There are three main types of lift kits. These types are: suspension, leveling , and body lift kits. As the names imply, they are put together for different reasons. The suspension lift kits are designed to increase ground clearance under the suspension. The body lift kit is designed to lift the body and give it separation from the frame. The leveling lift kit is designed to level the vehicle, usually when towing is being done. When buying a lift kit, you should ask the salesperson whether or not you will need anything more than what comes with the kit in order to make it work properly.
