Has anyone out there installed a lift kit on a Model 3 that you are pleased with? I see a number of different ones available, some are 'spring-over' and others just spacers.
I've not yet purchased a Model 3 and was actually looking at Model Y's - where I live (out in the sticks) I need the ground clearance of the Y but from pic's I've seen on line, a Model 3 with a lift kit which typically adds 1.75 in would work.
Thoughts and comments would be most welcome.
have said, MPP's 1.75" vertical spacer lift kit (link
) is the original (as are some other after market suspension parts that are available in different color by few brands).
Beyond that you can also add MPP's Comfort Adjustable Coilovers (link
) these can be set to +1" above OEM height without issue (they can be set for even higher but as you start to get near their upper limit the ride quality will suffer, +1" is the recommendation from MPP).
The "snow and dirt" squeaky coilovers are not for the model 3, they are not compatible with the model 3 and you will not be able to install them if you try, as confrimed by Unplugged Performance themselves - this is also why they don't show up on their website under Model 3 and instead only show under Model Y
Beyond those two things you can get slightly taller tires, on both 18" aero and 19" sport OEM wheels you can go 245 width instead of 235 width which will buy you like ... 4 sheets of paper's worth of lift, or you can get 255/45R18 on 18x9.0 et+30 (FastWheels FC04) (that's still all season), or copy the same setup as @Rcnesneg
and actually get all terrain tires (Falken Wildpeak AT Trail 225/50R18 on Sparco Terra 18x8+35)
However if you need ground clerance, Model Y truly is your best bet, by default it seats 1.1" higher than Model 3, you can put same lift kit and coilovers (in their Model Y varient) from MPP but then you can put 255/55R18 all terrain tires, tons of people have done that (ex these posts
Update - I received my spare! I test fit it on the front corner and it looks good! I can barely fit a finger between the knuckle and the tire on the top, and there's plenty of room on the side. I have good confidence I will be able to safely mount the other 4 and run this size. This size is .5" larger in diameter than stock, or a lift of 0.25".
