Default SX4 lift kit

Just in case any of u guys happen to know where got sell aftermarket suspension (Spring, Shock N Coilover) that can handle rough terrain with adjustable stiffness and is 1 to 2 inch longer than the stock, do let me know. I'm very keen to buy it. Thanks.

No matter where around the world, as long as reputable brand, I'll get my hands on it.....

Well, rocky-road outfitters has a 1.5 - 2" lift for the sx-4.It consist of strut and spring spacers.It make it look almost like an suv instead of a sport compact.

Default lift kit

I like the look of the lift and added sliders from Rocky-Road, does anyone have other sites for equipment for the SX-4 crossover

join SX4 Forums and do a search for the lift kit on there. there are atleast 2 members that have lifted their cars and given them proper on/off road tires, and have nothing but praise about it now. it is a very capable light trail car once its set up like that.

I am also a member over on sx4club.com where their are about 4-5 of us that have this lift-kit and A/T tires. Some have the General Grabber A/T2, Yokohama Geolander A/TS and the FALKEN ZIEX S/TZ-04 tires....


I have the RRO lift-kit installed on my car along with 215/70 R16 Falken High Country A/T tires. I must say I like the way my car looks now and the way it drives..

That does look nice,if your looking for a good set of on off road tires ,I have been running Geolander A/t on my little GV for a while in size 235/60/16.If that will fit on the SX-4 ,they are great pulling offroad tires. I have had my GV in some harry situations off road and pulled out fine.I almost traded my little GV in on one but they wouldn't give me a good enough deal.This one in the pic looks great.

Default thinking of lift kit.

I am thinking of the R.R. lift kit but I don't want new tires. Would it look ok with the all season tires it came with?

Cool

Between the payments and the insurance, I don't have a lot left for add-ons, but I did get the windows tinted and a red stripe most of the way around the body. It really looks great on the light blue paint.

I've recently added the rear Skid Plate, from Primitive Racing and a U-Haul Trailer Hitch.

I live out in the sand dunes in Central Florida, and so far I've not seen any obstacles I could not overcome, with my SX4.
When I put it in 4WD Lock and turn off the ISP, it pulls harder and with better traction than my 2000 Grand Vitara.

Traction can be doubled, by just dropping the air pressure in all four tires to 25#. I used to do that in the winter, up north, to get through deep snow, with standard street tires.

I'd like some of those deep tread grabbers, but at the speeds I have to drive on the interstate, (80 + ) those tires would howl like a banshee.

I do love to hear what other drivers are doing with their little SX4's.
I'm just wondering what kind of gas mileage y'all are getting?
My best so far, is 27.6 on a 100 mile road trip.
Not too bad for a 4WD vehicle.

Cheers Mates!
