Rear Suspension

If low ride height has one drawback it’s uptravel. Smacking bumpstops off-road gets old fast. If you’re lifting the suspension instead of cutting sheetmetal, the stock control arms will work up to 2-3 inches of lift. We’ve run short arms at 4 inches of lift and it makes climbing and descending off-road a puckering experience. You can run 37s with 3 inches of lift, but you will need to trim fenders and might need adjustable control arms. The 37s will hit the rear of the front fenders, which requires moving the front axle forward. Shown are Currie Enterprises adjustable control arms.
