Tips to Install a Leveling Kit

Installing a lift kit helps the vehicle to drive smoothly in rough terrains, provide it better ground clearance, and enhance stability & control. Though the steps of installing a lift kit vary from vehicle to vehicle, but there are few common rules that everyone can follow. 

Here you go:

  • Raise the vehicle on a hoist safely elevated up off the ground and make sure its secured.
  • Remove the front wheels by using a lug wrench. Keep the nuts at a safe place so that you can use them whenever needed. 
  • Unhook the sway bar link from each side of the vehicle. 
  • Separate the upper nuts to disconnect the shock absorber array from upper shock tower. The upper nuts are usually three to four in counting. 
  • Remove the strut assembly.
  • Note the alignment of the top plate. It is important to mark it, else you will need to reassemble the strut tower. 
  • Compress the springs using a spring compressor.
  • Now, take off the rubber isolator, top nut and top plate from each shock.
  • Re-assemble the new sturt tower using OEM plate with new shocks and springs.
  • Re-assemble the rubber isolator and top plate and tighten the top nut. 
  • Connect the new assembly to the vehicle by keeping in mind the alignment you have marked on the configuration of the strut top plate. 
  • Separate the skid plates from the car. Make sure to take care of the bolts. 
  • Place the small spacers between the cross section and differential supports. 
  • Make sure to torque the bolts as per OEM specs.
  • Reinstall the skid plates. 
  • Check to confirm if you have left any screws and bolts there. 
  • Get a wheel alignment done.
