, roll cage, and belly armour. with all that extra stuff installed the suspension sits at 3" without any of the extra weight it sits at around 4.5" high but without the extra weight your front tires will look like this \ / but not as severe, so i used camber bolts to correct it, and they do. the calmini kit is worth every penny it is a rock solid kit, and i'm super happy with it. 10x stonger than the parts it replaces.if you don't plan on doing rock crawling, i'd get the calmini kit. an sas conversion would be better in the long run if you plan to rock crawl. rocky roads kit forces you existing suspension downwards limiting you down travel, calmini's kit compensates for this with their full suspension kit, and besides without the extra weight your at the same principal as rocky roads but you get 4.5" without having to use a 2" body lift now add a 2" body lift and your sitting 6.5" higher and you can fit bigger tires with some fender trimming.
I was running 31x9.50-15 Swamper TSL radials on 15x8" rims with 3.75" of backspacing on a 90 Tracker with a home-made 2" body lift and 1-1/2" coil spacers(also made myself).
DIGGER, I WAS TOLD BY ONE OF MY FREINDS WHO KNOWS YOU. THAT WHEN YOU DO A SPACER ON THE TRACKERS THAT IT TILTS THE WHEELS OUTWARDS AT THE TOP IS THIS TRUE? BY THE WAY IT IS NOT FOR THE MALL I WHEEL IT PRETTY INTENSELY ALREADY WITH IT BEING STOCK IT FLEXES NICLY STOCK.
