welcome aboard, take a look through the forums and youll fin a few threads on this....

i think llama 4x4 sell the 2"suspension lift kits but you can fabricate them with the right materials and a little know-how

Haha yeah i do have a vitara!  Just really wanting to get on with it.
Am probably going to stick 32's " on but because the guy before me had wideboy wheel arches the rust has corroded them pretty badly although they need to get cut for clearance did you bother to put an arch extension kit on?  to keep the police happy:P

you will struggle to get 32s on. mine had31s and 3" body and 2" spring lift and i still had to cut the rear of the front arch for steering clearence.
if you want to go for larger than 31s you will have to do an sj front axle and that will give about 6" of suspension lift.
if i had another vit i wouldnt do a body lift just an sj axle Very Happy

:O hmmm back to the drawing board maybe.  when you had yours lifted apart from the gearstick did the fuel lines, break hoses etc have to be extended?
