Overlanding Ford Transit Lift Kit Install

Ford Transit Lift Kit

Ford Transit Lift Kit

A customer dropped off their 2020 Ford Transit with a full #VanLife setup installed. All that extra weight left it sitting pretty low, and he wanted to take it overlanding. The solution A modest 2" lift kit!

The customer went with Bilstein struts in the front with this installation.


...and leaf spring spacers in the rear.


The results were pretty satisfactory, but we advised the customer that the added weight in the rear still left the rear sitting lower than the front, and the leaf springs are bowed in the wrong direction. Where there should be a smiley face, there's a frown! The customer said he'll be returning to have helper springs installed in the rear to help fix this at a later date. Until then, this Transit looks much more ready for an off-road adventure!
