Universal iLIFT Suspension Lift Systems include components designed to allow fitment on most vehicles. Please read this information before purchasing to understand the requirements for installing an iLIFT Suspension Lift System on your vehicle.

Actuator Fitment:

The iLIFT actuator is placed at the top of the coil spring. When the system is activated, pressurized air pushes the actuator’s piston down which causes the vehicle to raise. The actuator’s piston and cylinder have seals that seal against the shock absorber’s shaft. There are five important considerations when determining if the iLIFT actuator will fit your vehicle.

1. Straight Springs Are Required

The iLIFT Suspension Lift System Actuators are designed for straight springs as shown. Factory style tapered springs and barrel springs are not compatible with iLIFT. Factory springs with a tapered or barrel shape can often be changed to a straight spring - however, this requires knowledge of the existing spring rate and may require and custom lower mount made to work with your factory shock absorber.

2. Clearance for Springs & Chassis:

For the actuator to fit, it must allow the spring to fit into the actuator and the actuator must be able to be installed without hitting the chassis. The iLIFT actuator is compatible with springs with an inner diameter of 60-65mm – and is compatible with popular springs including 60mm, 62mm, 63mm, 65mm, and 2.5”. To determine your spring inner diameter, measure the inside of the spring with a caliper, or contact your coilover manufacturer. The spring’s outer diameter cannot exceed 3.6” (91mm).

3. Installation Height

The iLIFT Actuator adds only 5/8" (16mm) of height to your spring. This requires a threaded body shock absorber with enough threads to lower the spring or modification of the lower mount to move the spring down 5/8".

4. Compatible Shaft Diameter

So that we may provide compatible components, you must provide your shock absorber’s shaft and thread diameter. Measure the shaft on your shock absorber using a caliper. iLIFT Actuators are available for shock absorbers with 12mm, 12.5mm (1/2"), 13mm, 14mm, 15mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm, 24mm, and 25mm shaft diameters. 

5. Top Mount Fitment

The shock absorber's top mount must be able to accomodate the iLIFT Actuator. In addition, the iLIFT Actuator must remain parallel to the shock absorber, while the shock absorber must be able to pivot in the top mount to allow the suspension to pivot along the suspension's movement. This may require a custom top mount or adapters in order to work with your existing top mount.
