Stretching a rize 12 on coils

How far can i crank my coilovers, I have heard my lift kit can be taken to 16" but im not sure how true that is. If that was the case, would i be able to run 44's without cut outs? If anyone has any input it would certainly be apreceated!

I wouldn't recommend stretching it to 16". Steeper angles for the steering, 4-link and drivelines.

I have seen them taken to 14-16" many times...

ANd yes you can clear 44's...mine clears 44"s easy with only about 14" on it right now.

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

I have seen, worked on and driven them stretched to 14-16". However, I still don't recommend stretching them that far.

The 4-link itself is the same between the 8" and 12".


However for the 05-07s the 12" kit includes a different box kit (trac bar mount, centerlink/idler arm steering, etc..). They don't offer this for the 08+.

You will definitely need to go to a custom steering setup at 12" since the stock steering can't safely be run at that height.

People like to make it sound like much more than it is....on the steering stuff.

Flip the track bar, get an adjustable one and have a custom one piece drag link built up with like tie rod ends/heims on each end...do away with the split stock adjuster.
