Body lifts and suspension lifts are both used on tires. They can both offer a ride to be taller in height and allow for larger tires and wheels. Despite that, they have many differences between them. One difference between them is in regards to their costs. Body lifts tend to cost less than suspension lifts.

Another difference between them is related to their ground clearance. Body lifts have no ground clearance, while suspension lifts will increase ground clearance. Along with that, the lift size differs. The body lift size is 2-5 inches, while a suspension life can range from 2-9 inches.

Body Lift and Suspension Lift are two types of techniques used to lift or raise certain parts of a vehicle. There are some major differences between the two. If you want to remove the cab or body of a car, a body lift is mostly used. Suspension lift, on the other hand, is used to raise the system of springs and shock absorbers attached to the wheels in a vehicle.

Before you can use body lift, you will need to add aluminum blocks or polyurethane directly between the cab of a vehicle and the body's mounts. Before suspension lift can be done, you will need to replace the system with a new one. However, the new suspension must have a little bit longer coil springs compared to the former.

A body lift does not cost too much; it is not as expensive as a suspension lift. The wheel geometry is not affected whenever a body lift is done to a car, while there is a little change when a suspension lift is done.
