i have a lift from arb with suspension.
advertised 2 inch but 40mm at beats sinking to 36-8 mm front rear depends on load.
Calmimi lift 3 inch would rock but limits uptravel a bit.

any way much better ride smoother with a little weight in it.

bout 1800 installed with the works

Also should consider larger dia tyres to get those diffs off the ground.

yeah i went 245/75 /16 cooper st/c this helped the diff height a bit but i wish i had the newer upper arms as they are just a tad longer (for height).

i have done some fairly substantial tracks and clearance has been as expected a little short but overcome by different techniques.

love a challenge.

Our Navara is mainly used for farm work. I made my own tray and got it galvanised. Sometimes I carry a tonne of stuff and the rear springs are very soft so I fitted a pair of those pump up polyair bellow thingos.These will alter the height about 4" or 5" on the rear end and up front I got to the torsion bar tensioners with a 19mm socket and cranked them up so the front raised and inch or two. I didn't get a wheel align and I've done 20,000 k with no visible sign of abnormal tyre wear. When I go serious driving I slip on the 31x10.5x15 Wranglers. The pump up rear stuff cost $800 from Opposite Lock and took me an hour or so to fit. I'm very happy with it. Rus.
