Red face Lift Kit??

I have a non adjustable suspension on a '08 Touareg and looking for a 2-3 in lift kit. Does anyone have any good advice? I know that there were some threads about this in the past..... Please help!

Thanks
Rob

I was wondering about this on the T3. All I see is people lowering them.

I've done a lot of work and spent a lot of money on this subject, suggest you read my journey here

https://www.clubtouareg.com/forums/f6...di-166345.html

Bottom line is that now I have stopped experimenting and have settled on the the Seikel suspension kit,
Seikel Suspension Kit - Volkswagen Touareg
with 245/70-17LT tyres which results in a 900-905mm ride height (measured from ground to bottom of wheel arch) being a 40mm increase to stock height which is pretty much the same as the height achieved by running on "offroad" height using air suspension but with the advantage of having full spring articulation.

In general the Touareg rides flatter and firmer however when I go back to the summer 255/55/18 tyres I feel that the ride is a little harsher due to the lower profile tyre and find I prefer to run with the higher profile tyre day to day.

I make a 50mm lift for T1 & T2s. I have yet to get my hands on the T3 to measure one up. 50mm's is about the max you want to go on our suspensions due to the design. Anything more and you'll be severely limiting your travel unless you get longer shocks and you also have to be concerned with the CV angles on the drive axles. There is a whole thread regarding lift kits for the T1/T2's located here


Here are a few shots with my spacers installed.

It's either gotta be really really clean....or really really dirty.

I just installed MmmBoost lift kit on my 07 V6 and upgraded the tires to 255/70r17. The lift kit fits like a glove. Thanks Chris!!!

Exactly what I'm looking for. MmmBoost, do you make kits for the open market?
