Hi Johnson Rods,
Can you please confirm my understanding of a few points? I'm in the UK and my RRS is a November 2012 model L320. Here we go apologies in advance for the length and boredom...
Lift kits are available in 1.5", 2.5" & 3.0" kits, let's take the 3" kit as an example. Do these adjust the standard air suspension heights by this amount permanently whilst fitted? Therefore, meaning you can lower or higher the suspension, up to the off-road height and down to access height PLUS the 3" lift that's been installed? Are there any restrictions this gives? Does anything else need modifying? Does this cause extra wear or pressure on the air suspension system as it's extended permanently? Other than the obvious differences in height are there any other pro's or cons?
Also, I'm not sure what height to think about as I use my RR on the road about 500-600 miles per week on average, sometimes more and sometimes less. Is the height just a personal choice? or are there other things to consider? Do you get a large difference in the amount of roll if you go up to 3"? If I go for a 3" lift what's the best 20" tyre size to fit? Do you ship to the UK or have a distributor?
Thanks so much in advance, Garry
That all sounds excellent! Thanks for your speedy response! Have a great day!
The lift will be permanent when the kit is installed. The vehicle will raise higher with off road mode selected. Access mode sometimes does not work with larger tires. The wear is the same with a lift or stock as the system just maintains pressure as normal. The main advantage is added ground clearance and the ability to run a larger tire. The size of the lift is a personal choice and depends on what you want to achieve. For the amount of driving you are doing a smaller lift may work well. I recommend the 1.5 inch lift and a 285-50-20 tire for the L320. We ship worldwide.
