Need a Spot
Greetings Sporty fans, my name is jason and i'm new to the forum. I own a 1999 sporty and cannot believe its capabilities. It is stock with slightly larger light truck tires. Looks cool but i'm in the market to upgrade. I would like to lift my sporty. I would like a suspension lift with some flex. I was thinking 2 inches on the body and two inches on the suspension. I did see some of you folks have some sweet looking sportys. Would you be willing to share some ideas with me about how to approach this and where I can find what I need? Old dude on cardomain.com has a sweet lookin lift. I am fairly mechanically inclined though mostly with engines but I was thinking some new springs, shocks and perhaps rear sway bar? Any ideas fellas? I'm gonna work on getting my profile squared away and might put some pics on so you can see my ride and offer ideas if you are willing. Thanks for any help.

Body Damage is Cool
Do some searching on the site and you will find a load of info.
Personally, I have a 1.4" body lift, UPYOURKIA front spacers, and TJ rear springs. I'm running 31" tires but had to bend back the bottom of the seam of the front fender and a little of the fender to keep it from rubbing.
Also, Dave fromn RSG sells a 4" front and rear kit that I hear is really well done. Jaybur can be contacted on this lift, he just installed it on his Sport.
I know you can go higher on the body lift but it takes alot of work and extra parts.

Read about the different lifts and talk to the guys that have them for sale and the guys that have installed them.

Good luck and keep us posted.

you will get more out of doing a 4" suspension lift than you will a 2 + 2 lift.

i highly recommend the rock sport gear lift by dave scott!
