Lift Height: What's right for you?
(1"-3") Mild Lifts: 1-3 inch lifts are for the daily driven vehicle that will spend most of it's time on the road. Great for getting over curbs and other small obstacles that most vehicles can't.
(4"-6") Medium Lifts: These are the most commonly purchased lifts. 4-6 inches of extra clearance will allow your vehicle to handle more off road time and still be streetable.
(7"-up) Extreme Lifts: Extreme lifts are exactly that. Go anywhere you want and get the extra looks from the guys with mild lifts.

Skyjacker Toyota suspension lift kit is essential when trying to attain a front lift. Consequently, factory torsion bars also need to be adjusted because of the fact that boost in height directly results to loss of sag or what they call suspension extension travel which allows your tires to follow the contour of rough trails. Moreover, the ride quality stiffens and your vehicle won’t be at its peak performance level. Although you need more than just Toyota Skyjacker suspension lifts to simultaneously maintain or increase the suspension extension travel, it does put the ball joint angle in the right way.
However, the tubular upper control arms of new Skyjacker Toyota lift kits somehow restores lost suspension extension travel and for a smoother drive, you would need shocks on all corners to support the Toyota Skyjacker suspension lifts. The existing height of your vehicle is the basis of how high it can be lifted off the ground – that’s why it’s best to seek professional advice before getting Toyota Skyjacker suspension lifts.
