Newbie questions

What are the differences between a suspension lift and a body lift? Which is easier to install? Do they still give the same amount of lift? Which tends to be more expensive? Do they stack?


Thanks. I've always been an engine person.

A body lift lifts the body off of the frame, a suspension lift, lifts the frame and body off of the axles, ifs, ttb, what ever you have.

I'd say a body lift is easiest to install, especially if you have never done any suspension work.

Suspension lifts are more expensive than body lifts.

I don't what you mean, are you asking if you can put both a body lift and a suspension lift on? If that's what you're asking, yes, you can put both on.

Thanks you answered all the questions. And yes, by stack I did mean both at the same time.
