Supplier For Ford Escape 3" Lift Kit Found

I have found a supplier, and am in discussions for pricing on a 3" Lift Kit for the AWD Ford Escape (Probably would work with FWD also, but why). Individual pricing is currently $830USD + Shipping. Comes with:

TOP-R Shock absorbers
(Add-long-nitrogen)( front)

TOP-R 9-position adjustable
Shock absorbers(rear)

Springs(rear&front)

Sway bar link

Adjustable pitman arm kits

Shock boots

Trying to get a discounted pricing on a 10 unit order.

Let me know if your interested.

"What was done to accomodate the brake lines on the rear, with this lift kit, as they would not be long enough unless something was changed"

"You can replace it by lengthen brake line (metal brake line) - US$38/ set(2pcs)"

Looks like the set with shipping for a 10pc order is around the $1100 Mark, including the brake lines. Checking back into it, to see if they can do better on the pricing for shipping.

I thought the point of having 20" tires was to lower a vehicle and have low profile tires.

At 3", is there not going to be any driveline issues? I would think the stock CVs wouldn't cut it at that height.

btw, nice looking LJ doubledee.

@ doubledee90

Theres lots of room for 30's on an escape with stock setup no mods.
I have 29's and theres still a few inches of each side of tire for the snow and mud to pile up on the wheel wells. My next set o skins will be 31's whicj I can now see will fit but then there wont be muck room for snow so I'll probably only use those in summer.

current tire: trailcutter R/T - P235/75R15 which are 6 ply 29in

Here's the tightest spot behind the fronts.

here's a shot with the fronts turned so that the distance to the wheel well is at its least.

http://i356.photobucket.com/albums/...pg?t=1224946467


as you can see I should have ordered 30's or 31's.
Next will be LT 10.50x31R15 very common size easy to find.
