1.75″ Suspension Lift Kit for Your Tesla:
The Tesla Model Y and Model 3 are the most popular EV’s ever made. As a result, they have attracted a diverse group of owners, with needs many of us never considered. Consequently, we heard a number of reasons why some needed the car to be higher up from the ground. Anywhere from accessibility issues, to commuting on unpaved roads, to off-roading, to incredibly steep driveways (SF owners know), and even ex-Subaru owners asked for a raised up Model Y or Model 3 because they enjoy that style! Accordingly, we introduced our 1.75″ Suspension Lift Kit for Tesla Model Y and Model 3 to address these concerns! If you want a lifted Tesla Model Y or 3 – look no further!
A Single Lift Kit Compatible With Both Model Y & Model 3:
We’re happy to report that our 1.75″ Suspension Lift Kit works with the Model Y as it does with the Model 3. Because the Model Y shares the same suspension components as the Model 3, the lift kit works in the same way. Similarly, raising the suspension with solid blocks as our lift kit does will have the same net effect in terms of ride height regardless of whether it is a Model 3 or a Model Y.
Design & Testing of the Tesla Model Y & Model 3 Lift Kit:
In the process of designing this lift kit, we set out and tested different heights and determined the 1.75″ lift to be the maximum height without going too-far and excessively impacting suspension and driveline angles. Since the center of gravity is so low due to the battery placement, handling and safety are still as you’d expect from a sporty sedan. That being said, when lifting the car this much it is recommended to add our rear camber arms to restore the negative camber back to the suggested range. A minimum of -0.7 degrees is advisable for safety. Particularly, insufficient rear camber can result in oversteer during evasive or emergency steering inputs. Additionally, the range will be mildly reduced as more air can travel underneath the car and the front of the tires have more exposure.
Installation of the Lift Kit:
To begin with, no spring compressor is required during the install of the lift kit, and it is fairly straight forward. With that in mind, you will require an alignment after installing this lift kit.
