Lift Kit

Hi guys,

has anyone installed a lift kit? I want to do the lift and put on some all terrains. The 3" or so gained will help a lot on the sand.

Is there even a kit yet? I have looked but not found one. I would like a little lift too. I would be happy with just 2"

Just FYI. Usually a 2" lift would be a bodylift and not a suspension lift. The common BL are usually 3" but can be custom made.

Exactly, what part of UNI-BODY do you not understand?

I hope they come out with w 1.5-2" spring kit soon. There was one for the 4.3. As you can see from my profile pic, I intend on taking my RAV a little off the beaten path-but not too far. Having a little more height would make me comfortable.

Not really sure if that was directed at me but I understand uni-bodies

What kind of spring kit was it? Was a spacer or complete suspension replacement?

You should post one some off road pics and videos if you have them.

This is all I have been able to find.

Rav4 Coil Spring Suspension Lift Kit

He doesn't make them anymore but a company called Deaver Suspension is supposed to be ramping up with his design. I am hoping for a 2013+ version.

Has Anyone here contacted Deaver recently? I've been considering calling him again, last I checked he said they would be ready by August 2013.
