2016 Sorento SXL
Extra lift in front relieves some of the driveline stress (additional angle of driveshaft to rear differential).
Truxxx.com has a new kit just put on their website last week. I ordered the kit last month before it was officially out. I had it installed on tuesday. Really like the new ride height. Drives great so far.Looking for a Lift kit for the 17 Sorento, anybody have any leads????
That doesn't look right.
Hmmm. I worry what that will look like. I don't like the appearance of cars who look like they're dragging their tail by design.It helps level out the front so it's no so forward tilted. Plus the lowest clearance on the vehicle stock is the front end.
UPDATE: I phoned Truxxx today about their 2" lift kit and they said the 1.5" lift in the back is a typo. It is 2" lift both front and rear. They also claimed they test their products with local dealers because they want to make sure the products function right and don't void the vehicle warranty. Based on that testing, they said, the 2" lift kit for my 2016 Sorento SX would not alter the front MacPherson strut suspension geometry to cause something like excessive wear on the outer tread of the tire, and it would not cause premature wear of the CV joints.Hmmm. I worry what that will look like. I don't like the appearance of cars who look like they're dragging their tail by design.
Plus, I thought I'd seen in some other thread in this forum that the max you could lift the Sorento's strut suspension is about 1 5/8" before the lift messes with the alignment (cast/camber) and/or the puts stress on the CV joint. Anybody seen or heard that as well?
See my comments elsewhere in this thread about the Truxxx product.
Have you seen these asfir skid plates Front Skid Plate I've just purchased one, not sure of the shipping time yet but will post an update.The point is to be able to get my family out to good camping spots and get off the beaten path. Not needing a full offroad vehicle for that. (Have an 87 bronco for beating up on heavy trails) a little more clearance is not a bad thing. Fabricating a skid plate is next on my list. 👍🏻
I know 1.6" F and 2.2" R is not a significant lift but I am curious if you were able to set alignment to OEM specs after installing these. Also curious how it affected the ride.
Did you wrap your door handles? im about to do my window trim and want to get rid of the chrome handles as well but don't want to plastidip/hyperdip the door handles.Truxxx.com has a new kit just put on their website last week.

Nice Fenn. I've got eibach springs + 20mm blocks, and soon will have 245/65/17s. Will put some pics up when the new wheels/tyres go on.
