I was trying to find a lift kit for my Escape and all i could find was a 1 inch lift, and i found a 3 inch body lift. Does anyone know of a company that makes lift kits for an Escape?? i was also wondering if some one could tell me if a body lift is bad for the vehicle....i thought i heard that they were not good but am not sure... Thanx

I had a Suzuki Samurai, the one that started the rollover scare back in '88. It had an extremely bad suspension from the factory, no more than 3/4" front spring travel, that is what made it rollover prone, and I could feel it in tight turns bottoming out. I had a 3" Rancho lift installed and all of that went away. The increased spring travel and heavier shocks would keep the tires glued to the road in most cases, way better than the stock suspension ever could.
I would look i to this if my Tribute wasn't 11 years and (still) 288k miles. I'm just not sure putting $300 worth of springs under it would be wise. But then again, I have noticed it does seem to sit slightly lower than most others.
