heyy guys. im just after some advice....

ive got a 1995 vitara 1.6 16v jlx swb and im wanting to give her a bit of a lift. ive read a fair bit on suspension lifts, chassis lifts and other nessesary bits that might need doing like various extensions etc. ive looked at 3" extended springs, gv springs, spring spacers, box section chassis lifts, lift kits that include springs, shocks, spacers and bushes and other bits. i know that if i lift it so much i will need certain extensions and that. i think ive read on here that most people dont like box section lifts...am i right? ifo whats that?

as much as id love to be driving a vitara monster truck about, it wouldnt be practical and i dont have all the money in the world. all im after is a sensable lift so i can get some bigger tyres on as im hoping to be doing a bit of off roadin and green laning. i dont want to be spending a fortune either.

whats you opinion?

I'm running a 3 1/2" Calmini Suspension lift and a 1" body lift. It allows me to run 9.50X15/30" BFG mud Terrains, with that much lift you can go to 31" tires, but more than 31"s the stock transfer case dosen't have enough reduction gearing, at least for crawling.

Also forgot to add I'm running 1 1/4" spacers, with 8X15 aluminum rims.
