Hi just purchased a Suzuki Sierra wt

Why do you think a lift will make it better? Lifts generally reduce flex.

Suspension lift increases compression travel at the expense of droop. Increased compression travel can allow faster progress across rough terrain due to reduced suspension bottoming. However, the increased spring rate required to maintain a higher ride height generally worsens ride and often prevents the axle from reaching the bumpstop, which is why there’s a net loss of travel once a lift is installed. (Also many aftermarket shocks have less travel than standard)

If you are lifting for cosmetics or to fit a larger tyre, a body lift is a way to achieve this without the suspension compromises.

The trend now is towards minimal lift, as we’ve learned that lift doesn’t really make the car work better.
