This is my 2012 t3, has alex gees lift installed, i had him make mine 2.5 inches, or 63.5mm....Right now it just has little 265/60r18 bfg k02s but in a few weeks im going to install 33x12.5 r18s and maybe a small spacer.....There is no binding or drive line issues and it rides a bit stiffer but man does it look much nicer

I want to hear more about this lift kit. It is purely a spacers body lift, correct? No change to the suspension itself?

No it is a spring spacer lift

You can have a read here, model may be different but the spring spacers are the same.

Why do you think the suspension is stiffer after the spacer install? How much stiffer are we talking, is it still comfortable or more lowered car tiny sidewall stiff?

I’m really wanting to raise my t3 but not sure I want a compromised ride.

Thanks!

Looks killer! I lifted mine a week ago. Running a 20mm spacer. 18x9.5et49 wheels and 285/60 ridge grapplers. Need to mold or cut out the fender vents because of a little rubbing

any fitment shots? my stock et is 53..so you have about 24mm of offset im guessing this is the reason for rubbing....id like to see the poke, im going to go 15-20 mm in total and try and stuff a 285 or a 33x12.5

My next tire set up is going to be 285/65. I was thinking about trying a 33x12.5 but the width is where we run into issues as far as rubbing. Maybe when I get these fenders vents figured out, I will be able to stuff some in there

Tex and Mark. How stiff is the suspension with the spacer setup. I know you each have different brands between Forge and Alex’s stuff. Just wondering how you’d rate the stiffness. Like coilovers with low profile tires stiff or less stiff?

Thanks gents!
