The Tesla Model 3 is possibly the most popular EV ever made. It has attracted a diverse group of owners, with needs many of us never considered. We heard a number of reasons why some needed the car to be higher up from the ground: accessibility issues, commuting on unpaved roads, incredibly steep driveways (SF owners know) and even ex-Subaru owners asked for a raised up Model 3 because they like that style!
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. The range will be mildly reduced as more air can travel underneath the car and the front of the tires have more exposure.
No spring compressor is required during the install, and it is fairly straight forward. You will require an alignment after installing this lift kit.
Installation Time: 2 hours
