:eek:mg Is what you very well could be thinking.

Well I've always been one to do things different, opposite of the "norm."
I was wondering if any one had info, or could direct me somewhere were I could find out what it would take to raise my car 1-2 inches higher.
I'm going to do a photoshop of it to see if I would like if or if it would look just plain stupid.


Laterz.... :66:

Is there a reason why you want to? The stock ride height is already pretty high...if you go higher, maybe move your wheels out wider to help with stability
Reason why... It may be surprising but my front will scrape on some drive way and dip areas. I know that I can turn the wheels a bit more so I won't be scraping the front.
Another reason, I think it would look cool. But not 100% on how it will look.
Hence why I will do a photo shop pic to see how it looks.

Thanks about the tip with the wheels.

What's the reason behind doing this?

I don't see much of a point in doing it, would recommend a photoshop first. Think it's better to lower it, or leave the suspension alone.
I don't want to lower it. I'm not a big fan of lowering vehicles, it's not my thing.

I'm the same way. Every comment anyone always makes to me is to lower my car but I'm perfectly happy with the stock height. I drive down shit roads daily to get to work so I'd rather have a somewhat smoother ride, even if it means Kit looks like a 4x4. :)

LMAO! Looks like a 4x4... In a way that's why I'm thinking of doing it. It may have her look a bit "beefy." :cornut:
*my roads suck also, we are constantly under construction to "fix" the roads. if they would do it right in the first place we wouldn't have so many issues.*

Put a air struts on it and you can adjust the ride height at will. And it can still ride pretty decent.
I could do that. However if I remember correctly it would cause issues for safety. And I don't like the air struts anyway. Thanks for your input though!

the air ride set up is just like a factory set up. you control the psi and height, been used to lower cars for several years, and also on 4x4's. the range rover uses air bags to raise n lower the vehicle. no safety issues.

Imo i wouldnt do that, versa's aren't cars to be raised. Fwd small hatch wouldn't look good. But if your all about that more power to ya! otherwise stay stock

Wow! Really? Guess I was told wrong. Thanks for the info. I may consider that option. @gwapo

Check air ride technologies, also awhile back someone posted a you tube video of a versa lowered with that system.
To each his or her own. Some want stock height, others lower, adn if you pull it of and it looks tastefully, you'll set a new trend. just ake your time and use a well trusted mechanic

Thanks for all of the info (and everyone else too). I have a mechanic that I trust so I'll be talking to him and look at all of the options. That would be cool if it looked sweet and I start a new trend.

i'd say go for it with the raised V. there was a guy i knew from another forum who had a B15 sentra that was raised at least 6" and had mounted a bully bar in front of the bumper. it was pretty neat, and at the least, obviously out of the ordinary.

hell, if you were to do it, i'd even suggest throwing on some rally lights and roof lights too.

Right on! I was thinking of raising my sentra when I had it. Lol! Time will tell on what I do. Just need to save money, starting now.
