Hi i have a 2003 Rav4 cruiser 2.0L manual and i am looking for a 2 inch lift. However i dont want to change my struts, coils supension and shocks. I just want to add a spacer on top of my struts and a spacer in the back too.

Ive seen one for a 2006-2018 model (ready lift), however i doubt this will fit my model, can anyone help me please as i am going to a river crossing track soon and all i have is 235/60r16 tyres that i just got last week. Thanks guys!

I don't think there is 2'' spacers for our generation. The thicker spacers are 40mm (1.6''). However, it gives an appreciable difference. It's sad you already bought your tires, because 235/60/16 are so tiny! RAV4.2 should have come with 235/70/16 from factory. And going with 225/75/16 tires would add another 1-1,5'' ground clearance.

Here is 2 links to buy 40mm strut spacers:

Commando I bought these spacers and nobody wanted to install them for me because of safety reasons :cautious: .. I still havent gotten around to try to do them myself, I think I just might end up getting the OME lift and going with 225/75/16 soon. What wheel spacers did you get again?

I'm really surprised that no shop is willing to install the lift kit. May be you can try with 4x4 shop?

My wheel spacers are 1.25'' front, and 2'' rear. They are all hubcentric spacers.
